Personal Injury Attorneys in Covina
Incorporated in 1901, Covina is a city in Los Angeles County, about 22 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles, in the San Gabriel Valley.
Founded in 1882 by Joseph Swift Phillips, it got its name from Frederick Eaton, who noticed how the valleys of the adjacent San Gabriel Mountains formed a natural cove around the vineyards. Eaton merged the words “cove” and “vine” and came up with the name Covina.
Although Covina is a small city with a population of only around 50,000 people, it has its share of accidents, often caused by the negligent behavior of others.
For example, according to the latest annual OTS Crash Ranking Results, Covina ranks #59 out of 94 cities for the number of pedestrians killed or injured every year.
Note: The OTS Crash Ranking Results compare a city’s traffic safety statistics to those of other cities with similar-sized populations.

The amount of damages you might recover depends on various factors. Talk to a personal injury attorney at Cohen & Marzban about what compensation you might be able to claim.
“Personal injury” is used in a legal context where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another person or entity.
The three grounds for filing personal injury claims are:
- Negligence (the most common)
- Strict Liability
- Intentional Wrongs
Negligence is any act or omission (failure to act) by the other party that results in a breach of their duty of care that could likely cause injuries to others.
Events that might lead to a personal injury claim include:
Car Accidents – One of the leading causes of personal injuries in Covina. Car accidents typically occur due to speeding, fatigue, aggressive driving, mechanical defects, DUI, distracted driving, and improper turning.
Truck Accidents – You don’t stand a chance against a large truck that weighs significantly more than your car. Statistics published by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show that about 97% of vehicle occupants killed in two-vehicle crashes involving a passenger vehicle and a large truck are occupants of the passenger vehicles.
Motorcycle Accidents – Riding a motorcycle is a great way to travel in Covina. But, as a rider or passenger, you stand a much higher chance of sustaining injuries when you are involved in a motorcycle accident. Other road users are often not observant enough to avoid an accident with a motorcycle they did not see coming.
Uber and Lyft Accidents – In most cities, including Covina, many residents depend on ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft. It is a convenient and responsible way to travel, especially if you’re meeting friends or family for drinks. However, with the surge in popularity of ride-hailing services comes an increase in Uber and Lyft accidents and personal injury claims.
Slip and Fall Accidents – Falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. Many Covina residents are injured in slip and fall accidents every year. Typical causes include slipping on wet floors, losing your balance on uneven pavements, etc.
