Personal Injury Attorneys in Culver City
Culver City is a city in Los Angeles County, California. Named after its founder, Harry Culver (originally from Milford, Nebraska), it became an incorporated entity in 1917. It has been a hub for film production since the 1020s when Metro Goldwyn Mayer (now Sony Pictures Studios) built their studios there.
Like other cities, Culver City has its fair share of accidents caused by negligent behavior.
For example, according to the latest annual OTS Crash Ranking Results, Culver City ranks #3 out of 94 cities for the number of motorcyclists killed or injured every year. And for pedestrians under the age of 15 years, it ranks second.
Note: The OTS Crash Ranking Results compare a city’s traffic safety statistics to those of other cities with similar-sized populations.

Personal injuries refer to cases where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another person or entity.
The three grounds for a personal injury lawsuit 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.

Common accidents that might cause personal injuries include the following:
Car Accidents – Car accidents are typically one of the top reasons given by residents of Culver City for personal injuries sustained. The main causes of car accidents include speeding, driving under the influence, tiredness, wrong turning, aggressive driving, and distracted driving.
For example, Culver City had 60 speed-related fatal & injury crashes according to the latest annual OTS Crash Ranking Results.
Truck Accidents – Trucks are typically less maneuverable than other vehicles on the road. A large truck weighing between 20 and 30 times more than your car is often unable to stop or swerve out of the way in time to avoid an accident. According to statistics, 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 an enjoyable and fuel-efficient way of traveling in Culver City. However, as a rider or passenger, you have a much higher chance of sustaining bad or lethal injuries if you are involved in a motorcycle accident. Motorists are typically not observant enough to be on the lookout for motorcycles.
Uber and Lyft Accidents – Ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, are a popular and convenient way of traveling in Culver City. And it’s a responsible way to travel if you’re planning on having some alcoholic drinks at your destination. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a safe way to travel. As the number of people using ride-hailing services increases, so do the number of Uber and Lyft accidents.
Slip and Fall Accidents – According to the World Health Organization (WHO), falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. Every year many Culver City residents sustain serious injuries from slip and fall accidents. Typical reasons include walking on wet, slippery floors and uneven or damaged surfaces.
