Personal Injury Attorneys in Encino
Encino (Spanish for “oak”) is a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles. It’s infamous for being mentioned in Frank Zappa’s 1982 hit song “Valley Girl” – many believe this upper-middle-class suburb hasn’t changed much since then. And like all suburbs in Los Angeles, accidents caused by negligent behavior do occur.

Talk to a personal injury attorney at Cohen & Marzban to find out what damages you can claim based on your individual case.
In a legal context, personal injuries refer to cases where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another person or entity.
There are three grounds on which you can file a personal injury claim, namely:
- Negligence (the most common)
- Strict Liability
- Intentional Wrongs
Negligence is any act or omission (failure to act) by the defendant that results in a breach of their duty of care that could likely cause injuries to you or others.
Talk to a personal injury lawyer to see if this applies to your case.
Accidents that might result in personal injuries often include:
Car Accidents – Car accidents often lead to personal injuries in Encino. The reasons most car accidents happen include speeding, drunk driving, fatigue, improper turning, aggressive driving, inattentive driving, and mechanical breakdowns.
Truck Accidents – Large or heavy trucks are less maneuverable than most other vehicles. Truck accidents often happen when a truck is unable to stop or turn in time to avoid colliding with another vehicle or pedestrian. Studies show 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 pleasing and fuel-efficient way of traveling in Encino. But whether you’re a rider or passenger, you have a much higher risk of being badly insured if you’re involved in a motorcycle accident. Motorists are often blissfully unaware of motorcycles until it’s too late.
Uber and Lyft Accidents – Ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, have become very popular in recent years to get you from A to B. And with drinking and driving being a big no-no, there is no better way to travel to friends or family you’re meeting for drinks. But that doesn’t make ride-hailing services a safe way to travel. As more and more people use ride-hailing services, the number of Uber and Lyft accidents keeps on increasing.
Slip and Fall Accidents – According to the World Health Organization (WHO), falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. Slip and fall accidents are as common in Encino as anywhere else. Walking on wet, slippery floors and uneven or damaged surfaces can lead to serious falls.
