Personal Injury Attorneys in Glendale
Glendale is a city in the San Fernando Valley and Verdugo Mountains regions of Los Angeles County.

It’s best known for its Brand Boulevard, but has its fair share of accidents caused by negligent behavior.
For example, according to the latest annual OTS Crash Ranking Results, Glendale ranks #13 out of 59 cities for the number of pedestrians killed or injured every year. And for pedestrians over the age of 65 years, it ranks third.
Note: The OTS Crash Ranking Results compare a city’s traffic safety statistics to those of other cities with similar-sized populations.

A personal injury attorney at Cohen & Marzban can explain what damages you can claim based on your unique 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 others.

Accidents that often cause personal injuries include the following:
Car Accidents – Car accidents are typically the number one reason given by residents of Glendale for personal injuries sustained. The main causes of car accidents include speeding, driving under the influence, fatigue, improper turning, aggressive driving, distracted driving, and mechanical failure.
Truck Accidents – A large truck weighing between 20 and 30 times more than your car is less maneuverable than other vehicles on the road. Trucks are often unable to stop or swerve out of the way in time to avoid an accident. According to statistics published by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), 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 Glendale. However, as a rider or passenger, you have a much higher risk of suffering serious injuries if you’re involved in a motorcycle accident. Motorists are often 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 to your destination in Glendale. And it’s a responsible way to travel if you’re planning on meeting friends or family for drinks. However, 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 Glendale residents suffer injuries from slip and fall accidents. Typical reasons include walking on wet, slippery floors and uneven or damaged surfaces.
