Personal Injury Attorneys in Manhattan Beach
Manhattan Beach is a city in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County – only five miles from LAX Airport and about 20 miles from Downtown Los Angeles. It has over 2 miles of ocean frontage and is popular with beach volleyball and surfing enthusiasts.
Despite being a mecca for sun, surfing, fine dining, and shopping, Manhattan Beach has its fair share of accidents, often caused by the negligent behavior of others.
For example, according to the latest annual OTS Crash Ranking Results, Manhattan Beach ranks #12 out of 94 cities for the number of bicyclists killed or injured every year. And it ranks #7 for bicyclists under 15.
Note: The OTS Crash Ranking Results compare a city’s traffic safety statistics to those of other cities with similar-sized populations.

From a legal perspective, personal injuries refer to instances where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another party.
The three grounds for filing a personal injury claim are:
- Negligence (the most common)
- Strict Liability
- Intentional Wrongs
Negligence is any act (or 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 frequently cause personal injuries include:
Truck Accidents – You do not really stand a chance against a large truck weighing 20 to 30 times more than your car. 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 – Traveling on a motorcycle in Manhattan Beach is a fun and economical way to reach your destination or enjoy the scenery. However, whether you are a rider or passenger, you don’t have a lot of protection against other vehicles on the road. Motorcyclists have a higher risk of suffering injuries in an accident as motorists often do not notice them until it is too late!
Uber and Lyft Accidents – Ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft have become a popular way of reaching your destination in Manhattan Beach. And although it may be a responsible way to travel when you are planning on having drinks with family or friends, it is not necessarily a safe way to travel. As more people start using ride-hailing services, the number of accidents and personal injury claims continues to increase.
Slip and Fall Accidents – Data shows that falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. And Manhattan Beach is no exception. Every year many Manhattan Beach residents are seriously injured in slip and fall accidents. Typical causes include wet, slippery floors and uneven surfaces.
