Personal Injury Attorneys in North Hills
North Hills is a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley region of the City of Los Angeles. It used to be an agricultural community known as Mission Acres but was renamed Sepulveda after the Second World War in honor of a prominent California family. In 1991 it was renamed North Hills.
It borders Northridge to the west, Panorama City to the east, Van Nuys to the south, and Granada Hills to the north. Residents and tourists alike enjoy the urban feel, coffee shops, and parks that North Hills is known for.

Personal injuries refer to instances where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another party.
The 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.
Negligence has four key components, namely:
- Duty of care owed – The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care.
- Duty of care breached – The defendant failed to fulfill their duty of care due to a careless act or failure to act.
- Causation – The defendant’s breach of duty was the proximate (main) cause of the accident.
- Damages – The plaintiff suffered compensable losses as a result of the accident.
Accidents that might cause personal injuries include:
Car Accidents – High-speed collisions are one of the most frequent causes of serious or fatal injuries. It is often associated with fatigue and a lack of concentration, wrong turning, aggressive driving, and driving under the influence.
Truck Accidents – Large trucks are not as maneuverable as other vehicles on the road. They are often not able to stop or swerve out of the way in time to avoid an accident. An accident between a large truck and another vehicle often leaves the passenger(s) of the other vehicle seriously injured.
Motorcycle Accidents – Traveling on a motorcycle in North Hills can be enjoyable. But as a rider or passenger, you are very vulnerable to other vehicles on the road. Motorists are often not observant enough and cannot avoid an accident with a motorcycle they didn’t see coming.
Uber and Lyft Accidents – Uber and Lyft are popular ways of reaching your destination in North Hills. And it is a responsible way to travel if you want to have drinks with family or friends. But it is not necessarily a safe way to travel.
Slip and Fall Accidents – According to statistics, falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. And North Hills is known to have its fair share of slip and fall accidents. Typical causes include wet, slippery floors and uneven surfaces.
