Trusted Personal Injury Attorneys in Pasadena, CA
Founded in 1886, Pasadena was the second city, after the City of Los Angeles, to be incorporated in what is now Los Angeles County. It’s the most populated city in the San Gabriel Valley and the ninth-largest city in Los Angeles County. But like any other city in California, bad accidents caused by negligent behavior do occur.
For example, the latest annual OTS Crash Ranking Results shows how Pasadena ranks out of 59 cities:
- Ranks #12 in the total number of crash victims killed or injured – more than 900 per year.
- Ranks #3 in the number of pedestrians killed or injured.
- Ranks #6 in the number of bicyclists killed or injured.

Personal injuries refer to cases where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another person or entity.
The three grounds on which you can file a personal injury claim are:
- Negligence (the most common)
- Strict Liability
- Intentional Wrongs
Negligence is any act or omission by the defendant that results in a breach of their duty of care that could likely cause injuries to others. It has four key elements, 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 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 often result in personal injuries include:
Car Accidents – Car accidents are often the number one cause of personal injury claims in Pasadena and other cities across the country. The leading causes of car accidents include speeding, driving under the influence, fatigue, improper turning, aggressive driving, distracted driving, and mechanical failure.
Truck Accidents – Being involved in an accident with a large truck weighing between 20 and 30 times more than your car can have grave consequences. 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 a fun and economical way of traveling in Pasadena. Unfortunately, as a rider or passenger, you have a much higher chance of sustaining bad injuries if you’re involved in a motorcycle accident. Motorists are often not observant enough and fail to pay close enough attention to motorcycles.
Uber and Lyft Accidents – In most cities, including Pasadena, many people enjoy the convenience of using ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, to reach their destination. It’s often a better alternative to using public transportation services. But 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 people are injured in slip and fall accidents in Pasadena. Typical causes include wet, slippery floors and uneven or damaged surfaces.
