Personal Injury Attorneys in West Covina
West Covina is a city in Los Angeles County. It is located 19 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles in the Eastern San Gabriel Valley and is part of Greater Los Angeles.
It began as an agricultural community surrounded by citrus and walnut groves. West Covina was incorporated as an independent city in 1923 to stop the City of Covina from building a sewage farm in the area.
Since its humble beginnings, West Covina has grown to a city of more than 100,000 people. And as it grew, so did the number of serious accidents caused by the negligent behavior of others.
For example, according to the latest annual OTS Crash Ranking Results, West Covina ranks #19 out of 59 cities for the number of crashes (fatal & injury).
Note: The OTS Crash Ranking Results compare a city’s traffic safety statistics to those of other cities with similar-sized populations.

Legally speaking, personal injuries refer to cases where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another person or entity.
There are three grounds for filing a personal injury claim, namely:
- Negligence (the most common)
- Strict Liability
- Intentional Wrongs
Negligence is any act or omission (failure to act) by the other party that results in a breach of their duty of care which could likely cause injuries to you or others.

Accidents that might cause personal injuries include, but are not limited to, the following:
Car Accidents – Car accidents are one of the top reasons residents of West Covina give for personal injuries sustained. Typical causes include speeding, driving under the influence, fatigue, improper turning, aggressive driving, distracted driving, and mechanical failure.
Truck Accidents – Large trucks are less maneuverable than other vehicles on the road. Truck accidents typically occur when a truck cannot stop or swerve out of the way in time to avoid another vehicle or pedestrian.
Motorcycle Accidents – Riding a motorcycle is enjoyable and an economical way of traveling in West Covina. But, as a rider or passenger, you have a much higher chance of sustaining injuries if you are involved in a motorcycle accident. Motorists often don’t pay enough attention to motorcycles while driving.
Uber and Lyft Accidents – Ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, are a popular alternative to conventional public transport systems. And if you’re planning on meeting friends or family in West Covina for drinks, you should not drink and drive. But that doesn’t mean using a ride-hailing service is always a safe way to travel. As more and more people use ride-hailing services, the number of Uber and Lyft accidents increases.
Slip and Fall Accidents – Statistics show that falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. And residents of West Covina are not immune to slip and fall accidents. The main reasons include walking on wet, slippery floors and uneven or damaged surfaces.
