The Japanese Garden: One of Van Nuys’ most unique and gorgeous sites is the 6.5-acre public, japanese-style garden located in the Lake Balboa district. Its official Japanese name is “Suihō-en”, meaning “garden of water and fragrance” and it was purposefully constructed besides the city’s water reclamation plant to highlight the benefits of harnessing reclaimed water for alternative uses.

The Getty: Sometimes referred to as The Getty Center, this $1.3 billion campus houses a massive collection of 20th-century artwork and hosts cultural events year-round. Just as impressive as its contents, the buildings themselves are an attraction in themselves from which visitors can view breathtaking views of the surrounding Los Angeles cityscape.

Lake Balboa/Anthony C. Beilenson Park: Adjacent to Van Nuys lies a massive 80-acre park named after former California Congressman Anthony C. Beilenson. At the heart of the park lies Lake Balboa, which is surrounded by bike paths, barbecue pits, fishing spots and even boat rentals. Lake Balboa park is a popular destination for those looking to escape the city for a while and spend the day in nature with their friends and family.

Due to the enormous population and constant stream of visitors to the city each year, Los Angeles has more personal injuries than almost any other city in the entire country, ranking 3rd in auto accidents alone.

Personal Injuries

Personal injuries in a legal context refer to cases where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another party.

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 by the defendant that results in a breach of their duty of care that could likely cause injuries to others.

Common accidents that might cause personal injuries include:

Car Accidents: Serious car accidents often lead to personal injuries. Typical causes are speeding, DUI, fatigue, wrong turning, aggressive driving, distracted driving, and mechanical failure.

Truck Accidents: Truck accidents are often lethal – an accident with a large truck that is significantly heavier than your vehicle frequently doesn’t end well. Statistics published by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show that 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 – Being on a motorcycle is a great way to travel in Van Nuys. But as a rider or passenger, you don’t have a lot of protection against other vehicles on the road. And you have a higher risk of suffering bad injuries in a motorcycle accident. Motorists often don’t pay enough attention to motorcycles on the road until it’s too late.

Uber and Lyft Accidents – Using ride-hailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, are a popular and convenient way of traveling in Van Nuys. But as the popularity of ride-hailing services increases, so do the number of accidents and personal injury claims.

Slip and Fall Accidents – Data shows that falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. Every year many Van Nuys residents are injured in slip and fall accidents. Wet, slippery floors and uneven surfaces, for example, often result in bad falls.
