Understanding Car Accident Liability in Los Angeles

Our experienced car accident attorneys at Cohen & Marzban will meticulously investigate your accident to identify all liable parties and build a strong case to secure the compensation you deserve. Here are some of the key factors considered in determining liability:

Negligent Drivers

A common cause of car accidents is driver negligence. This encompasses a wide range of behaviors that breach the duty of care owed to other drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.

Negligent actions include:

  • Distracted Driving: Using cell phones, texting, adjusting the radio or GPS, eating, grooming, or engaging in other distractions that take a driver’s focus away from the road.
  • Speeding: Exceeding the speed limit or driving too fast for conditions significantly increases the risk of accidents and the severity of injuries that result from crashes.
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI): Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is illegal and dangerous, impairing a driver’s judgment, coordination, and reaction time.
  • Reckless Driving: Weaving through traffic, speeding, ignoring traffic signals, and making unsafe lane changes increase the risk of accidents.
  • Drowsy Driving: Drivers who are tired or sleep-deprived have slower reaction times and may even fall asleep at the wheel.
  • Failure to Yield: Failing to yield the right-of-way at intersections or when merging is a common cause of accidents, often resulting in T-bone or side-impact crashes.
  • Unsafe Lane Changes: Drivers who fail to check their blind spots or signal properly before changing lanes can cause serious accidents.

We will thoroughly investigate your case to identify negligent drivers and collect evidence of their failure to meet their duty of care to others on the road.

Vehicle Manufacturers

If a defective vehicle part, such as faulty brakes, tires, steering systems, or airbags, contributed to the accident, the vehicle manufacturer may be held liable under product liability laws.

Government Entities

In some cases, dangerous road conditions, such as poorly maintained roads, inadequate lighting, missing or obscured traffic signs, or faulty traffic signals, can contribute to accidents. The government entity responsible for maintaining the road may be held liable for failing to provide a safe driving environment.

Common Causes of Car Accidents in Los Angeles

Understanding the common causes of car accidents in Los Angeles can help raise awareness and promote safer driving practices.

While the factors mentioned above contribute to many accidents, specific types of accidents are prevalent in Los Angeles due to traffic congestion, driving habits, and road design:

  • Rear-End Collisions: These are often caused by tailgating, distracted driving, or sudden stops in heavy traffic.
  • Intersection Accidents: Intersections are high-risk areas where drivers fail to yield the right-of-way, run red lights, or make improper turns.
  • Side-Impact Accidents (T-Bone Collisions): These accidents often occur at intersections and can result in serious injuries, particularly for those on the side of impact.
  • Hit-and-Run Accidents: These incidents require swift investigation to identify the at-fault driver and hold them accountable.
  • Multi-Vehicle Accidents: Los Angeles freeways are prone to chain-reaction accidents involving multiple vehicles, often triggered by a single negligent driver.
  • Highway Accidents: High speeds and heavy traffic on Los Angeles freeways increase the risk of serious accidents.

Our experienced Los Angeles car accident attorneys are skilled at investigating and analyzing the specific circumstances of each accident to determine liability and build a strong case for our clients.

Seek medical attention immediately, even if you don’t feel seriously injured. Report the accident to the police and exchange information with the other driver(s). Document the scene with photos and gather witness information. Contact a car accident attorney as soon as possible to discuss your legal rights.

California follows a comparative negligence rule. Even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you may still be able to recover compensation, but your award may be reduced based on your percentage of fault.

Generally, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a car accident lawsuit in California.

The value of your case depends on various factors, including the severity of your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and the degree of the other party’s negligence. Our attorneys will assess your case and fight for the maximum compensation you deserve.
