If you have been involved in a car accident, make sure you take care of your safety, and the safety of those around you first. At Downtown L.A. Law, we will never put the client’s claim in front of their health. With that said, it is important that you follow these steps immediately following an accident:
- 1. Make sure everyone around you is safe. We simply cannot stress this enough
- 2. Do not talk to the other party regarding fault or liability.
- 3. Contact the local police department and report the accident.
- 4. Photograph and document the accident. Take as many pictures as necessary. Take pictures of all other vehicles involved in the accident as well Document as much of the accident as possible before you forget, including:Where it happenedm, How the accident took place, The time of day, and the weather at time of accident,
- 5. Exchange information with the other parties involved. It is important that you document all their information, such as insurance info, policy number, drivers license, name, phone number and address. Additionally, take a written description of other cars involved, such as make, model, license plate number, and even the vehicle identification number if possible.
- 6. Collect all witness information. In situations where fault is at issue, witnesses can be your best source for proving that the other party was at fault for the accident.
- 7. Never speak to the insurance companies. Insurance companies are skilled at getting you to make statement that will hurt your case. Allow us to do the work for you. You should simply focusing on getting better, and going on with your life.
What are the factors that contribute to car crashes?
No one Los Angeles car crash is the same. Some factors that can contribute to car accidents are:
Driving While Distracted: This is the leading cause of accidents in Los Angeles, and accounts for roughly 80 percent of all car automotive accidents nationwide. Common variables include talking and texting on the cell phone, putting on makeup, eating, talking to other passengers, or engaging in other activities
Driver Error: Driver error is considered negligence on the part of the driver, and therefore grounds for liability.
Traffic Law Violations: Car accidents in Los Angeles often result from traffic violations such as following improperly, illegal or dangerous lane changing, not following traffic signs or signals, failure to yield right of way, failure to observe warnings, signal or obey traffic signals, and driving in excess of speed limits.
Defective Products: Many times, a car accident in Los Angeles is not the result of faulty driving, but rather the product of a variable completely outside the drivers control. Product Defect in Automobile Accidents may be a result of faulty tires, airbags, seat belts, construction or anything else structurally wrong with the car.
Our experienced car accident attorneys will review your case and determine if someone else is liable for your injuries and damages. If someone else is responsible for the accident, they could possibly owe you compensation or monetary damages.

Personal injury is an area of law based on damages that affect the body. Physical harm is the main predicate for these claims, and injuries can happen in any number of ways whether in car accidents, dog bites, construction accidents, bed bugs, slip and falls, and by defective products. These injuries can happen anywhere, whether at work, in the park, or in someone’s yard. Injury Cases are handled by a personal injury lawyer and will be handled with a settlement between us and the insurance agency, or we will go to civil court to seek a verdict.
Basis of a Claim
In order to file a lawsuit, you must be aware of the concept of negligence. You will only be able to win your personal injury case if you can prove that the opposing party was negligent in his duties and caused you harm. Negligence can be established as true via the following four points:
- You were owed a duty of care
- The duty of care was breached
- The breach caused an injury
- The accident resulted in physical harm
