Los Angeles County Suffers Highest Truck-Related Injuries and Fatalities in State

Out of the numerous counties throughout all of California, Los Angeles County is known for having the highest number of truck-related injuries and fatalities year after year.

According to California Highway Patrol, there were:

  • 1,464 truck-related injuries and 46 truck-related fatalities in 2009
  • 1,535 truck-related injuries and 47 truck-related fatalities in 2010
  • 1,607 truck-related injuries and 47 truck-related fatalities in 2011
  • 1,592 truck-related injuries and 39 truck-related facilities in 2012
  • 1,689 truck-related injuries and 53 truck-related fatalities in 2013

These numbers are far too high, though what is more alarming is that despite public awareness campaigns, these numbers are not decreasing each year.

Have You Been Involved in a Truck-Related Accident?

Have you been involved in a truck-related accident in Burbank or the surrounding areas? The moments following such incidents can be chaotic and overwhelming, making it crucial to know the immediate steps to take not only for your health but also for any potential legal action.

Immediate Medical Attention: The First Step to Recovery

Our first piece of advice at Glotzer & Leib, LLP is clear: prioritize your health. We highly recommend that if you’ve been involved in a truck accident, seeking medical treatment immediately is imperative. Even if you believe you’re uninjured, it’s essential to consider that some injuries, particularly soft tissue injuries, may not present symptoms until hours or days after the incident.

Immediate medical attention serves two critical purposes:

  1. Health and Recovery: Prompt diagnosis and treatment can significantly reduce your recovery time, helping you return to your daily life as soon as possible.
  2. Legal Documentation: A third-party medical record of your injuries immediately following the accident is invaluable. This documentation can play a pivotal role in substantiating your claim, ensuring that you receive the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

The next important step is to speak to a Burbank personal injury lawyer who is experienced in handling:

Our law firm has the experience and resources necessary to prove that you were not at fault in an accident, whether that be that a driver was suffering from fatigue, distracted, or was driving under the influence.

If you have been involved in a vehicle-related accident, we invite you to contact our Burbank personal injury attorneys or call us at (818) 468-3126

We will aggressively protect and uphold your rights so that you can receive the maximum amount of compensation possible for your claim.

If you’ve been injured in an accident in California, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim. However, you shouldn’t wait until the last minute to start the process. It will take your personal injury attorney some time to properly investigate your accident and prepare your case. Therefore, if you’ve been injured in an accident in California, you should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

Many personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means that you don’t owe anything unless your case is a success. The experienced attorneys at Glotzer & Leib, LLP, adhere to this payment structure: if we don’t win your lawsuit, you don’t owe us a dime.

In legal parlance, “damages” refers to the money a court awards a plaintiff as compensation for a wrong that was committed against him or her by another party. If you’ve been injured in a car accident in California, you may be entitled to several types of damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you should take the following steps:

See a doctor: When it comes to traffic accidents, your health comes first. Following a car accident, you should immediately seek medical attention. And this applies even if you don’t believe you’ve been injured—some injuries don’t present symptoms for days or even weeks, so you should see a doctor regardless of whether you are experiencing pain or discomfort. 

Collect evidence: Next, you should begin to assemble evidence related to your accident. Common evidence in car accident cases includes: 

  • The insurance and contact information of everyone involved in the car accident
  • The contact information of any witnesses to the accident
  • All medical records related to injuries you suffered as a result of the accident
  • Photographs of the accident site, your car, and any other vehicles involved in the accident

Contact a car accident lawyer: Finally, following a car accident in California, you should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. At Glotzer & Leib, LLP, our experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorneys are here to help you obtain fair compensation for injuries suffered in your California car accident. Please contact us as soon as possible to schedule a free consultation.

      “Mr. Glotzer represented me after I was involved in a car accident. I was badly injured,but the insurance company refused to offer me a reasonable settlement. I decided to find an attorney and decided to hire Josh.

      His law firm did a great job on my case. They were very responsive to all my questions and obtained a great resolution for me. I received way more money than was originally offered. I would recommend their firm to friends and family.”
