Our Burbank personal injury office is conveniently located across from the Burbank Town Center. Burbank is known as being the “Media Capital of the World” and is located only five miles or so northeast of Hollywood and twelve miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.
Currently, just over 100,000 people call this “city of entertainment” home, with the majority of people commuting to Burbank from surrounding So-Cal communities to help run companies such as The Walt Disney Company, ABC Studios, Warner Bros, and NBC.
A lot of those commuting to Burbank do so by vehicle, but as anyone who parks in the area will tell you, parking in Burbank is not cheap. That is why many workers travel by public transport, including Metrolink, Amtrak, and the Burbank Bus.
Unfortunately, all modes of transport, including public transport, have the daily risk of being involved in a truck-related accident.
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:
These numbers are far too high, though what is more alarming is that despite public awareness campaigns, these numbers are not decreasing each year.
If so, it is important that you first seek medical treatment for any injuries you have sustained. Even if you feel that you have not suffered an injury, soft tissue injuries can start to affect you within hours or days after the accident.
By receiving medical attention as soon as possible you can significantly reduce your recovery time, while also ensuring that you have a third-party record of having sustained injuries in the accident.
The next important step is to speak to a Burbank personal injury lawyer who is experienced in handling:
