Pasadena’s gorgeous landscape and popular attractions also make it an accident-prone city. Each year, thousands of injuries are reported in Pasadena. Additionally, a spike in traffic-related accidents in injuries indicates that Pasadena is enjoying life in the wake of the recovering economy that tanked nearly a decade ago. As the economy continues to improve more and more vehicles are on the road. Increased traffic means an increase in accidents and injuries.

Los Angeles County – home to Pasadena – also sees the highest rate of motorcycle crashes and injuries each year. In fact, Los Angeles County has more than two times as many motorcycle accidents than the next highest county.
With more than 1.7 Million daily motor vehicle miles traveled in Pasadena each day, accidents are inevitable.
If you or someone you know has been injured in one of the following Pasadena accidents, then you should contact an experienced injury attorney in Pasadena immediately:
In California, liability can be divided between any parties involved in an accident to the degree to which they were responsible. This is known as pure comparative negligence. It allows injured parties to recover compensation from another party even if they were partially to blame.
For example, if you were speeding and involved in an accident with another driver who was texting while driving, you would both likely be found to be partially at-fault. If you are found to be 25% responsible for the accident you would only be permitted to recover 75% of your damages from the other driver.
Similarly, the other driver would be permitted to seek damages from you or your insurance company. But his or her recovery from you would be limited to 25% of his total damages.
In many cases, our clients end up seeking compensation from an at-fault party’s insurance company. This can be true for traffic-related cases, slip and fall cases, or premises liability cases. Insurance companies are not in the business of handing out money. When you submit a claim they will do everything in their power to pay as little to you as possible. In many cases, they may deny claims without much – or any – thought.
Your chances of recovering the full amount of compensation you require to recover from your injuries improve significantly when you enlist the assistance of a qualified Pasadena personal injury attorney. Lawyers are trained negotiators and understand the complicated processes involved in pursuing compensation.
The legal team at Glotzer & Leib, LLP have battled insurance companies for decades. This experience has allowed us to understand the tricks and tactics they employ to minimize payouts to accident victims. We use our experience to help clients negotiate appropriate and meaningful settlements to help get their lives back on track.
California imposes a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims.
This window is shorter if the at-fault party is a government entity. In those cases, an administrative claim must be filed within 60 days of the incident.
Even though you generally have two years to file a claim you should start the process as soon as possible after your accident. The at-fault party’s insurance company will begin collecting evidence and building a defense immediately.
Enlisting our personal injury lawyers shortly after an accident can help to ensure you have the time and resources to create a persuasive case. Evidence may disappear and eyewitness memories will fade with time, so it is incredibly important to document and recover these as soon as possible.
If you have been involved in a Pasadena accident you may be able to recover compensation from an at-fault party for your injuries. Compensation is generally broken down into two categories: economic and non-economic.
Economic damages are those awarded for verifiable, calculable expenses you incur and may include:
Non-economic damages are those awarded for injuries that are harder to assign a monetary value.
These often include:
Punitive damages are generally not available in California personal injury lawsuits. There are a few exceptions, such as when an accident is willful or malicious or results in death while executing a felony.
