Interstate Route 605 Freeway Accident Attorneys

Interstate 605 is a north-south highway in the greater Los Angeles area of southern California. It runs just over 27 miles from Seal Beach to Irwindale. It is commonly referred to as the San Gabriel River Freeway after the river that closely parallels its route. At the southern end of the I-605 are the San Diego 405 Freeway and Garden Grove State Route 22 in Seal Beach. The 605 Freeway runs north through the Los Angeles Basin and San Gabriel Valley. The San Gabriel River Freeway ends at its junction with the Foothill Freeway in Duarte.

Throughout most of its route, the San Gabriel River Freeway has a carpool lane to help alleviate congestion. There are, however, many traffic jams along the 605 Freeway. It is especially busy near the I-5, Santa Ana Freeway.

Common Accident Causes

There are many contributing factors in Interstate 605 accidents. A few common causes of injury accidents along the San Gabriel River Freeway include:

  • Truck Routes: Interstate 605 has connections to the 105 Freeway, which allows access to LAX. It also connects to the 91, 5, 60, 10 and 210 Freeways. All of these connections provide direct routes to railways and truck deports making the I-605 an important commercial route for many trucking companies.
  • Shoulder: Local motorists know that the shoulder to the left of the car pool lanes along the I-605 is very small. Drivers who have to pull over often have to park with their vehicle still partially in the lane of traffic. Even motorists who can pull all the way of the roadway may have to stand in traffic to exit their vehicle. Drivers should keep a wide berth around any vehicle that has its emergency lights on.
  • Traffic Jams: It is common for the 605 to slow to a stop near its many interchanges with other highways. Slowed or stopped traffic can result in devastating accidents. Drivers who are speeding, distracted, fatigued or under the influence may fail to adjust their speed to the new flow of traffic. Rear-end collisions at high-speeds can result in multiple-vehicle chain reaction crashes.
  • Dangerous Bridges: A Transportation for America study ranked California as the 18th worst in the country for deficient bridges. There are a number of deficient bridges connecting some of the busiest Los Angeles freeways, including Interstate 605.
  • Poor Roadway Conditions: On such a busy roadway, it only takes one large pothole for a multi-vehicle accident to occur. It is imperative that the governing body in charge of the roadway makes every effort to keep it properly maintained.
  • Dangerous Drivers: As is true with all California freeways, there are many careless and reckless drivers on the 605 at all times. Drivers who choose to speed or make unsafe lane changes put themselves and others in danger. Motorists attempting to use their phone can be equally as dangerous. Other forms of negligent behavior that can result in an accident includes failing to yield the right of way, driving while fatigued, tailgating and driving while under the influence.

Injuries and Damages

Sadly, it is common for life-changing injury accidents to occur along Interstate Route 605. Even with proper medical diagnosis and treatment, some victims of head, back and neck injuries may never fully recover. The resulting expenses for medical bills, tests, surgical procedures and hospitalization can be devastating for a family.

Serious injuries result in more than just medical expenses. Damages that may be claimed in such car accident cases include medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning potential, physical pain, mental anguish, loss of companionship and more.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“Great Lawfirm – My sister Kristen in Chicago made the recommendation. Everyone has been great. I really don't think anything could have been done better.”

by Melissa

“I could not recommend Bisnar & Chase highly enough! Now, I must be forthcoming and tell you that I am writing this review on behalf of my wonderful mother. You see, she's a mom, and therefor [sic] by nature is completely unable to do even the most simple of tasks on the internet. Like writing a a Yelp review. But we all love our moms don't we? Yes. We all love our moms (except Charles Manson), and would do anything to make sure they are protected and well taken care of. Upon referral from my mother's coworker, we contacted Bisnar & Chase. They had done a great job in this previous case and were located extremely close to both UCI and home, which made stopping by their office very convenient for my Mom. My Mom had been in an auto accident, nothing crazy but not a mere fender bender, and suffered what we thought to be some minor whiplash. Months later this was definitely not the case. Her client experience with the associates at Bisnar & Chase was so impressive that she raved to me about every time she heard anything from them. How thorough they were. How they listened better than I did (or something to that effect). How she liked Shannon and Mr. Bisnar and felt that they really had her best interests at heart. I honestly couldn't get her to shut up about them. But as a daughter that last part was all that I needed to hear to know that I we had found the right people and I could sleep easy at night knowing my Mom was in good hands. The Bisnar & Chase team really went above and beyond my family's expectations. And for that I am extremely grateful. If you live in the Newport Beach/Irvine/Costa Mesa/General Orange County area I would highly recommend Bisnar & Chase to both friends, and family.”

“My car accident happened in April. I called Bisnar Chase, and was able to get information that helped me deal with the insurance on my own. They didn't take my case, but Mary took my call both times I called; she was so very helpful!! I hope I don't need them again, but if I do, I know they'll help me. FIVE STARS!!”
