An Intriguing Spike in Inglewood Car Accidents

Inglewood lies just to the southwest of Santa Monica in the greater Los Angeles area. The city has a relatively low occurrence of car accidents and injuries compared to the area around it, but the city did have two surprising years in 2011 and 2012 when car accidents somehow tripled their normal going from a yearly average of 300 to an average of 950 for those two years. In these years, pedestrian accidents seemed to spike the most, resulting in 48 and 60 accidents per year, respectively, as opposed to 7 and 3 in 2013 and 2014. Fortunately, the yearly average of car accident deaths did not increase with any statistical significance in these 2 years.

9% of all accidents are from DUIs

In Inglewood, instances of drunk driving are actually lower than surrounding cities, but drunk drivers are still 3.5 times more likely to be in a car accident where someone is killed. For all car accidents since 2009, Inglewood has had a accident fatality rate of about .8%, or about 1 death in every 115 accidents. For drunk drivers, this number is 1 death in every 29 accidents – meaning that DUIs are still much more likely to lead to a traffic fatality. Statistically, the most frequent DUI incidents occur at 8-10pm, and then again at 2am on Inglewood streets.

Pitfalls to Avoid as an Inglewood Injury Victim

Information Release Forms

Car accidents can be traumatizing enough without being further victimized by insurance companies, which is why Bisnar Chase warns victims to consult them before signing any forms given them by insurance companies. Among the most onerous are information release forms, which grant insurance companies permission to dig up virtually every file from your past. Even documents that have nothing to do with your accident -- like all medical records, school and employment records, your personnel files, and virtually every piece of information about you that has ever been documented. Insurance companies have dug up STD records, abortions, and other sensitive, private information. Occasionally, insurance companies will use this information as leverage to make you accept a reduced settlement.

Recorded Statements

Another thing insurance companies like to have is your recorded statement. Car accident lawyers know that all too often what you say can be twisted and taken out of context later to undermine your case. Having a car accident lawyer with you during these recording sessions and interrogations protects you from being harassed, asked premature, prejudicial or irrelevant questions, or coaxed into saying something that can be used against you later in court.

Fighting for Inglewood Clients

The more you know about how insurance companies operate, the more you'll see why consulting - and retaining if necessary - a qualified Inglewood accident lawyer can be so important. Bisnar Chase knows how difficult it can be to endure a car accident and be injured. If you are unable to work and have medical bills to pay it can be extremely stressful if you don’t know if you’re going to get a good settlement from the insurance company. We can help shoulder that burden! We know how to deal with insurance companies and with negligent parties so that you can get the best compensation possible.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“Like Danielle, I have been waiting a long time to review Bisnar Chase too. My review is a little different, however. I have only experienced a friendly staff (especially the receptionist Loraine) that treats everyone of their clients like they are movie stars. If I had a friend that was in an accident these guys would be the first people I would send them to.”

“I am very pleased with the results this law firm obtained for me. Their professionalism, attentiveness and friendliness was outstanding. They listened to me, answered my questions, advised me and kept me informed. A truck hit my car causing me serious injuries, medical bills, lost time from work and damaged to my car. They took care of everything wonderfully. They helped with getting my car repaired and a rental car. They helped me get medical help. They got my doctor bills paid, kept me from having to go to court and obtained a settlement for me beyond my expectations. Four of my family members have used these guys and had equally good experiences. One of my relatives consulted with them and got great advise about handling her matter. Mr. Bisnar told her she didn't need an attorney and told her how to handle it. She couldn't believe the compassion and great advise, especially without a fee. Mr. Bisnar helped my brother-in-law get a multiple six-figure recovery in an employment law dispute. Starting with the receptionist, my paralegal, the paralegal supervisor, Mrs. De La Torre, Mrs. Barker and Mr. Bisnar himself, everyone was helpful, friendly and professional. It was a refreshing experience after a bad accident. They send me a birthday card with a Baskin Robins gift certificate every year. In January they send me chocolate dipped fortune cookies. They have even offered me Lakers' tickets. They certainly didn't forget me after my case was done.”

“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.”
