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

“INTEGRITY, CONFIDENCE AND THOROUGHNESS-THIS FIRM IS AMAZING! when my German Shepherd was falsely accused of biting a child, I thought, who better than the best personal injury attorney out there to ask for advise? Researched best attorneys in OC for dog bites, and was directed to the law firm of Bisnar and Chase. To say I was astounded at the depth of the response I received to my online enquiry is an understatement.
Upfront they said they weren't defense attorneys, but (after winning numerous severe dog bite cases over the years) they took the time to line item their opinion of how events would unfold (putting my mind at ease). In this day and age, the fact they took the time out of their busy day to respond so thoroughly to a cry for help ( inwhich they had absolutely nothing to gain), speaks volumns about the integrity of this firm. I wouldn't hesitate to use them, or refer them.”
