San Fernando Valley Car Accident Lawyer

A seasoned San Fernando Valley car accident attorney knows that car accidents occur with disturbing regularity in San Fernando Valley, California. This mega suburb of six separate cities has more than its share of accident-prone roads, as well as speeding drivers, impaired motorists and red-light scofflaws. But before addressing the dos and don'ts after a car crash, a glance at accident statistics may be in order.

Car Accidents in San Fernando Valley Point to Deadly Streets

A car accident study showed that a total of 90 people have been killed on 20 of San Fernando Valley's deadliest streets. Los Angeles Police Department reports revealed a disproportionate number of deaths occurred on Laurel Canyon Boulevard, Burbank Boulevard and Nordhoff Street. Car collisions on these streets also seriously injured 74 people. Ventura Boulevard was also high on the list with six deaths and 45 serious injuries.

Important Dos and Don'ts, Should You Survive a Car Accident

Knowledgeable San Fernando Valley accident lawyers warn that the lethal roads and intersections in San Fernando Valley can significantly increase your chances of suffering a car accident. "If you survive a car crash, you must provide reasonable assistance to those who are injured," advises John Bisnar. "You must remain at the scene, call an ambulance, and if you are trained in first aid and emergency procedures, you should render aid and, if possible, transport those injured to a doctor or hospital."

If you don't know first-aid procedures, do not move an injured person. This could worsen their injuries. Skilled San Fernando Valley car collision lawyers will tell you that the only time you should move a person is if they are in danger of being struck by traffic, in or near a burning car or one that's about to catch on fire.

In addition, you should try to alert other motorists of the accident to prevent further collisions and/or injuries. You can use flares on the road, but only if gasoline or other flammable fluids are not nearby. You should also activate your car's hazard lights and lift the engine hood to warn those approaching that an accident has occurred.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“I have used Bisnar and Chase twice now, both for car accidents. Each time I received a fair settlement and honestly received more than I expected. The entire team of Bisnar and Chase were professional, courteous and friendly. The paralegals there are top notch! I cannot express enough how much I appreciated the constant communication from them and how they explained things I didn't understand in such a way that I could.
Will I ever use them again? I only hope not to get into another car accident ever so that I don't have to, but I will definitely use them if I do (knock on wood I don't). I highly recommend Bisnar and Chase if you are considering hiring a lawyer for an automobile accident.”

“I went to them from a recommendation from my tax attorney. They have a good rap, and they talk the talk, so far they have walked the walk. I will update after the court case happens. The communication is fantastic, my case isn't worth a lot, but it would appear like they enjoy their work, rather than trying to leech out my money. They don't bill me for every phone call, which is nice!! I would recommend them as well, very professional and efficient.”

“We received an email from A.G. Edwards stating they have received the settlement check from Nissan. Once again, I cannot begin to articulate our gratitude to the Bisnar Chase staff - we are so very thankful for all you have done for Josh. As parents, Charlotte and I can rest in peace, when that day comes, knowing that Josh's needs have been taken care of, and his financial future is in good hands with sound financial planners at A.G. Edwards. On December 17, 2003 we received a call from the paramedics stating that Josh and Lisa had been in a severe accident, and we needed to meet them at the emergency room. I remember telling God that I can deal with missing limbs because they can be replaced, but please do not take him from us. A month later we met with members of your staff for the first time, Josh had a traumatic brain injury and his future was looking pretty bleak; we had no idea where he would be eighteen months later. All we could think of at the time was that our son's future, his goals, and dreams had been taken from him so abruptly. As time passed, Josh continued to improve and he began his journey of recovery. Many have been involved in this process, and you and your staff have been an integral part of Josh's recovery, and we will be forever grateful. God has brought so many people into our lives, and we are so very blessed. Numerous emails were sent to Personal Injury Attorney's. John...you were on a ski trip at Big Bear with your family, and you were the only Personal Injury Attorney to respond - I believe this was divine intervention. Josh has a professor from Mt. San Jacinto College who has taken him "under his wing," and is showing him other career possibilities. John, the future looks good for Josh - thank you!”
