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 don’t even know where to start, because I really wanted to write this recommendation even if there was no star or rating to be given! My daughter and I were in a bad car accident in 2011. She received a broke jaw, broken pelvic, broken arm, and a ruptured ear drum. I prayed to the lord while I was in ICU to guide me and send me to the right attorney that would help me and my daughter and not just look at us as a monetary opportunity. After much research I choose Bisnar Chase.
After spending 2 months in the ICU, we were in a long recovery process. Learning to walk, to eat due to wire shut for months! Back to the basic all over again… 4 years later it just came to an end! I tell you I have 2 different paralegals assisting me but Colleen Cadogan was the best I had this past year… This lady, emailed me, called me, send me words of encouragement almost every week! When I least expect it and I had a horrible day or had many questions and concerns she was there! As the paralegal doing her job, but also as a human being, a mother, a wife….just genuinely concern for my daughter and I. As the case came to a close….I will always remember the team of professionals and I would recommended Bisnar Chase to anyone….and be patient, patience”

“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.”
