San Fernando Valley Injuries

San Fernando Valley is one of Southern California's most urbanized areas. Any personal injury lawyer will tell you that this means more car, train and pedestrian accidents to worry about.

Safety officials say that many victims of car accidents in San Fernando Valley include children, especially as summer ends and thousands of students return to the city's many schools. According to safety officials, 25 to 30 children are injured in San Fernando Valley car accidents near schools every year. While the numbers may seem low, the death of any child while on the way to school is one too many.

Safety officials attribute this to many parents overestimating their kids' ability to handle themselves on streets. Studies show that children ages 5 to 9 are the most vulnerable to personal injuries and death as a result of car accidents. Experts say that children cannot easily judge a car's speed and distance and assume that if they can see a car, then the driver must be able to see them.

Studies also show that elementary school aged children can get killed by vehicles going up to 25 mph. Officials have taken this into consideration when posting speed limits around schools. Local police say that San Fernando Valley has the worst record when it comes to speeding-related car accidents.

Because there are so many injuries and fatalities in this area, many health related websites have set up grief counseling for local residents. From Pasadena to Hollywood, Los Angeles therapy groups have been created to help injury victims.

Most Injuries Occur On 20 San Fernando Valley Streets

Aside from roads near schools, personal injury attorneys are also disturbed to find that a high proportion of car and pedestrian accidents seem to take place in select areas of the suburb. Recent studies showed that in the last three years, at least 90 people have been killed on just 20 SFV Streets.

These most dangerous streets include Laurel Canyon Boulevard, Burbank Boulevard and Nordhoff Street. Police officials reported that Laurel Canyon saw 11 deaths while Burbank had 10 fatal car collisions. Nordhoff street, on the other hand, had seven fatalities.

Officials have taken the statistics into consideration and are taking the appropriate measures to make the city's streets safer. For example, motorcycle officers are equipped with laser-sensor devices which they say are more effective than radar guns in apprehending speeding drivers. They have even gone undercover to arrest reckless drivers in areas where pedestrian signs are clearly visible.

Why Safety Is A Big Concern For Motorcycles

With the heavy traffic from large commercial trucks, buses and cars, motorcycle safety is a big concern for city officials as well as residents. Biker's are often injured by large trucks, cars, and buses from lack of visibility. Motorcycle enthusiasts need to pay careful attention to all surrounding traffic and be proactive in their own safety. San Fernando Valley is heavily traveled, and in recent years there has been a steady increase in motorcycle accidents and fatalities. Many of them have been hit and run cases that resulted in serious injury.

Trains Reveal Safety Issues As Well

In early 2015, a man driving his pickup truck got stuck on the rails of the Metrolink and ultimately injured 30 people, 4 critically. This crossing has been the scene of many crashes over the years. The city's financial issues continue to be a problem in implementing more safety options like a bridge that would separate the train crossing from traffic.

“I wanted to wait to put this up until I receive my check. I had a great experience with this firm. My attorney did a great job and I had a great result. I dont know of they are different than they used to be, but they were exactly what I was looking for.”

“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!”
