Injuries and Accidents in Newport Beach

Known for its idyllic beaches, pounding surf and glamorous high-end lifestyle, Newport Beach may seem like a playground for the country's well-to-do. However, just like in any playground, serious accidents leading to grave personal injuries can and do occur. Enlisting the help of a car accident lawyer in Newport Beach can be one of the most important decisions you make. The right personal injury attorneys in Newport Beach can mean the difference between making or breaking your case.

The city is considered one of the wealthiest communities in the country, but any Newport Beach personal injury lawyer will tell you that money offers feeble protection against accidents. In fact, many Newport Beach residents are injured in car accidents, dog attacks, fires, and workplace accidents every day.

According to the California Highway Patrol, 513 people were injured in Newport Beach car accidents in 2007. The majority of all car accidents in Newport Beach are caused by drunk drivers, officials have said.

"Victims of drunk drivers have suffered tragically in Newport Beach car accidents," noted John Bisnar, a top Newport Beach personal injury attorney. "In a city of high-end sports cars, many drivers like to 'roll the dice' and drive while drunk. In mid 2000, Newport Beach was ranked highest in its state population category of 50,000-100,000 people for DUI collisions. In 2006, almost a third of all those arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol were Newport Beach residents."

A car accident attorney of Newport Beach knows all too well the dangers that many residents face. That's why it is important to call upon one if you have been the victim of a car accident. Without the aid of a car accident attorney Newport Beach, the results of your case can suffer.

Surfers, Swimmers And Divers Suffer Personal Injuries in Newport Beaches

However, it is not only Newport Beach's roads that can dangerous. Its famous beaches also have their fair share of stories of people suffering accident injuries while surfing, diving or even simply swimming near the shore.

In April 2009, a surfer suffered traumatic injuries at Crystal Cove State Park while in July 2009, a body surfer was killed after being pummeled by 20-foot-waves at the Wedge. In March 2008 meantime, a 17-year old boy drowned in rough waters, after which his family claimed that the city had failed to provide adequate warning of dangerous conditions.

In fact, the OC Register reported that 14 people have died at the beach in Newport in the past ten years. Countless others have been injured, suffering everything from brain damage to spinal injuries. Lifeguards are called to assist in over 6,000 cases every year at the city's beaches, said Jim Turner, Newport's lifeguard battalion chief.

Dog Attacks in Newport Beach

Newport Beach's streets and beaches are not the only places where one must be on-guard against accidents. A less common, but certainly no less dangerous type of personal injury are dog attacks.

In May 2009, a two-year-old boy was attacked by a German Shepherd. The dog had been left unattended by its owner and the toddler attempted to pet the animal. The boy suffered serious facial injuries as a result of the dog attack, which required many stitches to close.

Newport City Measures Help Cut Down On Personal Injuries

Statistics show that sadly, many children have been mauled and even killed by dogs improperly leashed, abused and/or trained to attack. From 1979 to 1996, there were 154 fatal dog attacks reported in Newport Beach. More than half of all fatal attacks in the city involved Pit Bulls.

Newport Beach officials have taken note of the many accidents that can and have happened in the city and have taken the necessary measures to minimize personal injuries to its residents. For example, the city has imposed a number of restrictions on dog owners and their Fire Department has several programs aimed at providing reliable and speedy safety services to the public.
