An experienced La Palma injury attorney will tell you that if you are injured in a car crash in La Palma, you should consult a lawyer who is familiar with La Palma traffic and its city accident statistics.
As an example, smart La Palma lawyers know that in 2006, 63 people were injured in La Palma car crashes. Specifically, city car accidents resulted in injuries to two pedestrians, five bicyclists and two motorcyclists. Drunk drivers were also responsible for a number of serious car collisions--including eight injuries.
The How and Why of La Palma Car Accidents
"The most skilled La Palma car accident lawyers use local traffic hazards and accident statistics to help evaluate why and how an accident occurred," noted John Bisnar. "If a client were injured in a car collision along heavily traveled La Palma Avenue--which extends east of Weir Canyon Road to Lakewood Drive--experienced La Palma lawyers would try to determine if any traffic problems exist that might have caused the accident. They would search for evidence of poor lighting or road design, faulty traffic-control signals or improper signage."
For car accidents that happened in the neighborhood of St. Anthony's Claret Parish, knowledgeable lawyers would be aware of residents' problems in backing out of their driveways onto La Palma Avenue. They would also be aware of resident's complaints about speeding cars and the safety of children walking to school. La Palma car collision lawyers would study earlier accidents that occurred here. Skilled La Palma car collision lawyers would utilize these accident statistics and traffic hazards when preparing a case to help ensure that their clients are fairly compensated for their injuries and losses.
Similarly, car accidents that have injured clients at the intersection of La Palma Avenue and Walker Street would be carefully studied, particularly since red-light scofflaws had driven the city to install red-light cameras at this location.
Likewise, clients injured in a car crash on La Palma Avenue from Moody Street to Denni Street would prompt car accident lawyers to consider why motorists were allowed to make unsafe U-turns there, and why the city finally installed landscaped medians there to end this activity.
