Experienced Car Accident Attorneys in Glendale, CA

Every year, over 80,000 people are injured or killed in auto collisions in Los Angeles County alone. In 2016, the number of traffic accidents in Los Angeles soared by nearly 20 percent from the previous year to 55,350. Additionally, 2017 saw a 22% increase in crash fatalities from the same period in 2016, where over 40,000 fatalities were reported within the city limits (with pedestrians comprising nearly half of those fatalities). As of 2018, Los Angeles had the highest rate of injury-causing and fatal traffic accidents in the nation.

Such accidents are often the result of recklessness or negligence on the part of another party. But while speeding is perhaps the most well known cause behind traffic accidents, other commonly cited causes can include:

  • Driving at night
  • Aggressive driving (i.e. road rage)
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Smoking while driving
  • Texting or speaking on a cell phone while driving
  • Lane-splitting
  • Fatigued driving
  • Failing to merge and yield properly
  • Following too closely

Living in the Los Angeles area means you are at a greater risk of experiencing an auto accident, regardless of whether or not you are a safe and cautious driver. If you have been injured in an auto accident, you may have multiple concerns over medical expenses, long or short-term disability and wage losses stemming from an inability to work, having to endure the arduous process of negotiating a settlement with insurance companies, and costly medical bills from healthcare providers. You are not alone.

Car Accident Statistics for California Drivers

One of the most common questions we receive is, “How many people die in car accidents throughout the United States of America each year?” Below we’ll identify some key car accident statistics for the U.S. as well as abroad.

  • In 2019, the United States experienced 38,800 car accident fatalities. That was a 2% reduction from 2018, when 39,404 people were killed in American auto collisions. Year-by-year, 40,327 people were killed in 2017 motor vehicle collisions, and 34,439 police-reported fatal car accidents occurred in 2016 (representing a 5.8% increase from 2015).

What Should I Do If
I’m Involved in an Auto Accident?

For many accident victims, their first instinct is to contact an insurance company, and quickly accept whatever compensation may be offered. Depending on your circumstances, this can be a mistake on multiple levels. Firstly, you must realize that the insurance companies do not act on behalf of you or have your best interests in mind. As such, their initial compensation offer can frequently be disproportionate to the full amount of damages to which you are entitled. In other words, their offer can be unfair and inadequate, often leaving you with unpaid bills in addition to the cost of lasting emotional and psychological trauma. Insurance companies are interested in one thing: protecting themselves. They are not concerned with you, the victim. This is why your first step after enduring an accident should be to contact an experienced and qualified car accident attorney.

Car accident attorneys, such as the team at Dordulian Law Group, are experts at negotiating the highest possible settlement commensurate with your injuries. We present abstract factors such as pain and suffering, and changes to your quality of life when representing you in court, which can significantly affect the amount of your settlement. Our goal is to ensure that you are not left with outstanding bills for medical expenses or lost wages, and that you receive appropriate compensation on top of those damages.

Do Not Accept Insurance Compensation Without Contacting Us First!

The Dordulian Law Group has decades of experience navigating insurance and liability law. We have successfully secured settlements in excess of $100 million for our clients. Given our proven track record, we are confident that our knowledge and dedication will lead to you receiving the compensation you truly deserve, rather than the compensation the insurance company feels you deserve. A car accident can be a harrowing experience, which is why you need an advocate to take on the burden of filing your claim, negotiating the cost of your medical expenses (an area of expertise that is often overlooked when one is considering hiring a car accident attorney), and securing a significant settlement.
