About Laguna Beach, CA

Aside from the winding roads along the Canyon, the city is full of distracting attractions. Laguna Beach is a seaside resort town located in Orange County, California. Right away, a visitor will notice his or attention drawn away by the breathtaking views.

Logo of Ehline Law Firm Personal Injury Attorneys, APLCThere are statues and signs everywhere. There are shops stacked on top of each other all vying for their next sale to a passerby. It is a famous artist’s community about 24 miles (39 km) southeast of the Santa Ana Civil Courthouse.

People in cars usually spot the statue of the bearded "Greeter" waving to passersby. There are vast open courtyards, flags, and signs everywhere along PCH. Laguna’s population was at 23,727 at the time of the 2000 census. And that does not include tourists and visitors, as discussed above.

The locale is famous for blue, sandy beaches, the Little Shrimp gay bar, and hotels. Hence, art galleries and art festivals are internationally renowned. It is so lovely and majestic here that many movies and TV shows are filmed along its sprawling oceanfront.

Of particular note, there is a constant stream of alcohol flowing. Inattentive and drunk drivers are a primary cause of severe crashes here.

Need Help With Accidents in Greater Laguna Beach?

Some Laguna Accidents We Help Resolve:

  • Dog Bites: Of particular interest, a rabid animal can cause amputation or disfigurement. Also, small children are at special risk for dog attacks. Off-leash dogs have attacked surfers and mom's pushing strollers at the beach too.
  • Nursing Home and Elderly Abuse: Laguna Woods is where Leisure World™ is located. This is a recreational care facility for seniors. In-home nurses and even crooked lawyers have abused senior citizens. Ehline does not tolerate nursing home abuse.

Need Help for Your Laguna Beach Motor Vehicle Accident?

Motor vehicle accidents include:

  • Motorcycle Wrecks: Michael Ehline is sympathetic to fallen motorcyclists. He is an avid enthusiast and rider himself. Michael even attends biker charities. Mike loves the freedom riding brings. But he is aware of the risks. This lawyer has been in motorcycle accidents himself. Thus, he knows all about the dark, windy roads in Laguna. He and our team know at night can mean death or severe injury. When other drivers don't pay attention, bikers die. In fact, ELFPI has helped many occupants and riders get justice.
  • Bicycle Accidents: Bicyclists riding on PCH have minuscule bike lanes. Try riding a bicycle in Laguna Canyon lately? It's a harrowing experience, to say the least. Cars seem to end and re-merge into traffic at odd locations along with cyclists. So there may be multiple defendants for changes in the roads, or poor maintenance. Also, parties to your case can include Caltrans and the city or county. The state may partially be at fault along with a private actor. The only way you know is with the help of qualified local attorneys.

Were You Hurt as a Passenger in an Auto?

Traversing Laguna requires an understanding that many drivers are tourist renting unfamiliar vehicles. And many more are Uber and Lyft drivers relying on a GPS that is not very good.

Of particular interest, there are often drivers from out of the area. The fact that the roads are circuitous adds to the risks of them losing control of their leased or rented car. There are also many shops and tourist destinations — couple this with the epidemic of texting while driving and distracting storefronts.

Now, do you see the risks? Obviously, car accidents are the leading type of case we help with for a reason.

And a ride through Crystal Cove may be all it takes for you to become an accident statistic too.

  • Big Rigs and Delivery Vehicles: There are only a few ways in and out of this town. There are many hotels, restaurants, and clubs off of the 73 Expressway, 55 Freeway and I 405. Pacific Coast Highway and Laguna Canyon Road have diesel truck traffic daily. Fast-moving delivery vehicles cater to the stores and shops from here all the way to the Port of Long Beach. Hence, often, they are rushed to get places quickly. These drivers have delivery deadlines to meet. The larger ones have glaring blind spots. As a result, a fatigued trucker could veer into the lane of a smaller vehicle. It's noteworthy that he or she could easily swerve onto the sidewalk. Therefore, defendant drivers could wipe out whole swaths of shoppers, joggers, or bicyclists.
What About the Risks of Uber and Municipal Bus Accidents?
  • Taxis: With the rise of Uber, local human transportation is becoming cheaper and more competitive. Unfortunately, many of these drivers are not that good. Hence, this means an increased risk of rear-enders or T-bone collisions. There are also other potential issues. So, for example, we sometimes help victims of taxi cab drivers. Examples of people we help are sexually assaulted females who were drinking and needed a lift in a taxi.
  • Bus Injuries: Some local bus drivers are not pleasant. We have represented people who thrown forward into the cab. Hence, in that case, the bus driver thought it was fun to slam on the brakes. Other times arrogant drivers run pedestrians over. But getting sued is not fun for the driver or his bus company.
  • Other Injuries: Did you suffer a broken arm, eye injury, spinal cord injury? We can probably help.

Do We Help Laguna Niguel Victims Too?

Yes, we do. Laguna Niguel is next door to Laguna Beach. It is a south Orange County city. Laguna Niguel's name comes from the Spanish word for the lagoon, and also “Nigueli.”

This was the name of a Juaneño Indian village previously located on the Aliso Creek.

Tourists who rent cars and are not familiar with the winding roads, get in wrecks often. Besides that, the streets are not well lit. Even locals lose control on the dark streets. There are also a lot of activities and nightclubs in this area.

DUI and car accident injuries are quite common. Experts know this is a recipe for a disaster when mixed with high speeds, or alcohol.

So What Sets Us Apart From Other Law Firms?

Most Frequently Asked Questions About Laguna Beach Traffic Accidents

Who are the Laguna Beach Traffic Collision Victim and Perpetrator Risk Groups?

  • Traffic statute violators. (aka "deviant drivers.")
  • Drivers with impairing medical conditions.
  • Impaired or intoxicated drivers.
  • Commercial vehicle drivers.
  • Accident repeaters.
  • Younger drivers.
  • Elderly drivers.

In addition to the above special risk groups most likely to cause an accident, there are seventy-two separate restrictions distinguished purposes of driver's license coding.

However, in some cases (SR 22 filings, provisional, or probationary operating licenses for example) the DMV or court zeros in on tailored limitations to achieve the specific balance needed to maintain public safety and the balanced needs of the citizen driver. 

How Was the CDS Study Data Obtained?

There are about 5,000 crashes per year involving all types of passenger cars, pickup trucks, and vans. Since 1979, the NHTSA has collected "Crash Data Statistics" ("CDS") on over 160,000 crashes. Then, its trained crash analysts gathered details from photographic evidence from many collision locations.

Evidence gathered from the data was obtained in many ways, including measurements of skid marks, locations of spilled oil, and fluids, shards of glass, plastic and other broken off vehicle parts, as well as bent guardrails. Investigators then located the autos involved, took pictures, and measured crash damage.

They even went so far as to identify interior areas that were hit by the people and things inside. Additionally, in our study below, we have used OTS and SWITRS data.

The Elderly Vehicle Operator Problem.

Laguna Woods in particular, with its many elders (median age of 78) is not just a prime area for elder abuse claims. Particularly relevant to travelers is that many elderly drivers take prescription drugs and drive.

Also, some older drivers may have undiagnosed dementia or another disease. So with these added dangers, there is no denying that Laguna can be a dangerous place.

So one might say, "operate a motor vehicle here at your own risk." Some reckless old drivers maybe should not be on the roads at all.

What is the Most Common Driving Restriction in California?

"Must wear corrective lenses," remains by far the most common precondition to legally driving in California. If your eyes need lenses, you can't drive without them.

However, sometimes, other licensing requirements to drive exist. As an example, the hearing officer can restrict driving to certain areas or times of the day. 

Also, special vehicular equipment may be necessary. As an example, these could include registration for unique mirrors or special hand controls for those lacking use of their legs. Also, select vehicles like vans may have unique features and equipment for people using assistive physical mechanisms.

So these could include wheelchairs and wheelchair ramps and even lift devices for people with artificial limbs. The DMV sets forth these administrative measures to maintain a balance between safety and necessity properly. 

As an example, older adults may be good to go for short trips around town, but won't be able to endure the stressful, high-density traffic on freeways and main junctions at night. But imagine needing to head over to the VA Hospital around 1:00 pm. That would be ok.

Or what if the elder needs to make a short trip to the grocery store near their home?  That's going to be also approved likely. So here, the Department can work to make sure the restriction serves the needs of the community as a whole.

What About Deviant drivers?

Sometimes drivers are out of control. Road rage, street racing, etc., all place the DMV on alert. But repeat traffic infractions are also indicators of deviant driving behavior.

Because of this, the DMV has guidelines to keep bad actors off the roads. In this case, a prima facie case for negligent operator exists when the driver's convictions total four or more points in a given 12 months period or six or more points in 24 months.

And if the driver accumulates eight or more points in 36 months, there is also a prima facie case for negligent operator status.

Class A or B drivers (heavy commercial vehicle) may appeal for the allowance of:

  • Six or more points for 12 months.
  • Eight or more points in 24 months.
  • Ten or more points in 36 months.

So due to the constant time on the roads, the Department can allow specially licensed drivers more points before those drivers become branded as "negligent operators." (Source)

What About the Safe Systems Approach to Laguna Beach Road Safety?

Ehline does not just advocate for money. ELFPI wants Laguna Beach to institute a Safe Systems approach to road safety. Remarkably, the safe systems approach is a relatively new idea when it comes to the roads. Compare the construction industry, for example.

As we know, falling objects are known threats to workers and bystanders. So here, the government will consider vulnerable users and make rules. (Ex: Safety hats and equipment.) So OSHA, as well as municipal inspectors, seek out risks in order to promulgate safety regulations and redundant safety systems.

Comparing roads, the TSA also looks for hot spots. Technology lane departure warnings and high-speed alerts. Redundancy ensures the availability of the system in case part of the system fails.

EX: Reflective painted lines but often in a dense coastal fog, drivers cannot see the paint's reflection. So the bumps are redundant.

Comparing autos, even before seatbelt laws, California required specific standards when it came to bumper strength and vehicle rigidity. Mainly it appeared these rules were skewed to reduce liability insurance claims and not to do with occupant safety.

But modernly, we see that an unrestrained occupant is a potentially vulnerable user, despite the strength of the vehicle's construction. Occupants can get thrown around like rag dolls during a collision.

Because of this, California passed seat-belt laws. And of course, things like helmets for bikers won't reduce a crash, but it reduces head injuries.

And as in construction, there is a cascading effect when signals lose connectivity. For example, when the power goes out on a job-site, or office building, emergency flashing lights can help reduce some risks associated with a total blackout.

So, for example, in traffic crashes, guardrails minimize failures of the vehicle leaving the lane or lane jumping. Ehline hopes to use these stats to help usher in a safe systems culture for vulnerable road users, along with fail-safe systems.

See the video about Safe Systems here.

DATA TABLE - LAGUNA BEACH DRIVERS IN FATAL AND INJURY COLLISIONS (DRIVERS AT FAULT BY SEX BY AGE)

FATAL TRAFFIC ACCIDENT ROADSIDE CANDLE LIGHT MEMORIAL

Top At Fault Fatal Laguna Beach Traffic Accident Risk Groups by Age and Gender:

  • Male 27 years old.

The above data chart reflects the raw data we used on the subject of traffic fatalities for the one year study period of 2018. It does not seem to be reliable because there was only one death reported during that time frame. This means we have no baseline to work with day, or week to week.

There were far more nonfatal accidents during this same time frame.

Because of this, below, we'll explore the raw data for nonfatal accidents to get a better baseline.

Top at Fault NON-Fatal Laguna Beach Traffic Accident Risk Groups by Age and Gender:

  • 20-year-old male (8 at-fault accidents.)
  • 21-year-old male (5 at-fault accidents.)
  • 60-64-year-old males (8 at-fault accidents combined.)

Females don't even make a list when compared to males. This could be for many reasons. For example, some women may be homemakers and not drive as much as their male counterparts.

Also important in this regard are the findings of social psychologists who have noted that the social emancipation of women in recent decades has barely influenced or enhanced the expressiveness of aggressive behavior in women, which is additional proof that the higher degree of masculine aggressiveness is, first of all, due to genetic factors. Sex differences predetermine, on a genetic level, the differences in aggressive behavior [Wilson, Herrnstein, 1985]. (Source.)

Science shows that men have higher levels of testosterone, which likely makes men take more risks while driving automobiles.

It does appear that as testosterone levels drop with the aging process, men become more docile and less risk-averse.

And this would tend to explain why older males have less reported accidents as a whole. But further traffic research needs to be conducted in the Laguna locale in particular.
