What are Some Statistical Dangers of Driving In Long Beach?
If you travel here, there is a statistical likelihood of a traffic wreck.
In the City of Long Beach in 2009, 29 people died as the result of horrific traffic accidents. (Source.)
Faulty traffic signal phasing near the Long Beach Airport at Signal Hill increased the chances of these wrecks.
News stories have pointed out many bad wrecks in Long Beach:
South of Del Amo Boulevard by the Lakewood locale.
The I-605 San Gabriel River Freeway is a place where many accidents happen. Right there is a merge to I-405 San Diego Freeway that bottlenecks passenger cars with big rigs.
The same goes for Palm Beach near the intersection of Ocean Boulevard and Shoreline Drive. Even drivers paying careful attention to driving and surrounding vehicles may not be safe. So getting in an automobile collision is sometimes unavoidable as you can see now, right?
Who is Long Beach Lawyer Michael Ehline?
First of all, he was a Marine. So you know he is aggressive. Michael Ehline has garnered continuous successful outcomes for people injured in the city since passing the bar exam in 2005.
Because of this, Michael is a qualified vehicular accident attorney. Mike and his team will provide you with the very best legal representation.
Also, the Ehline Law Firm has a winning history of recovering the most compensation. This respected law firm has done so in thousands of personal injury cases. Many satisfied clients were in cases involving car collisions. Our "Yelp!" and Google reviews buttress this claim.
Retaining the Services of a Car Accident Lawyer – Why is Timing is Everything?
Hiring a competent representative is impossible unless you do it the right away. Many uneducated or ill-advised victims get suckered into going it alone by the car insurance adjuster.
Such people like you often become faced with the quagmire of dealing with a two-faced insurance company.
WARNING:Unrepresented plaintiffs are often guilty of failing to seek proper medical care timely.
Thus, the case becomes almost worthless.
A jury or insurance adjuster just won't take your case seriously unless you: 1. got a police report and; 2. took an ambulance to the hospital, and documented your injuries.
The moral of the story is, don't sabotage your case. Do your research and learn the ropes to protect your case.
Why Must You Not Blow the Time Limitations Statute?
Great legal advocates will file court documents before the statute of limitations runs out. Timing is more important than ever. Some cases, such as those against the City of Long Beach may have a six-month time constraint, while others against private actors may allow you more time to sue.
James and Michael are counsel who looks at cases with a sense of urgency so you can sleep well at night and turn your troubles over to ELFPI.
Beyond that, these seasoned attorneys will investigate every element of your car crash.
ELFPI will preserve critical evidence that could be lost or damaged; they will interview witnesses before their memories fade.
How Does ELFPI Deal With Your Long Beach Car Accident Claims?
Most car smash-ups will settle through skilled negotiations of a lawyer. If your case is not resolved, there is also arbitration or mediation in underinsured and uninsured motorist claims without the need to go into court.
But sometimes there are some cases where an adequate settlement simply cannot happen. Then it is necessary to take the lawsuit to trial. In these cases, your legal expert identifies all the parties potentially responsible. Only then will a trained attorney name them in the suit.
There is often more than one negligent party at fault in a traffic accident. Therefore, more compensation could be available due to more deep pockets. But understanding the pulse and heartbeat of Long Beach is necessary for a legal expert.
The Many Potential Defendants
The city also has a dilapidated infrastructure with big trucks everywhere. Thus, dangerous curbs, potholes, and sharp shoulders are all causes of car wrecks. So the city, state or county of Los Angeles are all possible defendants.
Defendants may include:
Other drivers involved,
Private tour bus companies,
Public municipal bus operators,
The owners of the vehicles, if different from the driver,
Employers of drivers who were driving as a duty of their employment,
Automobile manufacturers, when there is a poor design or defective part that contributed to the accident.
Auto mechanics, when there are inadequate repairs that cause or contribute to the crash,
Government entities when they have improperly cared for a roadway that causes or contributes to a collision.
Thus, an auto-related trauma victim may be able to sue parties other than the at-fault motor vehicle driver. Only a great lawyer can track down those people potentially liable for a person's car accident damages.
In the event the other party is under-insured or uninsured, you may be able to file a claim with your insurance company.
The insurance company will look out for their interests alone.
So if you feel you deserve more, your lawyer might advise you to bring a lawsuit.
What Is My “Recovery” in a Long Beach Car Accident Case?
Recovery is another way of saying how much "money" you will get for your accident. When a settlement is not able to be negotiated, the case usually goes to court. Sometimes a judge or jury will award damages to the victim. Other times, you may get nothing. Getting nothing for your case is not a functional recovery.
What you must know is that your recovery award is designed to compensate the financial and other intangible losses resulting from your auto accident.
Your recovery can include:
Medical care expenses
Assisted living services
Reduced or loss of future income
Also, if your loved one dies in the crash, your family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Lawyers file these death claims lawsuits to recover damages for losses families suffered. The damages awarded are for things like your loss of consortium and lost earnings the decedent was bringing to your family.
Hence, things like loss of love and companionship are compensable damages.
Survival Action Distinguished
Often, the estate of the victim may be entitled to file a legal action for compensation. Claims are on behalf of the heirs. This claim is called a "survival action." (Learn more about Survival Actions Here.)
