But when someone gets hurt in the Marina, they need to identify and sue the right parties. Otherwise, you're spinning your wheels and could end up with a lot less money, or no recovery at all. So if the negligence of someone else was the cause of your injuries, Ehline Law Firm is ready to take over your case right now.

Since Michael Ehline has lived in the Marina, he has had at least 100 close calls while walking to the Venice Beach pier with his wife and kids.

What are Some Results of Bad Marina del Rey Accidents?
If a driver does not pay attention, he or she could lose control of the car, or for example, the vehicle can swerve. An out of control car can hit a person or a fixed object. The negative results are wide-ranging and often quite tragic.
If a crash happens, your injuries can include:
- Brain injury
- Broken bones
- Wrongful Death
- Other Catastrophic Injuries
If a terrible accident takes place, the negligent person becomes the defendant in a tort claim.
- Torts are harmful to a person’s body or mind.
Most of all, we take these types of cases. Severe injuries can result in long-term issues. Although insurance adjusters may say most of these claims spring from mere soft tissue damage, they can still affect mobility or ability to work. Plus, some soft tissue cases can involve a slipped disc, so these are by no means insignificant.
In any event, significant mental distress can stay with you, the plaintiff, for life. And this is why a lawyer is so important in preserving your rights as a plaintiff, with sound medical and legal evidence.
Who is/are the plaintiff(s)?
- Plaintiffs include you, and anyone else who can legally be a party to the potential lawsuit.
- At times the plaintiff bears partial fault.
Either way, the defendant must pay their fair share. So they are on the hook for your past, present, and future wages. And they have to cover damages like pain and suffering.
Most of all, injuries in Marina del Rey can severely impact you or a loved one. If faced with a severe damage, you may have questions. Above all, you could get confronted with major financial problems.
- For example, who will pay for your medical bills or your lost wages?
- How will you pay the damage to your motorized vehicle?
When you get faced with so many issues, you need to get your affairs in order; you may think you know the answers. But make sure that you genuinely know your legal rights before you proceed.
To do that, you get help from the best injury lawyers in Marina del Rey.
Why Not Discover the Ehline Difference for your Accident Case?
Attorney Michael Ehline lived Marina del Rey starting in the year 2002. Also, Ehline is among the few expert lawyers doing business in the Marina. Michael has received honors from the Circle of Legal Trust. Also, he was accepted into Personal Injury Warriors.
Also, residents and businesses have seen the horrendous expansion of SR-90. Michael has also seen the new multilevel apartment complexes pop up, but with no way to handle the influx of new vehicle traffic. People are now packed in like sardines. Also, an increase in bicycle accidents has made the Marina into a no go zone for many riders. And things got rough with all the traffic safety issues. And obviously, it is all related to overpopulation and construction. Ehline says this is all from adverse decisions by state and local governments.
- Because of his experiences as a victim, he has compassion.
- Most of all, he is an expert at helping victims get insurance benefits.
- So his curses have now become your blessings.

Ehline Law and attorneys have recovered over $100 million for clients.
These were verdicts and settlements. Michael’s experience in MDR and the courtroom speaks for itself. He knows the locality like the back of his hand. And he also knows the potential dangers. He also knows the courts and insurance adjusters.
And he understands their behaviors. So this helps both in and out of the courtroom. Call him today for a free consultation at (310) 331-8775.
Local Marina del Rey Negligence Attorneys
Marina del Rey is an unincorporated seaside community in So Cal. In 2010 it had 8,866 residents. But expansion since then has increased traffic accidents.
- Boating and dockside accidents make MDR different.
- MDR is the largest human-made small craft harbor in California.
So are a lot of people on foot perusing? And that means quite a few crosswalk accidents take place along the docks.
- Naturally, alcohol plays a role in boaters crashing or sinking. The city has 19 marinas and has the capacity for 5,300 boats.
- The potential for tripping and falling while boarding remains significant.
This fighting lawyer enjoys the Water Taxi service. But the threat of unsupervised children drowning is real.
Where are the Many Places You Could Be Injured in the Marina?
Accidents are common in Marina del Rey. The city has become famous for hit and run accidents. The marina hosts home to popular parks such as Mother’s Beach that rests next to the crowded Cheesecake Factory™, with its valet parking.
But Mother's Beach is operated by the LA County Department of Beaches and Harbors. So if there is a negligently obtained injury here, it can become tricky knowing who and how to sue within the relevant statutory period.
Most of all, this beautiful marina has harbor viewing areas, picnic tables, and pavilions. In any event, the place gets packed with lots of action during holidays and on the weekends.
Of particular concern, the roadways leading to these attractions include the Marina Expressway. And this traffic way includes CA State Route 90. But since the road expansion, Admiralty Way is always congested. And busy roads statistically lead to an increase in roadway accidents.

Making sure that you file before the statute of limitations is vital. In most cases, it is less than two years from the accident or death.
- But if it is a claim against a government agency, the limit is six months.
- If the statute of limitations has run out, the injured party cannot file. So the plaintiff loses.
You can see it is unwise to wait for an extended period. Better to consult an injury attorney.
Because by waiting:
- Evidence can deteriorate.
- Witness memories can fade.
What About Tolling of the Statute?
Sometimes the statute may be tolled. Toxic exposure cases are an example. But the only way to know is from top personal injury attorneys. However, any delay could substantially harm your chances.
