Los Angeles Car Accident Attorney


I am attorney Michael Ehline of Ehline Law Firm Personal Injury Attorneys, APLC. I am among the most respected and successful lawyers in Los Angeles. Also, I am known for being highly aggressive, with a "can-do attitude." Maybe it's because I am an inactive, U.S. Marine veteran.
US DOT and Michael Ehline - Los Angeles car accident lawyer.

Whatever the reasons are for my superior reputation, below, I am going to discuss my important work representing victims as a Los Angeles car accident attorney. Next, I will give some tips and legal procedures to help you and your loved ones get superior results after they get in a vehicle wreck in Greater L.A.

To begin with, hundreds of thousands of people riding in motorized vehicles get into car crashes every year in the sprawling Greater Los Angeles, California area. But only the most fortunate car accident victims tend to remain unscathed and with only minor vehicle damage. But sadly, lots of folks weren't so lucky and were hurt. Whether you were in a Los Angeles car accident yesterday, or you lost a loved one in a crash last year, you will need legal help.

So the goal of Ehline Law's lawyers is to hold those who caused your wreck monetarily liable for your terrible injuries or fatal losses. But beware, if an insurance adjuster already contacted you, be sure to watch this video about insurance adjusters or read our article on how to successfully navigate the auto insurance claims process.

Our superior, aggressive attorneys have helped thousands of people in collisions like you obtain a sizeable monetary settlement or jury award. First, let's go over a few definitions to help you understand what to do next, ok?

What Exactly is a Car "Accident"?

A car accident is a crash involving an automobile versus a fixed or moving object. So, for example, these objects could be an unrepaired pothole, downed power-poles, buildings, and even pedestrians at a bus stop. But often, these objects are other motor vehicles sharing the lanes or peddle powered conveyances like scooters, and bicycles. Of particular interest, many hidden factors within a driver's control can increase the risk of an auto collision.

For example, a driver can use logic and common sense when negotiating traffic in wet weather (rain, hail, or snow), or other road hazards (objects blocking roadways, poor road maintenance, potholes, etc.). But when another motor vehicle operator fails to do so, a car accident will usually occur. And range in severity in a crash like that can range from minor to major. However, the common thing is that all motor vehicle collisions can cause injuries.

Sadly, sometimes these mishaps kill. So if you find yourself in a traffic accident, you must take care of yourself. Likewise, you must fight against the negative impact the wreck will have on your lifestyle. A significant first step in protecting your life and finances is hiring an expert car accident attorney. 

Here are a few of our excellent car accident reviews written by happy past clients for whom we fought.

Because of this, we produce a constant stream of above-average results. We’re a small boutique Los Angeles firm with significant effects. But this is only part of what sets us apart.

We Focus on You!

  • Personal Injury Win - VerdictPost-accident, we focus solely on getting you, the victim, your due payment. We strive to keep our clients in the loop. And we listen to your concerns with great interest. Also, we offer the comfort of constant feedback following your accident.

In particular, we answer your related questions in a timely fashion by utilizing several different forms of communication (email, telephone, in-person, etc.). Not only do we care about your case’s progress, but also your progress with any physical therapy or pain management.

  • Personal Injury Win - VerdictAs soon as you call, we will go over the different courses of action and clarify possible ways we can help. Our service includes finding you the right physician and therapist and, of course, giving you the highest quality of legal guidance. Also, our no-obligation phone consult comes free of charge. But our lawyers must understand your case.

You feeling rushed for time to avoid costs is not the way to start. So we let you heal up while we find the party who is a fault. Above all, we make sure those who breach their “social contract” of driving safely pay for your damages.

Evidence Gathering in an L.A. Car Accident Case.

  • Personal Injury Win - VerdictWe can interview witnesses, gather photographs and measurements at the crash site — even the design of a car, the vehicle's traveling speed, and the skill of the driver all matter. Ehline Law Firm also evaluates road conditions and the surrounding environment to determine who to sue. We dig in deep and look at people’s habits and past conduct.

Every little detail plays a role in your case. So our lawyers make sure to do the proper research to make that winning argument. Also, we can prepare affidavits for you and other percipient witnesses to sign to lock-in testimony and memories. These are all essential steps our dedicated staff will take to build compelling evidence to win your case.

Great accident lawyers will work your case file and will work out a much larger payout than you could negotiate yourself. People with no lawyers receive no respect from bad insurance adjusters and will take advantage of your lack of knowledge.

Often victims try to represent themselves in the court of law because they believe they can get the most money by cutting out an attorney’s fee. However, studies prove that car accident victims with legal help get the most money. (Source).

We assist clients in getting compensation for:

  • Scrapes
  • Scratches

  • Whiplash
  • Migraines
  • Hairline Fractures
  • Aching Joints
  • Edema and Swollen Joints
  • Facet Joint Syndrome
  • Open cuts and wound needing stitches
  • Compound fractures. Things like broken femurs, broken ankles, or a cracked pelvis
  • Hemorrhaging
  • Slipped Disk
  • Cracked ribs
  • Deflated or collapsed lungs
  • Cracked or fractured skulls

After that collision, even seemingly minor injuries can conflate into life-threatening conditions. So, for this reason, after being jostled in a traffic crash, you must get medically stabilized. You must seek professional emergency care to rule out permanent physical injuries.

As noted above, failure to get to the E.R. right away can leave your case flailing in the wind. So don't waste time.
