COLLISION WITH MINOR PROPERTY DAMAGE
LANE CHANGE ACCIDENT ON FREEWAY
As auto accident attorneys, we focus on helping victims that have been injured in automobile collisions throughout all of California, including Encino.
In the past, especially between 2019 and 2020, we have detected a large increase in traffic collisions in Los Angeles, especially near the 101 Freeway and the 405 Freeway interchange, and along the 101 Freeway generally. We have also noticed that major roadways, such as Ventura Boulevard, pose an additional risk of car accidents that involve pedestrians and bicyclists.
Few things are more frightening than a car crash. One moment you’re driving, watching the road, then there’s a sound like the world shattering and the view outside your windows is thrown into an uproar of metal and glass. Your heart pounds, your palms sweat, and everything feels wrong.
Even a minor automobile collision can be deeply upsetting – and if you or a loved one is injured, the initial impact is nothing compared to the pain and suffering that follows. We understand the trauma that a serious car collision can cause. That is why we dedicate ourselves to fighting relentlessly for people who are the victims of someone else’s recklessness in an Encino car accident.
The moments following a car accident can be hectic, and it can take all of your effort to remain calm in the situation. First of all, contact emergency services immediately and remain at the scene. Leaving the scene of an accident, even if you are trying to chase after someone else, is a crime.
While you await emergency services, check on other people who were involved in the collision to see if anyone is injured. Provide any help you can, but do not move anyone who may have suffered a neck or back injury. If you absolutely must move someone, due to a fire or a potential explosion, do so as carefully as possible and try to immobilize their spine.
Once the police arrive, you should provide an accurate account of what happened, but do not take responsibility for the crash. Even if you think you may have been partly at fault, don’t say it. You do not know everything that happened, and you might take the blame for something you did not do.
You should call your insurance company to report the accident, but do not say it was your fault and do not give a recorded statement.
Get a lawyer to represent your interests when dealing with any insurance company, including your own. You can easily sign away your rights if you are not careful when dealing with insurance companies or another driver’s attorney.
As much as we wish Encino were immune from car accidents, it is not. A serious car crash can happen at any time, day or night, so every driver must take care to avoid collisions and keep others safe. Sadly, Los Angeles County has some of the highest numbers in the state in terms of car crashes. A car crash can result in terrible, life-threatening injuries to the people involved, whether they be other drivers, passengers, or pedestrians.

Ventura Boulevard sees most of the collisions in Encino, and major crashes happen on the 5 and the 101 where they skirt the community.
That’s not to say Balboa Boulevard doesn’t see its fair share, especially at night. Collisions in Encino happen in a number of different ways:
L.A. ranks very high for injuries from car accidents, placing 2nd for total numbers of injuries and fatalities for all large cities in California. Many of these fatal collisions occur at night, particularly between the hours of 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. During this time, drivers can have reduced visibility, and there is a higher chance of a pedestrian or other driver encountering someone impaired by alcohol.
Encino, and Los Angeles in general, also has a serious problem with hit-and-run accidents. Whenever someone who is involved in a collision flees the scene, rather than staying to make sure other people are unharmed and provide information, it’s a criminal offense, with serious consequences for anyone found guilty.
