Freeway & Highway Accident Lawyer in Los Angeles, CA
Our Attorneys Help People Injured in Freeway and Highway Accidents
Freeway collisions are often far more serious than those that occur on surface streets. While a minor fender bender on the 110 during rush hour might not leave anyone reeling, a high-speed collision can end up in a deadly chain-reaction accident. On top of that, some commuters carpool or use buses to get to and from work every day, which creates additional dangers.
The results of a freeway accident can be catastrophic for the people involved, and their loved ones. Fortunately, people injured in these collisions do not have to suffer in silence, because California’s civil code gives them an avenue for seeking compensation. However, winning a lawsuit against someone responsible for causing a freeway accident is no small task, which is why you should always have an experienced Los Angeles car accident lawyer to represent you.

Why Freeway Accidents Are More Dangerous
The dangers of a freeway accident are higher speeds and a denser population of vehicles. Anyone who remembers basic physics knows that the force of an impact is directly related to the acceleration of the vehicles involved. In other words: at higher speeds, there is greater momentum when a collision occurs, which means there is typically more damage to vehicles and higher risk of serious injuries to drivers.
Freeways in Los Angeles are crowded 99% of the time, so one rear-end crash can cause multiple chain-reaction accidents.
Commuters at Risk
Living in L.A. County typically means using the freeways to commute to and from work every day. Liability for an injury can become more complicated when a driver is on his way to work and already on the clock—or possibly driving as part of a job. For example, if an administrative assistant is running errands for her company, and strikes another vehicle, the assistant might be liable for the accident, but it is also possible that her company is responsible (and has insurance coverage).
A collision between two vehicles is already a serious issue, but if one of those cars has four people commuting to a business meeting, matters become more complicated. Was the driver purely at fault? Was one of the passengers distracting the driver and potentially to blame? This is why an experienced Los Angeles freeway accident attorney is so important to help you cut through all these details and figure out exactly what happened.
Motorcycles on the Freeway
Motorcycles are popular in sunny Southern California, especially on freeways around L.A. since they are allowed to use the HOV/carpool lane (and legally lane-split). But too often, drivers fail to notice motorcyclists. When a driver on a freeway fails to see a motorcyclist, the consequences can be fatal for the motorcycle rider. Even minor accidents involving a motorcycle can end in catastrophic injuries for the biker.
Drivers throughout Los Angeles deserve to be able to get where they are going safely.
