Commenting on the recent article, the Los Angeles area personal injury attorney explains that, while downtown L.A. is making headway in reducing pedestrian-vehicle collisions, there is still more work to be done.

While many car accidents do not involve a clear case of individual negligence, it is important that every driver knows their legal rights and options.

In the event of a serious injury in an auto accident where the other party appears to be at fault, victims and/or their loved ones should consider contacting a personal injury lawyer to ensure that they get the compensation they deserve.

According to an article published March 15th on LA Downtown News, 16 busy downtown intersections in the city will be modified to allow pedestrians an added four-second window of safe crossing time. The author of the article notes that this measure is intended to prevent pedestrian-vehicle collisions in the area by offering pedestrians a head start before cars can make right turns. According to Raymond R. Hassanlou, a leading Los Angeles personal injury attorney, the city deserves praise for taking measures to reduce the number of collisions and near-collisions in downtown L.A.’s busiest sectors, particularly those involving pedestrians. Mr. Hassanlou notes that, although car accidents are unfortunately a common occurrence in the Los Angeles area, for the people involved, they are anything but. Numerous factors, he notes, including intoxication, cell phone usage, and aggressive driving account for an unnecessarily high rate of potentially tragic collisions that could otherwise be prevented. The personal injury attorney notes that, while vehicular injuries are likely to remain a fact of life for the foreseeable future, any measure taken by cities to move closer to the goal of eliminating accidents involving serious injuries can be considered an important step forward.

In the event of a serious injury in an auto accident where the other party appears to be at fault, victims and/or their loved ones should consider contacting a personal injury lawyer to ensure that they get the compensation they deserve. Oftentimes, he notes, insurance companies who insure negligent drivers will attempt to settle out of court for less than acceptable sums by convincing collision victims and their families that a lawyer is not necessary. In these situations, Mr. Hassanlou notes that victims can benefit from consulting a highly experienced personal injury attorney. Whether a prospective client’s concerns include head-on or rear-end collisions, motorcycle accidents, or even traumatic brain, head, or neck injuries, Mr. Hassanlou notes that his legal firm will consider nearly any auto accident or personal injury case.

While many car accidents do not involve a clear case of individual negligence, it is important that every driver knows their legal rights and options.
