Freeway Accidents

Experienced Los Angeles Car Accident Attorneys Helping Injured Motorists Obtain the Compensation They Need and Deserve

The freeway system in Southern California can be a nightmare for motorists. The stand-still traffic, aggressive drivers, and confusing road signs that are commonplace create serious hazards for even the most comfortable driver. Not surprisingly, freeway accidents are one of the most common types of accidents in both Los Angeles and Orange County. At Power Trial Lawyers, we represent accident victims who suffered serious injuries in a freeway accident. With more than a decade of experience connecting our clients with meaningful compensation, we have what it takes to effectively handle your case from beginning to end.

What Are the Common Causes of Freeway Accidents?

Driving on a Southern California freeway isn’t something that most people look forward to; however, it’s often unavoidable. The primary reason most people avoid freeways is that they are dangerous. When it comes to freeway accidents, some of the most common causes include:

  • Distracted driving,
  • Drunk and drugged driving,
  • Aggressive driving,
  • Drowsy driving,
  • Sudden slowdowns, and
  • Confusing signage and lane markings.

While freeways can be challenging to navigate, drivers are responsible for operating their vehicles in a safe and responsible manner at all times. Thus, if a driver’s negligence causes an accident, they can be held liable through a Los Angeles personal injury lawsuit.

What Are the Most Dangerous Freeways in Southern California?

Southern California is known for having some of the most dangerous highways in the country. Whether it’s constant traffic, never-ending road construction projects, or aggressive drivers, motorists must always be on high alert. While every freeway in Southern California presents its fair share of risks, the following are the most dangerous:

  • Alicia Parkway;
  • I-405 north, between Exits 21 and 45;
  • I-405 north, between Exits 53 (Marvista) to 38B (Gardena);
  • I-5 at I-10 to CA 170.
  • Interstate 5;
  • Ortega Highway;
  • The 405;
  • U.S Route 101 near Exit 3B; and
  • U.S. Route 101 South, between Exits 13B and 34.

Regardless of where you were injured, Power Trial Lawyers can help you understand your rights and help you prepare a claim for compensation against the at-fault motorist responsible for your injuries.

Injuries in Car Accidents on the Freeway

Not surprisingly, most freeway accidents occur at a higher speed than other car accidents. Thus, they tend to result in more serious injuries, on average. Some of the most common injuries that we see in freeway accidents include:

  • Broken bones,
  • Lacerations,
  • Facial injuries,
  • Whiplash and other neck injuries,
  • Spinal cord injuries,
  • Traumatic brain injuries,
  • Internal organ damage, and
  • Knee injuries.

At Power Trial Lawyers, we recognize that an accident can leave you in a bad spot, between medical expenses, lost wages, and the long-term impact the accident will have on your life. We don’t think it’s fair that you are on the hook for the damages related to an accident you didn’t cause. We can help you pursue a claim for compensation against the party or parties responsible for your injuries.
