Most car accidents in Los Angeles are minor. These fender benders are just another hassle—part of living in a big city. But sometimes those crashes can do more than just break a taillight or put a dent in a door panel. A serious Los Angeles car accident can completely derail your life, leave you really injured and out of work, put tremendous financial strain on you and your family, and have long-lasting (perhaps even permanent) effects.
When that happens, we can help. Sally Morin has assembled a team of expert Los Angeles car accident attorneys to help victims get the compensation they deserve and get back on the road quickly. Whether that means negotiating a substantial but fair settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance provider or going to court to fight for what our client deserves. You’ve been in a major car accident. Isn’t that enough? Let us take the wheel.

Then speaking with a Los Angeles car accident lawyer at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers - or completing our FREE online case evaluation - is the first step on the road to recovery.
Many people think that hiring a lawyer for their car accident is too expensive or unnecessary. They think that insurance companies will automatically cut them a check to cover their expenses. But the sad truth is those checks don’t come easily, and when they do finally come they are written for the smallest amount possible.
These quick low-ball payouts may come without involving a lawyer and their fees, but they don’t take into account the full extent of your injuries or the total length of your recovery time. Sure, they may pay for your past medical bills but will they cover your lost wages? Will they cover extended physical therapy if you need it or repeat surgical procedures that may be necessary in the future? Will they pay for the pain and suffering you endured when you were recovering from your injuries?
Making sure you get all of these important things compensated is what a solid Los Angeles car accident lawyer will help you do. Assuming the attorney you choose has a track record of success, they will get you far beyond what their legal fees will be, putting more money in your wallet when your case is over.
Los Angeles County has the highest number of injury and death-related auto accidents in all of California and also the top in California for DUI traffic accidents. There are roughly 80,000 car accidents in Los Angeles County every year. In 2016 there were a record 260 fatalities - an increase of almost 43% over 2015. (US car accident deaths only increased 6% in this same period.) In 2017, despite the City’s commitment to “Vision Zero,” Los Angeles again saw a jaw-dropping 22% increase in traffic deaths. Not all Los Angeles car accidents result in death, but there are thousands upon thousands of LA car crashes that result in reported injuries every year.
These wrecks can happen to anyone and often they are another person’s fault. Distracted, negligent, or reckless drivers cause the vast majority of car accidents in Los Angeles. In fact, the top contributing factors to all automobile accidents are:
These top causes of automobile accidents in Los Angeles put the fault squarely on the other driver in the majority of cases.
Even if you’ve never been in a car accident in Los Angeles before, your odds of having one within the next year are roughly one in ten. Hopefully, you do not have one. Or, if you do end up in a car wreck, ideally it is a minor injury crash that requires little or no medical treatment and certainly doesn’t involve a car accident lawyer. However, if you are seriously injured in a Los Angeles car accident, you’ll want to have an attorney you know you can trust during this nerve-racking time.
