Sherman Oaks Car Accidents AttorneySherman Oaks is a well-to-do area within the San Fernando Valley. It might seem large but it is only about 8 miles square. The Sherman Oaks urban area is developed for commercial use and it is also a thriving community where many people live. Thus, there are skyscrapers and office buildings, restaurants, stores, businesses, residences, apartments, and condominiums throughout, depending where you are. In fact, it is so beautiful that it can be distracting to drivers. The Ventura Freeway, the San Diego Freeway, Beverly Glen Boulevard and Sepulveda Boulevard are heavily traveled, and, unfortunately, are frequently the sites of car and truck and motorcycle accidents.
The San Fernando Valley is an exquisite geographic area within the Los Angeles area. Known as "The Valley," it consists of a city outlined by the outrageously beautiful Transverse Mountain Range. With a population of more than 1.75 million people, there are many local drivers, drivers passing through the area, and tourists who use the busy streets, roads and freeways 24 hours a day. Because the area is so spread out, the primary form of transportation is the motorized vehicle. Cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles of every size, make and model constantly zip around the city.
Truck & Motorcycle InjuriesUnfortunately, all too often drivers do not pay attention for one reason or another. Their lack of attention may result in a serious accident. Insurance companies are paid outrageously high amounts of money by drivers so that in the event of a car or truck accident or a motorcycle crash, they and/or any victims are protected, and they can recover damages for injuries, car damage, property damage, loss of work, disability and more. At Freeman and Freeman, we specialize in car and truck and motorcycle accidents. We are here to serve the driver who was the unwitting victim of a motorcycle crash or car or truck accident.

Although there has been a decrease in accidents in California over the last 4 years, accidents occur all too frequently. Drivers make common mistakes and sometimes are shocked to realize they have been driving with very little awareness and focus. A driver that is not focused is potentially an accident waiting to happen. All a good driver can really do is drive defensively and as carefully as possible. Even when a skillful driver does drive defensively, there might be a car or truck accident waiting to happen because of poor road conditions such as potholes, pavement breaks, street cracks, highway debris, speeding emergency vehicles, drivers who cannot read the signs properly, and for many other reasons too numerous to name.
