Traffic Accidents in Sherman Oaks

Car accidents in the San Fernando Valley are ubiquitous. Streets in Sherman Oaks and other San Fernando Valley cities are becoming increasingly congested with traffic. The reality is that you will likely be involved in a traffic accident at some point in your life. Even if you have a clean driving record and follow traffic laws, you can't control what other drivers on the road do. When you add in pedestrians and bicyclists to the mix, it is no wonder the number of accidents involving motor vehicles is on the rise.

What should you do if you are involved in a car accident in Sherman Oaks? No matter who is at fault, there are several steps you can take to protect yourself:

  • Move to a safe place. Accidents often occur in the line of traffic, and you run the risk of an additional collision or injuries if you remain on a busy street.
  • Check for injuries. Call 911 if necessary to seek immediate medical attention for any victims of the accident who need it. Even if emergency medical help is not necessary, you should still visit your primary care physician as soon as practical to obtain a thorough examination and document any potential injuries. Even many serious car accident injuries are not immediately apparent to the victim and early diagnosis and treatment can be critical.
  • Document the details of the accident. Get insurance information, drivers license, license plate number, and other personal information from all parties involved.
  • Alert police so that an accident report is completed. Even the simplest car accidents should have documentation to prove the circumstances of the traffic collision.

Sherman Oaks Car Accident Attorneys Can Help

Motor vehicle accidents in Sherman Oaks may involve a car, truck, motorcycle, bus and even pedestrians. Despite the number of freeways in the San Fernando Valley, they are not the site of most auto accidents. Sometimes a car accident happens where you least expect it, such as:

  • Parking Lots
  • Bike Lanes
  • Crosswalks
  • Private Roads

When a car collides with a person, property, or another moving vehicle, significant personal injury and property damage can occur. Most car accidents are caused by negligent behavior, such as reckless driving, or failure to obey traffic laws.

For car accidents in Sherman Oaks and throughout the San Fernando Valley, it is especially important to find a knowledgeable traffic accident attorney who understands the local traffic conditions. Consulting with an experienced Sherman Oaks accident lawyer will help you understand your rights regarding medical bills, lost wages or other damages to which you may be entitled.
