koreatown crash los angeles picoKOREATOWN, California (Feb. 21, 2017) –Five people were injured Monday night in a collision involving two motorists at 1599 West Pico Boulevard, a California Highway Patrol report said.

The crash took place about 8:57 p.m. last night between a vehicle occupied by a family of four including a baby and a second vehicle whose driver was arrested for drunken driving. The family’s vehicle crashed into a planter in front of a fast food restaurant, police said.

The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to help the victims at the scene. The Jaws of Life were used to extricate two patients. Those hurt included a 9-month-old baby who had a bump on his forehead and scrapes and a 17-year-old boy and the parents of the children had complaints of pain and bumps and bruises.

The woman driving the second vehicle suffered minor injuries.

The Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Traffic Division is heading up the investigation into the crash. The two drivers each blamed the other for the crash saying they ran the red traffic light.

Liability for Collisions

Police have a duty to investigate a collision involving injuries to determine liability. In this case, we have a driver who is suspected of drunken driving and one of the drivers may have ran through a red traffic light as well. Witnesses to the crash will help police determine liability when there are conflicting stories about what happened, but also video footage and evidence will help them find the truth. To protect your legal rights, consider hiring an experienced personal injury attorney. Johnson Attorneys Group offers a free consultation at 800-235-6801.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case.
