PANORAMA CITY: Falling Tree Branch Injures Teenager on Ranchito Avenue

tree accident victimPANORAMA CITY, California (May 23, 2017) — A 15-year-old boy was struck down by a falling tree branch in the 8000 block of Ranchito Avenue, according to a report by the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Firefighters responded to the scene of the injury accident about 7 p.m., near Boxwood Place, the LAFD said. The teenager suffered leg abrasions, but his injuries were not life threatening. Paramedics transported the boy to a hospital for further medical treatment.

Fallen Tree Accidents

It’s unclear what caused the tree branch to fall down in Panorama City, but there are many factors that could have led to this dangerous condition. The ownership of the tree was also not disclosed in the fire department’s report, but typically the owner of the tree is also the owner of the land where the truck is located. Responsibility for the boy’s injuries would most likely fall on the tree owner who is required to take steps to ensure the public’s safety by maintaining trees. The owner could be a resident, a government or a business owner.

Indeed, trees can cause serious injuries or even death when they are not routinely inspected or maintained. Some recent examples included an incident where a Los Angeles man was crushed after a palm tree fell on him; a woman was crushed to death in Costa Mesa when a large eucalyptus tree fell over onto her car; a person was killed and two were injured when a tree fell down in Yosemite National Park; and a falling eucalyptus tree struck and injured 15 people at a Marine depot in San Diego.

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.
