Encino Personal Injury Attorneys
More than 41,000 people call Encino home. It is a hilly district in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles, an area that includes Van Nuys, Sherman Oaks, Northridge, Reseda, Tarzana, Woodland Hills, North Hollywood, and Studio City. Those living in or visiting Encino can appreciate outdoor activities at the Sepulveda Recreation Area, the Velodrome, or at the annual Earth Day Festival at Woodley Park.
While enjoying these unique opportunities, running errands, or traveling to work, no one anticipates being seriously injured in an accident. Unfortunately, statistics show that almost everyone will be involved in at least one traffic collision during his or her lifetime. In 2008 alone, the California Highway Patrol reported 452,595 vehicular accidents in the State of California, resulting in 241,873 injuries and 3,401 fatalities. Two young men were killed in an automobile accident in Encino in June of 2008. On May 14, 2009, two motorists were killed in a fiery traffic accident on Burbank Boulevard. The driver of an SUV was killed in September of 2010, when his vehicle crashed into the center divider on the 101 Freeway in Encino. There is a one in three chance of being injured or killed if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident.
In this age of cell phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), video monitors, and navigation systems, motorists are driving with more distractions than ever. In 2009, as many as 20% of traffic accidents were reported to be the result of driving while distracted.
Texting while operating any motorized vehicle is particularly dangerous because the driver is impaired visually, manually, and cognitively. Most Encino residents recall the horrific railroad accident in Chatsworth on September 12, 2008. A commuter train filled with passengers slammed into a locomotive, killing 25 people and injuring 135 others. The cause of the crash was determined to be distracted driving. The engineer was texting while operating the train. Tragically, the safety of many can be compromised by the carelessness of a single individual.
