The Reeves Law Group Serving Orange, CA

Orange City is part of Orange County of California and lies 3 miles north of Santa Ana, the county seat. It is next to the city of Tustin. It is home to 139,911 people (as of 2020) and is characterized by old structures that have existed since the 1920s. 

The city founders originally applied to have their place called Richland, but it was declined due to a similar town of the same name. The residents, undaunted, decided to name their city “Orange.” Orange City also earned the nickname “Plaza City” because it was the only city built around a plaza.  

The area’s economy boomed along with the rest of Orange County during the late 1800s when there was a surge in demand for California-grown citrus fruits. Dubbed the “Orange Era,” the period led to increased population, access to better railroads, and a real estate boom. 

Today, Orange City is known for the following historical landmarks:

  • Old Towne – a historic district containing original structures built during the city’s incorporation, such as the oldest operating soda fountain and the oldest operating bank
  • Orange County Zoo
  • Chapman University
  • The Village at Orange 
  • Villa Parks Orchards Association – sole remaining fruit packing operation
  • Lewis Ainsworth House – a restored house museum

Accidents And Safety In Orange

Orange City is safer compared to 35% of US Cities, with crime rates decreasing yearly by 10%. The violent crime and property crime rates are lower than the national and state averages, and fatal car crashes and traffic accidents have also decreased through the years. 

  • There were seven fewer fatal accidents in 2019 versus 2018
  • In 2019, there was only one fatal accident involving a drunk driver
  • Only five fatalities due to car crashes and traffic accidents were recorded in 2019, while only two pedestrians were in deadly accidents in the same year
  • In 2018, Will Ferrell and several companions were involved in a car accident along Interstate 5 in Orange County

Laws And Regulations In Orange

The federal and state legal systems play an essential role in keeping residents safe in Orange. Specific laws and regulations dictate how residents should live, and violations of these laws can result in penalties (or worse, result in injuries or cause injuries).

For example, Orange City’s Municipal Code 10.18.020 states that some streets may be designated as privately owned and maintained roads and are not open to the public for vehicular travel. However, their proximity or connection to public streets and highways will subject them to the California Vehicle Code (CVC) Section 21107.7

Knowledge of these private streets and the laws governing them is vital to protect yourself from untoward incidents and help you know and defend your rights in the case of accidents. Our lawyers at The Reeves Law Group are familiar with the intricacies of Orange City’s Municipal Code and the CVC. We can help sort out any disputes that may arise in a personal injury accident.

Important Resources For Those Injured In An Accident In Orange

After you’ve been in an accident, there are a few things you should do to ensure your safety and the safety of others. First, if anyone is injured, call 911 and ask for medical help. If the accident is minor and everyone can move, turn on your hazard lights and move your vehicle out of the traffic flow if possible. 

Once you’re off to the side, exchange insurance information with the other driver. It’s also a good idea to take their contact information in case you need to reach them later. If there are any witnesses, get their names and phone numbers as well. If you can, take any photos or videos of the accident and the damage to your vehicle. DO NOT communicate with the other party’s insurance company, only communicate with your insurance company.

Cooperate with local authorities as needed, and call a lawyer to help you if you feel that someone else’s actions have injured you.
