Encino Personal Injury Lawyer

injury settlement

Encino is a popular suburb in the greater Los Angeles metropolitan area with a population of approximately 61,500 people. 

This sought after neighborhood is located in the central part of the southern San Fernando Valley and flanked by other Valley hotspots such as Bel Air, Reseda, Sherman Oaks, Brentwood, and Tarzana.

This treelined suburb offers a fantastic place to live and raise a family, as well as work and develop business relationships.

 Encino is a mixed residential and business area and is both a sought after place to live – particularly south of Ventura Blvd in the Encino Hills – and a great place to do business with a thriving economy, especially along Ventura Boulevard, with healthcare, financial services, law firms, and real estate agencies being the primary employers.

Two of the busiest roadways in all of Southern California, the 405 freeway and 101 freeway, run through Encino increasing the chances of being involved in a motor vehicle accident.

Encino is known as a great place to live and work, but when you Factor in busy roads such as the 101 and 405 freeways, Ventura Blvd, Sepulveda Boulevard, and Balboa Blvd, you will soon see why many experts say that the most dangerous thing that anyone can do on any given day is to get on the road in a motor vehicle or as a pedestrian.

The legal term “personal injury” refers to an area of civil law that allows accident victims suffering for resulting injuries the right to attempt to gain financial compensation for losses arising as a result of an accident that was largely due to another person’s negligence.

Why Hire a Personal Injury in Encino

A common question many injury victims ask after being injured in a motor vehicle is if they should hire a lawyer to help them or just try to handle the insurance companies by themselves.

Many insurance companies will make the process of trying to receive compensation convoluted and impossible to navigate in an attempt to wear the victim down and decrease the amount of financial compensation that they offer to pay to accident victims.

Don’t let this happen to you.

An experienced personal injury attorney can make all the difference when it comes to the amount of compensation you could receive, and have the added bonus of relieving some of the stress involved in building an injury case and dealing with the insurance companies.

Having to Deal With Insurance Companies After an Encino Accident

Unfortunately, the trauma of being involved and injured in a car accident is just the beginning of a long and stressful process to get fully compensated for the injuries you have received.

Soon after the dust has settled from the accident and you are at home recovering from your injuries, the insurance companies will be in contact with you and their highly trained adjusters will start trying to limit their company’s exposure and whittle your monetary claim down to nothing.

 The worst thing you can do is start agreeing with what the adjuster is saying, or sign papers and give recorded statements.

Doing this may significantly reduce your ability to claim the compensation you deserve.

One of the most common tactics most insurance companies use is to offer victims a quick settlement and making it look like they are doing you a favor with your best interest at heart.

This is usually untrue and sadly many people that have not consulted with a legal professional do not know the difference and sign their rights away.

You should never sign anything or give any type of recorded statement until you have consulted with The Law Offices of Daniel Kim.

Types of Injury Cases We Can Help with

The Law Offices of Daniel Kim firm specializes in motor vehicle accidents here in Encino.

Car – the most common type of motor vehicle accident usually involves a passenger car. Through our years of experience, we have seen so many car accidents that could have been avoided, but sadly distracted driving and speeding accidents continue to increase.

Uber – Uber is a very popular method of on-demand transportation for people living in Encino, and has helped to reduce the number of DUI and drunk accidents and arrests across LA.

Motorcycle – riding a motorcycle gives many people a sense of freedom but certain risks come with it. Road rash and broken bones are some of the most common injuries reported after a motorcycle crash, but unfortunately, injuries from a motorcycle accident can be much more severe than other accidents.

Pedestrian – anytime a motor vehicle hits a person walking or jogging the pedestrian will usually suffer some pretty serious injuries.

Bike – bicycle riders are common in Encino and many motor vehicles simply don’t drive safely around them. If you are injured in a bike accident in Encino please contact us for a FREE consultation.

Truck – when you are on residential streets, you might not think Encino is much of a hub for large commercial trucks. But with the 405 and 101 and freeways nearby there are a lot more truck accidents in the area that you might realize.


Making Demands and Negotiating

In many smaller personal injury cases resulting from an Encino motor vehicle accident, the case will ideally be settled before a lawsuit even has to be filed.

However, if your case involves a serious and permanent injury or impairment, then Daniel Kim will be less likely to recommend settling the case before filing suit in the hopes of receiving far greater compensation. 

No matter what, all case options will be discussed with you thoroughly so you can make an informed decision.
