Culver City Accidents
Culver City, home to more than 38,000 people, is best known as the home to many famous movie/television studios and radio stations. MGM, NFL Network, and National Public Radio (NPR) all call Culver City home. Thanks to the entertainment industry, Culver City’s population grows exponentially with workers and tourists. Packing so many people (and vehicles) into such a small area can have serious consequences on the city’s roads. In 2015, drivers logged more than 780,000 miles on Culver City’s roads and freeways every day, which is a lot of traffic for a city of only 5-square-miles. Heavier and more contested traffic has led to more traffic accidents in the city over the past few years. In 2015, there were 490 reported injury-causing and fatal accident in Culver City. This was a significant increase in the number of accidents (298) in 2013.

Why Should I File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Victims who are injured in an unexpected accident will be faced with significant physical, emotional, and financial hurdles on their road to recovery. Statistics show that the average bodily injury claim after a car accident is more than $15,500. This doesn’t even include the $3,000 in property damage that the average accident victim incurs. Most of us do not have enough money tucked away in savings to cover these (and other) expenses after an accident. Fortunately, as a California accident victim, you have the right to recover compensation if another person is responsible for your injuries. The money you recover from your lawsuit can help to compensate for damages you suffer because of your accident, including:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Property damage, and
- Reduced earning capacity.
Why Should a Personal Injury Attorney Handle My Case?
Personal injury claims are complex, time-consuming, and often involve multiple parties.
Attorneys Understand the Law
Lawsuits can be incredibly complicated. An attorney will be intimately familiar with the laws and procedures that apply to your specific case. Their knowledge and experience handling similar cases will give you an edge.
Claims Can Take Time
When you are injured in an accident your time may be consumed by your physical and emotional recovery. You may simply not have the time to dedicate to pursuing a claim on your own. Even if you do have the time, the energy you spend fighting a lawsuit would be better served focused on your recovery. Hiring an attorney to represent your interests will allow you to dedicate your time to getting better.
Insurance Companies Will Try to Limit Recovery
Hiring an attorney to handle your personal injury case will increase the chances of maximizing the compensation you recover. Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to deal with and will do everything in their power to limit the amount of money you get. Their focus is on their own bottom line, and not your best interests. Our Culver City personal injury lawyers know how to handle these insurance companies and force them to fairly compensate you for your injuries.
What Will a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?

At Citywide Law Group, our attorneys have developed an aggressive and thorough process that allows us to recover the most for our clients.

When you come in for your free consultation you will have the opportunity to learn about our team of attorneys and experience.

You will also have the opportunity to ask us the questions that you may have.
An investigation is essential to a successful case, so our legal team will conduct a thorough investigation into your case. We will review reports, interview witnesses, consult with experts, and conduct legal research in order to develop your case. The results of this investigation will be crucial in creating a persuasive legal argument in your case.
We will force insurance companies (and/or at-fault parties) to come to the negotiating table. We won’t accept any lowball offers and will aggressively pursue the compensation to which you are entitled. If you aren’t happy with the settlement offers you receive we will take your case to court.
Most personal injury cases are settled outside of court. However, if you aren’t happy with the settlement offers you receive we will not hesitate to go to trial. Our attorneys are skilled litigators who know how to connect with a jury. Insurance companies know our strengths and successes in the courtroom and may be eager to provide a better settlement offer.

What Should I Do After a Culver City Accident?
The decisions you make immediately following your injury-causing accident will affect any future legal claims you decide to pursue.

- Get checked out by a medical professional as soon as possible.
- Report the accident to police and/or the proper authority.
- Document the scene of the accident and your injury by taking photographs.
