Auto Accident Attorney, Los Angeles: Securing Compensation for a Broadside Collision
At Fassonaki Law Firm, P.C., a Los Angeles auto accident law firm, we recently represented a client who was involved in an auto accident while driving in Los Angeles. Our client was severely injured after the adverse driver collided with the passenger side of his vehicle.
Our legal team at Fassonaki Law Firm P.C. investigated the details of the accident and collected all the relevant evidence. In this case, the adverse driver failed to make a safe left turn which was the proximate cause of the collision between the parties.
At the time of the accident, our client's body was forcefully thrown backward and forward. The airbag struck his chest and left our client unconscious. When he awoke, he noticed an immediate onset of pain in various parts of his body.
Under California law, drivers have a duty of care to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner while considering the safety of others on the road. The driver who struck our client's vehicle was engaging in dangerous and reckless behavior that put others at risk. His reckless maneuver violated California Vehicle Code § 21802.
According to California Vehicle Code § 21802, the driver of any vehicle approaching a stop sign at the entrance to, or within, an intersection shall stop and then yield the right-of-way to any vehicles that have approached from another highway, or that are approaching so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to those vehicles until he or she can proceed with reasonable safety.
Thanks to the efforts of our team, we achieved a resounding victory. As a result of our dedicated work, the adverse party's insurance carrier accepted liability and agreed to compensate our client fully for this loss.
