Car Accident Advice
- Drivers involved in minor accidents with no serious injuries should move cars to the side of the road and out of the way of oncoming traffic
- Leaving cars parked in the middle of the road or busy intersection can result in additional accidents and injuries
- If a car cannot be moved safely, drivers and passengers should remain in the cars with seatbelts fastened for everyone's safety until help arrives
- Make sure to turn on hazard lights and set out cones, flares or warning triangles, if possible to do safely

One typical injury that our clients of car accidents experience is spinal cord injury. The spinal cord is a long, thin, tube of nerves, tissue and cells that extends from the brain to the low back. A spinal cord injury occurs when there is damage to the spinal cord from trauma, loss of its normal blood supply, or compression from tumor or infection. The most common cause of spinal cord injury is trauma. Nearly half of these injuries are caused by car and other motor vehicle accidents, including auto accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck collisions. An car or automobile accident is a serious issue that can lead to disastrous outcomes and have ongoing effects on the victims involved so it is very important to have a qualified and experienced attorney on your side. If you or someone you care about sustained any spinal cord injuries from any car accident or other personal injury accident in Encino or anywhere in California, please contact us now, including for referrals to doctors, including orthopedic surgeons, who may provide treatment without expecting any payment until the claim is resolved.
