Sherman Oaks Quiet Neighborhoods/Busy Freeways
Sherman Oaks earns its reputation as a quieter alternative to Los Angeles. It’s a suburb of the valley that can brag about having actual neighborhoods. The pedestrian-friendly boulevards attract runners and dog-walkers. Many move to these suburbs seeking to be close to the action, but able to escape it as well.
Sherman Oaks, unfortunately, sees its share of that notorious Los Angeles Traffic. Rush-hours hit daily along the 405 and the 101/Ventura Freeway. Accidents are frequent and motorists have to be careful not to get clipped by careless drivers attempting to switch four lanes at a time.
Sherman Oaks is also home to a bit less hectic city streets. The famous Ventura Boulevard cuts through downtown and attracts locals and tourists seeking the amazing restaurant and bars and shopping destinations.
Traffic along the Ventura Boulevard and the Van Nuys Boulevard rarely slows down and the congestion can lead to drivers making bad decisions. Surprisingly, smoke from wildfires can cause traffic hazards drivers must try to avoid.
Even if you are extra careful behind the wheel, you can still find yourself in a crash. A violent accident can leave you, and your passengers, with injuries and facing costly recoveries. You shouldn’t have to pay medical bills and make up for lost wages on your own. Especially if you weren’t at fault in the incident.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What if an accident was partially my fault?
You may feel that you were partly to blame for your accident, but that doesn’t mean you can’t file a claim. California is a pure comparative negligence state. That means state law allows courts to divide up responsibility between those involved in an accident. You may take 75% of the blame in an accident, but the other driver may be found 25% at fault. That driver would owe you 25% of the damages from the accident.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit?
The statute of limitations sets forth a deadline to file a lawsuit. In Sherman Oaks and the rest of California, there is typically a two-year deadline from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit for injuries.
Can a lawyer really help?
An attorney is not needed in each and every case. However, if you or a family member has suffered a serious injury in an accident, it is strongly recommended you speak to an experienced attorney for a free consultation. We’ll let you know if we think we can improve the outcome of your case.
