About

The California Car Accident Reports blog is provided as public service by BISNAR | CHASE Personal Injury Attorneys LLP. Our intention is to assist those who do not have ready access to legal representation to have some idea of their rights and options and thereby level the playing field between the "haves" and "have nots."

Many people who have been in serious accidents, as well as their family members and friends, seek information about their accident from the Internet. It is our intention to provide those people with an easy to find source of publicly available accident information combined with some discussion of law. The only legal advice this blog intends to give is, "Get a consultation with a skilled attorney."

It is our hope that this blog will keep people from losing their rights due to lack of information or legal resources.  This blog is provided to assist those who do not have ready access to personal injury legal assistance. It not a substitute for consultation with an attorney.

We are regularly consulted by accident victims whose rights to recover rightful compensation have been seriously harmed by the failure to take timely action. It is our intention to prevent our readers from losing their rights by educating them as to what was reported to have happened in particular accidents, what laws may apply, how frequent similar accidents occur, who may be legally at fault, what their rights may be, time limits for taking action and so on.

People who have witnessed accidents and then read our blogs have been helpful in providing information to assist in the determination of what and who caused various accidents as well as tracking down hit and run drivers that caused an accident and then fled the scene.

Our blog has provided a forum for readers to express their well wishes, to share their feelings, to have their say, to share information, to give opinions and to update readers on new developments.

Regularly we hear from attorneys who request our assistance after reading our blog. Most of them are not specialists in personal injury or defect products cases and are seeking assistance to better serve their clients. We welcome the opportunity to assist.

We welcome comments about our blog. If, for any reason, innocent victims or their immediate family wish their names removed from our blogs, we will do so upon the written email or traditional mail request from an immediate family member.  You can email us at comments@BestAttorney.com.

We receive emails thanking us for this service as well as attacking us for providing it. We are not immune to personal attacks by those who disagree with our positions or our methods. However, the hurt of the personal attacks is outweighed by knowing we are providing a valuable service to people in one of their times of greatest need. We would rather suffer the personal attacks than to see accident victims taken advantage of for lack of knowledge or resources.

    Question: Recently, I suffered a foot injury which resulted in multiple stitches on the tip of my left big toe. This injury was caused by an uneven sidewalk on Melrose Blvd in Hollywood. A tree stump that was growing under the sidewalk. Because of the uneven sidewalk, when taking a step forward, the impact of my foot hitting the sidewalk caused about an inch gash on my toe Do you think it would be possible for the City of Los Angeles to cover my medical bill? I haven't received my emergency room bill but I estimate it to be at least $500.00 $1,000.00. Thank you.

    Premises liability claims against a city government are very hard to win. We usually will not advise a person to pursue a case unless the defect is very bad and the injury is very serious. The biggest stumbling block--especially for sidewalk cases like yours--is that the code section, which allows government liability for public property, requires the defect to be "non-trivial." A height difference of as much as 3/4 of an inch is non-trivial as a matter of law. A difference of one inch still presents problems.

    As a second consideration, government entries will not pay this as a claim and you will have to pursue a lawsuit to have any chance to get a recovery. This will be expensive.

    To answer you question contact the city, send them the bill and photographs of your injury and where you fell. Don't be surprised, however, if you hear nothing back.
