Car Accidents

Los Angeles Car Accident Attorneys

Car accidents happen every single day across the country. The injuries, damages, and losses suffered as a result of a car accident can vary greatly. If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident caused by another driver, you may be entitled to compensation that helps with the costs of your recovery. 

As Los Angeles car accident lawyers with over 50 years of combined experience with personal injury cases, we can provide strong representation so you can focus on what matters most — your recovery.


The Law Offices of Rice & Bloomfield represents people injured in car, motorcycle, or truck accidents.

We handle all types of cases arising from:

  • Careless drivers
  • Drunk drivers
  • Hit-and-run accidents
  • Uninsured motorist crashes
  • Underinsured motorist collisions

The types of car accident cases we handle include those involving other cars, SUVs, motorcyclespedestrianssemi-tractor trailer collisions, and rollovers.

Causes of Car Accidents

We are experienced and skilled in handling all types of car accident cases, regardless of the cause. 

Some of the more common causes of car accidents involve a driver who:

  • Was speeding
  • Rear-ended you
  • Made a left turn in front of you
  • Failed to stop at a stop sign
  • Ran a red light
  • Was texting while driving

Whether the person that hit you was doing any of the above or has other reasons for colliding with your vehicle, they should still be held responsible for their actions — especially when your injuries cause additional financial burden and decrease your quality of life.

Car Accident Injuries

The injury you may have suffered from these types of accidents can be severe and life-altering. 

You may have suffered:

  • An injury to your head, neck, or back (whiplash)
  • Burns to your head or neck
  • Nerve damage
  • Disc injury
  • Broken or dislocated bones or limbs
  • Loss of use of part of your body

Whether your injuries are minor or severe, you’ve likely stacked up medical bills, lost wages due to missing work, and wondered how you’ll be able to deal with the insurance companies and other drivers involved. Dealing with the aftermath of an accident can be stressful and overwhelming, but you don’t have to take on your legal situation alone.

Steps to Take After a Car Accident

Being involved in a car accident can be a stressful and overwhelming experience. Knowing what steps to take immediately following the accident can help protect your rights and ensure a smoother claims process. Here are some important steps to consider:

  1. Check for injuries: The first priority after a car accident is to check for any injuries. If anyone is injured, call 911 immediately.
  2. Move to safety: If it is safe to do so, move your vehicle out of traffic to avoid further accidents or injuries.
  3. Exchange information: Exchange contact and insurance information with the other parties involved in the accident. This includes names, phone numbers, addresses, and insurance policy details.
  4. Document the accident: Take photos of the accident scene, including damage to vehicles, skid marks, and any other relevant details. This can be helpful when filing an insurance claim or pursuing legal action.
  5. Report the accident: Contact the police and report the accident. Obtain a copy of the police report for your records.
  6. Seek medical attention: Even if you don’t feel injured immediately after the accident, it is important to seek medical attention. Some injuries may not be apparent right away.
  7. Notify your insurance company: Contact your insurance company as soon as possible to report the accident and initiate the claims process. Refrain from sharing too many details or giving a recorded statement until you have first consulted an attorney.
  8. Consult with an attorney: If you have been injured in a car accident, it is advisable to consult with an experienced car accident attorney. They can help protect your rights, navigate the legal process, and pursue compensation for your injuries and damages.

Remember, every car accident is unique, and the specific steps to take may vary depending on the circumstances. It is always best to consult with a legal professional to ensure you are taking the appropriate actions after a car accident.
