Rear End Car Crash Attorney in Sherman Oaks, California

Have you been the victim of a rear end car accident? If so, contact The Horowitz Law Firm for a free consultation regarding your legal rights. If you have been hit while your vehicle was stopped or stationary, chances are that a court will presume that that the vehicle that hit you from the rear was negligent. However, a car driver that collides with the rear of another vehicle is not necessarily always guilty of negligence. Whether the car which hit the vehicle in front of him or her was negligent is a question of fact, and it depends upon the circumstances of each particular case. So for example, if it is found that the car in front, which was rear-ended, stopped suddenly, or was driving too slowly, it is possible that the car behind may not be guilty of negligence. But when the car coming from behind is found to not have seen something that is clearly visible and would have been seen by a driver that was using ordinary care, then such a driver that hits the car in front of him or her would typically be found to be guilty of negligence. If you have been hit in the rear in an auto accident, make sure that your legal rights are protected. Call Sherman Oaks auto accident attorney and rear end car crash attorney Jeffrey D. Horowitz of The Horowitz Law Firm, for a free consultation. The Horowitz Law Firm will fight for your rights, and will work hard to help you recover for your injuries and any lost wages.

Dog Bite Attorney in Sherman Oaks, California

Have you been the victim of a dog bite? If so, you may be able to obtain recovery against the owner of the dog, based on California’s dog bite statute. Under California Civil Code section 3342, the owner of any dog is liable for damages suffered by any person bitten by the dog while in a public place or while lawfully in a private place, including the dog owner’s property. This is so even if the dog has never exhibited viciousness in the past, and even if the dog’s owner had no knowledge of the dog’s viciousness. The dog bite statute allows the victim of a dog bite to recover damages without having to show any fault on the part of the dog’s owner. In other words, the dog owner is subject to strict liability. In addition, the Los Angeles Municipal Code contains a section requiring dog owners to keep their dogs on a leash when the dog is off of the owner’s premises. A violation of this municipal code section can subject the dog’s owner to liability under the negligence per se theory, if a person is injured or bitten as a result of a dog not being on a leash. If you have suffered personal injury from a dog bite, contact Sherman Oaks personal injury attorney Jeffrey D. Horowitz of The Horowitz Law Firm, for a free consultation regarding your legal rights.
