Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 19, 2013
Leading Los Angeles personal injury lawyer Rodney Mesriani, Esq. said today that a recent study conducted by the California Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) showed that unlicensed drivers and those with suspended or revoked licenses are nearly three times more likely to cause serious crashes. The study, “Estimation of Fatal Crash Rates for Suspended/Revoked and Unlicensed Drivers in California” also reveals that unlicensed drivers are more dangerous than those who were previously granted licenses to drive but were either suspended or revoked for valid reasons.
Los Angeles car accident lawyer, Rodney Mesriani, Esq., alarms drivers, riders and pedestrians on the growing indifference of Los Angeles, California drivers to traffic rules and regulations, especially with the younger generations. “This new study from the DMV, which also reveals that people between the ages of 20 to 29 have the highest percentage of unauthorized license vehicle accidents, is alarming. It shows the growing disrespect or neglect of younger generations to motor vehicle regulations that were placed to protect our citizens,” said Rodney Mesriani of the Mesriani Law Group.
“What’s more, it puts Los Angeles car accident victims at greater risk as every car accident victim suffers injuries and needs costly medical treatments. Being injured in a car accident by an unlicensed driver or those with suspended or revoked license affects the victim’s ability to recover on claims against the party at fault’s insurance coverage.” The personal injury firm’s Los Angeles car accident lawyers and wrongful death attorneys assist car accident victims and other personal injury clients obtain compensation for their clients’ property damage, actual medical costs, and future medical care, loss of earnings and pain and suffering, among other damages. It is crucial for drivers to obtain uninsured motorist coverage in order to avoid the risk of not being able to recover damages from the liable party.
Mr. Mesriani adds that although there are penalties imposed against violators of traffic rules and regulations, it doesn’t change the fact that the victims of these vehicle accidents caused by unlicensed drivers are placed in worse position than car accident victims of licensed drivers because of the added difficulty of claiming damages against the insurance companies of those unlicensed drivers and against the parties at fault themselves due to lack of coverage.
“The serious injuries resulting from automobile accidents cannot all be determined at the onset and the car accident victim may need future surgery and further therapy and rehabilitation and in my years of experience in dealing with insurance companies, they rarely agree to voluntarily cover the future medical care of car accident victims injured by their insured,” the experienced car accident attorney said.
Mr. Mesriani said that his top personal injury law firm works closely with medical experts to determine the extent of injuries suffered by victims of car accidents, premise accidents and other accidents to determine the complete medical treatments needed by their clients and decide the actual value of their cases. The recent DMV study helps the firm’s Los Angeles car accident lawyers prepare in negotiating and demanding the highest compensation for every personal injury victim’s present and future medical expenses and non-economic damages. The firm’s experienced auto accident attorneys also utilize other experts such as accident Reconstructionist, biomechanical, vocational experts and economists in order to establish liability and damages while aggressively pursuing personal injury claims on behalf of their clients.
