Burbank Personal Injury Lawyer

The city of Burbank is approximately 12 miles northwest from downtown Los Angeles and is known as being the “Media Capital of the World”. Situated only a short distance away from Hollywood, the area is home to a number of media and entertainment companies including The Walt Disney Company, NBC, Warner Bros. Entertainment and Cartoon Network Studios.

As of the 2010 US Census, the city was home to well over 100,000 people. Many of these individuals commute to work by bike via the Chandler Bike Path and other passageways on a regular basis to get to work, go to the market, and to reach other destinations.

If Another Vehicle Causes You Injury While You Are Cycling

If you have been involved in a crash with a vehicle, another cyclist or a pedestrian, it is important that you do the following:

  • Wait for law enforcement to arrive. The police will take and file a police report which can help your claim.
  • Write down your version of events. As soon as you are able, make notes about what happened and take pictures of the scene and your injuries.
  • Obtain contact information. Get the names, addresses, and phone numbers of drivers, cyclists, pedestrians and witnesses.

    C&D was there to answer any and all of my questions. They handled everything from the moment I was assigned until recently to which the case was closed...I would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.
