Carson Car Accident Lawyers

Restoring Justice to LA County's Families

Carson, CA lies in the South Bay area of Los Angeles County, roughly 13 miles south of Downtown LA.

Though the city is known for its factories and oil refineries, Carson also houses more than 92,000 people, who enjoy the area’s proximity to the Pacific Coast.

Unfortunately, however, the busy thoroughfares that traverse the city, such as Interstate 405, make Carson one of the more dangerous cities in LA County to drive in.

In 2018 alone, there were 442 car accidents reported within the city, resulting in four deaths and more than 600 injuries, according to a state database. Though most of the accidents took place on the 405, other dangerous roadways in the city included 220th Street, Avalon Boulevard, Carson Street, Main Street, and Wilmington Avenue.

Carson, CA Car Accident Statistics

Sun Valley Los Angeles Freeway

Though Carson enjoys a relatively low population density of 4,955 people per square mile, it remains an extremely busy driving area. It lies near the busy 110 and 405 freeways, and many commuters pass through the city on their way to downtown Los Angeles, Long Beach, or the Orange County beach cities.

As a result, Carson experiences many car accidents. In 2018 alone, 442 accidents occurred in Carson, causing 606 injuries and four deaths. The types of crashes in Carson can be broken down as follows:

  • Rear-end accidents: 36%
  • T-bone crashes: 28%
  • Sideswipes: 14%
  • Head-on collisions: 7%
  • Striking an object: 7%
  • Striking a pedestrian: 6%
  • Rollover accidents: 1%

The high proportion of rear-end accidents in Carson may result from distracted commuters traveling through the city to reach other destinations. Crashes were most likely to occur during the afternoon rush hour on Thursdays or Fridays.

The most significant proportion (34%) of crashes were caused by speeding, followed by right-of-way violations (17%), disobeying traffic signals (10%), and improper turning (10%).

The Dominguez Channel is a small river that, like this one, is mostly a concrete wash.

PARRIS Law Firm Fights for Carson Residents

If you live in Carson, you may have heard of the PARRIS Law Firm before. Our firm is currently pursuing litigation for those who suffered injury due to the foul odors from the Dominguez Channel that disrupted the lives of Carson residents in October 2021. 

City and county officials did not react quickly enough to determine the cause of the noxious odors, leaving many residents to spend money out of their own pockets in search of relief. It has since come to light that the rotten egg smell came from many gallons of hand sanitizer that spilled into the channel after a warehouse fire, killing all the channel’s vegetation. 

PARRIS Law Firm has gained a reputation for fearlessly representing victims of environmental disasters in Southern California. The firm took on SoCal Gas in the wake of the 2015-16 Aliso Canyon gas leak, eventually securing a monumental $1.8 billion settlement for Porter Ranch residents in 2021. We currently represent hundreds of El Segundo residents exposed to hydrogen sulfide in the wake of the 2021 Hyperion sewage spill and those impacted by a methane leak from the Sun Valley Generating Station.

Whether environmental pollutants or a vehicle collision threatens your livelihood, the PARRIS Law Firm will be there for the residents of Carson when you need a legal advocate on your side.

Success Record

Our teams routinely secure verdicts and settlements worth millions of dollars for victims of accidents. Here are a few of their stories:

  • PARRIS obtained a monumental $120 million verdict for a man who suffered major injuries when his truck rolled over following a T-bone collision. The at-fault driver was on her cell phone at the time of the accident, but the defense counsel attempted to avoid handing over her phone records throughout the case. After the judge sanctioned the defense multiple times for their conduct, the jury awarded our client and his family $120 million.
  • Another PARRIS client suffered life-changing injuries when a distracted driver T-boned his family’s car while he was a passenger. Our client was rendered a quadriplegic who will need daily medical care for the rest of his life. The fight for his rights ended up in a courtroom, where a jury awarded our client and his family $41.6 million.
  • PARRIS secured a $10.6 million verdict for the family of two brothers killed in a tragic wrong-way collision on the 405 freeway. The brothers were on their way home from a music gig in Los Angeles when the defendant, who had been traveling south in the northbound carpool lane for four miles, hit them head-on. PARRIS fought valiantly for the family, who was devastated by the loss of their parents. At trial, a Los Angeles jury awarded the family $10.6 million for their losses. 
  • Another individual suffered serious injuries when he was rear-ended by a big rig in Chatsworth, CA. After his vehicle rolled over three times, he suffered major neck and back injuries that altered the course of his life. Though the defense tried to settle, we pushed through and fought for our client, eventually securing a $7.4 million verdict on his behalf.
PARRIS has won many awards for our exceptional victories for clients.

Find Out What You Can Recover

How do I know if I need an attorney after an accident?

Deciding whether or not to pursue legal action after an accident can be a difficult choice for some. You may view the legal process as a headache, or you might just want to put the whole ordeal behind you.

However, hiring an attorney after your car accident is nearly always the best choice to protect your rights. This is because the insurance companies you will need to deal with after your accident will not be working in your favor.

It’s up to the at-fault driver’s insurance company to offer you a settlement for the damages you suffer in a car accident. While it might be tempting to accept the first offer that comes your way, this offer is often less than the true value of your claim. 

An insurance company has the primary goal of settling cases for as little as possible to save their company money. Sometimes insurance adjusters may act in bad faith to reduce the amount they pay you. Unfortunately, these tactics may rob you of the compensation you need to restore balance to your family.

This is why PARRIS fights so fiercely for victims of car accidents. The Carson car accident lawyers at PARRIS Law Firm know how to negotiate with an insurance company—and they know when the time for negotiating might be over. 

If you want a fighter on your side, then call us today to discuss your case for free.

What types of car accident injuries might affect my future?

The vast majority of injuries from car accidents are minor. But it only takes one severe injury to alter the course of your life forever. Some of the most common car accident injuries include:

  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Bruises, sprains, strains, and other soft tissue injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones
  • Dislocated joints
  • Herniated spinal discs
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries

Unfortunately, untreated minor injuries can develop into major medical conditions in some patients. For example, chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) can appear in the wake of otherwise treatable car accident injuries, such as sprained or dislocated joints. These conditions are more common in older adults and women.
