Situated along the picturesque coast of Southern California, just a stone’s throw away from the hills of Hollywood, is the city of Oxnard.
The most populous state in Ventura County, Oxnard is positioned roughly 30 miles to the west of Los Angeles’ city limits, and is part of the greater Los Angeles area. Despite its proximity to Los Angeles’ urban sprawl, Oxnard remains a fairly quiet and safe community, with crime rates far below the national average.
Oxnard features nearly 40 square miles of Southern California’s most scenic terrain, and is home to roughly 205,437 people. Not only is Oxnard the largest city in it’s respective county – it also ranks among the largest cities in the state of California, breaking the top 20 at number 19.
The community is also known for its affluent residents and scenic landscape, and has been one of the wealthiest communities in the country, historically. While it is today home to some of the state’s wealthiest elite, Oxnard has previously been home to the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Pat Sajak, Sonny Bono & Cher and the Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl.
Oxnard also happens to be one of the major transportation hubs in the Southern California region, serving Amtrack, Greyhound, Union Pacific, Metrolink and Intercalifornia. The area is also home to a large volume of automobile drivers, who regularly utilize the region’s bustling roadway system.
Automobile Accident Lawyers in Southern California
Automobile accidents are a common occurrence. When they happen, drivers are often shaken and upset, and filled with uncertainty and anxiety. They don’t know what to do, especially right after the collision.
The most important step after an automobile accident is getting the other driver’s information. This includes a copy of the driver’s license and insurance information. It is also best to get the name of the other driver’s insurance agent and the license plate number. Since the advent of mobile phones, many drivers photograph these documents, as well as the crash scene, to document what happened. Also, you should obtain the identity of witnesses and photograph the damage to the vehicles.
Another thing that anyone involved in an accident should do, and many do not, is contact the police. We have found that even if the accident is minor, the authorities should be notified, as a report lends a greater deal of credibility to the Case. Down the line, if the police have been notified, it will make it much more difficult for the responsible party to claim that the accident did not happen, the accident was minor, and that no one suffered any injuries.
Seeking the help of a qualified personal injury attorney is also important. Regardless of the severity of the incident, you need to know and protect your rights.
