Laguna Hills Accident Lawyer

Laguna Hills is a beautiful suburban city in southern Orange County. Its name is derived from Laguna Canyon and Laguna Beach. Laguna Hills was built on a major land grant given to Spaniards during the rancho era. After Mexico earned its independence from Spain, the land was split up. Individuals, who served in the government or were friends with people of power, were given large land grants. These land grants were typically used for cattle grazing. Rancho Niguel along with Rancho Lomas de Santiago and Rancho San Joaquin, covered much of the western portion of Saddleback Valley. Rancho Niguel was owned by Don Juan Avila. Laguna Hills would later be built on part of this rancho.

Lewis Moulton later purchased rancho Niguel from Don Juan Avila. Moulton increased the grant to 22,000 acres. The land was later named Moulton Ranch. It was further divided in the early 1960s. Laguna Hills was built on one of these divided lands. It was later incorporated into Orange County in 1991.

Laguna Hills is bordered by the 5 freeway. The 5 is the main interstate highway on the West Coast of the United States. It runs through many of the larger cities on the West Coast. These cities include Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, and San Diego. The 5 also runs through many of the southern Orange County cities. This is the closest freeway to Laguna Hills. Unfortunately, the 5 freeway suffers from heavy traffic. The heavy traffic can increase risk of accidents. Accidents on freeways are often fatal. In 2010, there was a fatal accident on the 5 freeway.

Safety is important. To avoid car accidents, try to drive safely on the road. You should never drive impaired. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs will seriously affect your driving. You will have delayed reaction time and difficulty focusing. It is also important to focus on the road, while driving. Distractions can seem harmless, but a 5 second distraction can be deadly. During this distraction, you are basically driving blind. You could collide into another vehicle or even lose control of your vehicle.

It is also good to develop safe driving habits. You should also follow the suggested speed rate. Speeding has contributed too many fatal accidents. You also need to leave enough space between you and the car ahead. The driver in front may make a sudden turn or stop. If you donít have enough time to react, you may collide into the car.

If you are ever in a car accident, do not hesitate to contact a Laguna Hills car accident lawyer. Car accidents are often quite traumatic. Victims of car accidents often sustain serious emotional and physical injuries. Survivors of car accidents often require extended hospital stays and difficult physical therapy.
