What happens to your loan if your leased vehicle is involved in an accident and is a total loss? Previously, as the leasor of the vehicle, you would be entitled to keep any equity the vehicle may have when the total loss loan is paid to the lien holder. However, finance companies are now writing into their contracts that they get to keep any equity in the vehicle, leaving you without a car or a down payment to put into a new car. What do you think? Are these new practices fair?


2022 Was One of the Deadliest Years in Two Decades in Terms of Traffic Fatalities.

2022 was one of the deadliest years in two decades in terms of traffic fatalities. 300+ people were killed in auto accidents in Los Angeles alone.

Most of the fatalities were pedestrians and bicyclists. Distractedness was listed as the number one reason for pedestrian accidents.

This year, experts expect these numbers to increase due to California’s new Freedom to Walk Act, which allows pedestrians to legally jaywalk “with caution.”

Please always remain alert and exercise caution when on the road.

If you know anyone who is hit by a car as a pedestrian or cyclist, our team is ready to assistant them. Contact us today.

The onboard computer can be helpful in providing speed and evasive maneuvers after a wreck – which is helpful specifically in truck accidents.

It is important to preserve this evidence as soon as possible following an accident.
