California authorities say that a speeding driver caused a fatal three-car accident that also left another four people injured. There were two fatalities, including the driver believed responsible for the wreck. A 3-yer-old boy and a 6-year-old girl also suffered critical injuries.

The 20-year-old man who apparently caused the accident was speeding on the highway and passing people on the shoulder of the road right before the accident. He later lost control of his vehicle and spun into the opposite lane of traffic, where he struck another vehicle head-on. The force of the impact caused the second vehicle to roll onto its roof. The speeding driver’s vehicle kept going until it hit a second vehicle.

There were three passengers in the first car that was hit, including the two children. were taken by air to an area hospital in critical condition, while the other passenger — a 28-year-old woman — suffered only minor injuries. The driver of this vehicle died at the scene of the accident, as did the speeding driver. The driver of the second vehicle was also injured.

Recovering from critical injuries takes time and extensive medical treatment. The average person in California may not have the financial resources to achieve that recovery. Filing a personal injury claim is one way to possibly remedy this situation. When a victim successfully pursues a lawsuit to completion, he or she may recover compensation essential to recovery.

Vehicle Accidents

There are two things to establish in any motor vehicle accident case: the cause of the accident (fault) and the full cost of the injuries and losses. As we prepare your case, we will investigate both of these.


& Serious Injuries

People suffering from a brain injury, spinal cord injury or other severe injury will require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitative therapy and other long-term care.


Abuse & Molestation

Claims related to sports and recreation injuries can be complicated. These cases often include issues involving waivers and the “assumption of risk” defense.


& Spine Injuries

When you or a loved one suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI), life changes dramatically. Even mild TBIs can lead to years of recovery and rehabilitation.
