Individuals who ride as a passenger in a vehicle often have little to no control over the actions of the driver. Should the negligent actions of the driver cause a collision to occur, the passengers could end up being the ones who suffer the consequences. Three individuals have died and another suffered serious injuries in a recent car accident involving a single vehicle in California.

According to reports, authorities responded to the scene of a single-vehicle crash at around 1:45 a.m. on a recent Friday. Initial investigations suggest the accident occurred when for reasons unknown, the driver of a car suddenly lost control and veered off course. The car proceeded to collide with a nearby tree shortly after leaving the road.

Authorities have advised that three individuals were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, while another person was rushed to a hospital in critical condition. Although an investigation into the incident is underway, many of the details pertaining to the incident remain unclear. However, authorities have advised that speed may have played a role in the incident.

Suffering severe injuries or losing a loved one in a car accident due to the actions of another party is something no person should have to face. Those who experience such harm or loss under similar circumstances could choose to speak with an experienced attorney for guidance on their available legal avenues. An attorney can examine the incident thoroughly and assist a client in California in pursuing the compensation entitled through a claim against the party deemed at fault.

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.
