At least one person died in a serious three-car collision that occurred on July 11, 2011, around 1:47 p.m. on Highway 18 (SR-18) at Mescalero Road in High Desert.. According to the responding California Highway Patrol Officers, this fatal accident occurred near the Los Angeles County line.
From the present information, it is unclear what caused this major car accident that involved 3 vehicles. Since it was a multiple-vehicle car accident, any of the drivers involved may be responsible for causing the accident. It would be interesting for the investigating officers to determine whether any of the drivers was driving under the influence of alcohol or any other drug. Though the investigation is in process, the victims should consult with a Los Angeles County car accident lawyer to know about their legal rights and options.
An experienced car crash lawyer will help the deceased’s family members obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, loss of anticipated income, loss of love, care and companionship, and other accident-related damages. The personal injury attorney would work in cooperation with the investigating officers to assure that the at-fault party is apprehended and brought to justice.
Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved the victim for such heart rendering loss.
