Los Angeles Hit-And-Run Car Driver Kills Elderly Pedestrian

By San Diego Car Accident Lawyer on November 25, 2010 - Comments off

Gae Sum Park, 81, was killed in a fatal Los Angeles hit-and-run car accident that occurred on November 20, 2010 around 2:30 a.m. According to California Highway Patrol officers, this fatal pedestrian accident occurred at the intersection of Olympic and Harvard Boulevards in the Koreatown neighborhood of Los Angeles, approximately 125 miles from San Diego.
Officials stated that Park was walking outside of the marked crosswalk at the time of the fatal car accident. Park sustained severe body and head trauma and was pronounced dead at the accident scene.
Police believes that Park was struck and killed by a hit-and-run vehicle, probably a Toyota 4Runner. We trust that this hit-and-run driver will soon be apprehended and brought to justice. It is illegal under California law to leave the scene of accident. This driver should have remained at the scene, waited for the authorities to arrive, and helped the injured victim in any way he could. He was required to stop irrespective of whether the accident was his fault or not. But, he chose to drive away from the scene, leaving Park dying in the street when he could have provided help and assistance. This makes us believe that the accident must have been his fault and was probably afraid to face the charges and ran away.
If the hit-and-run car driver is ultimately caught, Park’s family could be entitled to compensation for their loss if the accident is deemed the driver’s fault in any way. In California, the driver does not need to be 100% at fault to be held responsible. He is responsible for the damages his own negligence and carelessness caused. He would be held liable to pay the pedestrian’s family with compensation to cover the cost of funeral and burial, loss of love and compassion, and other accident related damages.
Park’s family should consult an experienced Los Angeles County car accident lawyer who will hire trained detectives to investigate the cause of this accident and search for the driver’s insurance policies and assets to pay for the loss of their mother and grandmother. We offer our sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved Park for such a heart rendering and upsetting loss.

Los Angeles Car Accident Along Hollywood Freeway

By San Diego Car Accident Lawyer on October 3, 2010 - Comments off

Several people suffered minor to major injuries in a Los Angeles car accident that occurred on September 29, 2010 morning. California Highway Patrol officer Francisco Villalobos reported that this auto accident occurred on the eastbound 101 Freeway at Van Nuys Boulevard, approximately 100 miles north of San Diego in the San Gabriel Valley.
Villalobos said that this traffic collision involving at least two cars resulted in several injuries, but the extent of the injuries is still unknown. Two lanes remained close following the fatal car crash and were reopened at 4:38 a.m. An investigation is ongoing to determine the exact cause of the car wreck.
There is limited information available at the time of this posting about how this freeway accident occurred. There are several unanswered questions here. Who caused the accident? Who was at fault? Did alcohol or drugs play a part? Was one of the drivers fatigued at the time of the crash? Was speed or distraction a factor? Was there an auto defect or mechanical malfunction that caused the driver to lose control? We trust that officials are looking into these and other issues in order to determine how or why this auto accident occurred.
Victims of negligent drivers often face substantial financial hardships in addition to their physical injuries. In such cases, accident victims can seek compensation to cover medical expenses, loss of wages, cost of hospitalization, pain and suffering, and other related damages.
It would also be in best interest of injured victims to talk to an aggressive Los Angeles car accident lawyer as he will be able to advise victims and their families about their legal rights and options.
We sincerely hope and pray that none of the injured victims sustained life threatening and all of them recover to their health completely.

Elderly Rosemead Man Killed In Los Angeles Rollover Car Crash

By San Diego Car Accident Lawyer on August 16, 2010 - Comments off

A 75-year-old Rosemead man died on the morning of August 15, 2010, at around 6:00 a.m. when he crashed his minivan on an off-ramp of the 110 freeway. California Highway Patrol officer Dane Norem said that this fatal car crash occurred on Slauson Avenue in South Los Angeles.
CHP officials found a 1993 Nissan Quest lying on its side on Slauson Avenue. The driver of the minivan was thrown out of the vehicle and was pronounced dead later. It is believed that the 1993 Nissan veered to the left crashing into a wall before coming to rest after several spins.
We express our sincere condolences to the family and friends of this elderly driver who died in this fatal car accident. Investigating authorities are still searching for the true cause of this fatal crash. Unfortunately, it is unclear from the facts of the story why the accident occurred. There is a possibility that the auto accident may have been the result of a mechanical defect or design issue. It could have also been the result of an uneven road surface. Regardless of the facts, the victims’ families should consult with a Los Angeles personal injury attorney who can hire a trained private investigator to investigate how the accident occurred and to determine if there are any facts which would suggest that the accident was the cause of someone else’s negligence, that would entitle them for a compensation to cover the cost of funeral arrangements, loss of love and companionship and other related damages.

Culver City Car Accident Caused By Suspected Hit-And-Run Driver

By San Diego Car Accident Lawyer on June 24, 2010 - Comments off

Brandon David Brown, 31, died in a car accident on June 20, 2010, when his Toyota Tercel struck a SUV that stopped in the north bound lane of the 405 Freeway (I-405, the San Diego Freeway) near Culver City. According to the CBS news report, Brown died at the accident scene after driving his vehicle to the rear side of the SUV.
California Highway Patrol Officers said that the SUV driver ran from the scene of accident without attending to Brown. Authorities are looking in for that suspected hit and run driver and his vehicle.
We offer our deepest condolences to Brown’s family and friends for such a tragic and devastating loss. We hope that the California Highway Patrol officers are able to trace that hit and run driver and are able to bring in some justice for the Brown family. The family of the deceased may be entitled for compensation to cover the cost of funeral, loss of earning, loss of love and companionship and other related damages. The driver not only caused the auto accident but also committed a felony by running away from the scene of accident leaving Brown to die. According to California Vehicle Code Section 20001(a), a driver of a vehicle involved in an accident resulting in death or injury must stop and remain at the accident scene. The clear purpose of this law is to make sure that the responsible party contacts the people injured in an accident and provides them with assistance. There are few acts worse than leaving the scene of an injury auto accident.

Santa Clarita Car Accident Leaves Teenager and Police Officer Injured

By San Diego Car Accident Lawyer on June 21, 2010 - Comments off

Two people, including a Garden Grove teenager, sustained injuries in a Santa Clarita car accident on June 15, 2010. According to the Orange County Register report, the traffic collision took place at the intersection of Stevenson Ranch Parkway and Pico Canyon Road. The car crash occurred when Jessie Frutos, 17, driving his Mercedes Benz E55 drove right into the path of a car driven by a Los Angeles Sherriff’s Patrol, Deputy Blake Carpenter, 24, and caused a head-on collision.
Frutos was heading east on Pico Canyon Road when either he or Officer Carpenter failed to give the right of the way to each other. The police investigation is still in progress to determine the exact cause of this collision. If the officer is found to have been negligent, he and/or his employer can be held liable for the cost of Frutos’ hospitalization, treatment of injuries, and other related expenses. California law requires drivers to give the right of way to oncoming vehicles and to vehicles who have already entered the intersection from a different road.
We wish both the injured victims a speedy recovery and hope that they did not sustain any major injury.
