An 18-year old Anaheim man was killed in a serious car wreck that occurred on September 24, 2011, around 2:40 a.m. on Highway 91 (US-91) in Corona. According to the Riverside County Coroner’s office, the victim’s vehicle struck a guard rail, rolled over, and then struck the concrete pillar of an overpass.
The motorist was pronounced dead at the accident scene. The investigation is still being conducted on. Unfortunately, it is unclear from the facts of the story why the accident occurred. There is a possibility that the 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.
As for now, the deceased’s family members should seek counsel from an experienced Riverside County car accident lawyer who can hire a trained private investigator to find out how the accident occurred and determine if there are any facts which would suggest that the accident was the cause of someone else’s negligence.
The victim’s family members can file a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party to obtain compensation to cover funeral and burial costs, loss of anticipated earnings, loss of love, care and companionship, and other accident-related damages.
Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved the victim for such a heart rendering loss.
