Sacramento Accident

Sacramento Solo-Car Crash into House Kills Driver

By San Diego Car Accident Lawyer on July 25, 2011 - Comments off

Sac Car Accident The driver of a small compact car died in a car crash that occurred on July 21, 2011, around 10 p.m. at 15th Avenue of Franklin Boulevard. According to Sacramento police Lt. Steve Winton, the vehicle crashed through a wrought iron fence, crossed over about 150 feet of a parking lot and landed halfway into a house. The crash caused a gas leak that firefighters had to shut off before they could pull the victim out of the vehicle.
The injured motorist was immediately transported to UC Davis Medical Center to receive treatment but was pronounced dead within few minutes of arrival. Fortunately the woman who was inside the house was not injured. It becomes the responsibility of the investigating officers to determine what made the car driver veer into the apartment.
There are several questions here. Did alcohol or drugs play a part? Was the driver 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? If it is found that the motorist lost control of the vehicle due to an automobile failure, then the auto maker will be held liable for victim’s wrongful death.
The victim’s family members should immediately seek counsel from a Sacramento car wreck lawyer who would educate them about their legal rights and options. An experienced auto accident attorney will help the 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.
Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved the victim for such a heart rendering loss.

Rollover Car Accident Kills Sacramento Woman

By San Diego Car Accident Lawyer on September 23, 2010 - Comments off

Jeanna Simington, 40, from the North Highlands neighborhood of Sacramento, was killed in a rollover car accident on September 23, 2010, around 4:05 a.m. at westbound Interstate 80 (I-80) approximately 400 miles north of San Diego in Northern California. Simington was driving her black colored 1992 Nissan Pathfinder and lost control when she turned into left direction.
Simington’s car crossed the westbound lanes and struck the center median with such an impact that the car overturned many times before it came to rest. This auto accident blocked two westbound lanes of I-80. Simington was pronounced dead at the accident scene.
Simington was wearing her seat belt and it is unclear what made her lose control of the vehicle. It is unknown whether drugs and alcohol were the factors behind this fatal car crash. However, given the time of day that this happened, it is likely that drugs, alcohol, or sleep deprivation played a role in this traffic collision.
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. Regardless of the facts, the Simington’ s family should consult a Sacramento personal injury attorney to determine if there are any facts which would suggest that the accident was the cause of someone else’s negligence. The lawyer may also hire detectives and investigators to find the exact cause of the wreck before vital clues are lost.
If this accident occurred due to bad road condition or any mechanical fault, then Simington’s family might be eligible for a compensation to cover the cost of funeral and burial, loss of earnings, and loss of love and compassion.
