1 Dead, 2 Injured in California Car Accident

Casper, Meadows, Schwartz & Cook

A car accident that occurred in California on June 29 caused the death of one person and injuries to two others. According to the report, the incident occurred on Garfield Boulevard in Montebello at approximately 2 a.m.

Police stated that a white Chevrolet truck was heading south on Garfield Boulevard when the driver of the vehicle lost control. The truck then struck a parked black Ford just south of Madison Avenue. The impact of the collision caused the death of the driver of the truck and injured the two other occupants who were passengers in the truck. The extent of their injuries was not known. It was not known if alcohol played a part in the crash, but it was not being ruled out.

Car accidents have the potential to cause serious injuries or even death to those involved. For example, a person may suffer injuries such as broken bones, traumatic brain injury or damage to internal organs. Even if the injured person survives the incident, the injuries may leave the person with permanent disabilities that may keep them from being able to work, and that may decrease their quality of life.

Those who have suffered a serious injury in a car accident may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against the person or persons who were accused of causing the incident. In the event of the responsible party's death, such as in this particular case, the lawsuit can still be filed against the responsible party's estate. This type of lawsuit may allow the injured person to seek compensation for medical bills that were incurred during treatment and income that was lost.
