Humvee Rollover Causes Traffic Backup

Posted By Simpson Law Group LLP Trial Attorneys Posted in:Car Accident

November 23 2018

Last week, the eastbound lanes of Interstate 8 in East County were blocked for a while due to a five-car accident that was caused by a military Humvee.

While military vehicles are a common sight in and around San Diego, we do not often see one that has rolled over, but that is exactly what happened. Just after 5:30 p.m. last Sunday, a Humvee rolled and hit at least one other car. This set off a chain reaction that involved at least four other vehicles.

At the time this writing, no details had been released about injuries, but at the Simpson Law Group, we think this accident shows just how unpredictable our roadways are on any given day.

If you need a San Diego car accident attorney, you can turn to our trusted professionals for help.

Statistics for San Diego

Out of the thousands of vehicle accidents that caused injuries and fatalities in California in the latest reporting year, over 9,000 of those happened in San Diego. There are many vehicles in and around the city and the greater San Diego area and sometimes an accident is unavoidable. Oftentimes, though, an accident is caused by someone else’s negligence.

  • A driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol.
  • A driver is distracted by their phones.
  • A driver is driving too fast for conditions.
  • A driver failed to secure items in the bed of a pickup truck.
  • A driver failed to properly secure a trailer on their vehicle.

We know that all of these scenarios can leave a person with a major injury that requires extensive medical care. It is not uncommon to see the following serious injuries as a result of a vehicle accident:

  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Major lacerations
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries (possibly paralysis)
  • Traumatic brain injuries (concussions or worse)
  • Severe internal organ damage

Many of those injuries require long-term rehabilitation for a victim to make a full recovery. Some of them can permanently disable a person, leaving them in a situation in which they require lifelong medical care.

Will your insurance cover all of the expenses associated with these injuries?

What if you are not able to return to work and you no longer have an income to support your family?
