Two Fatalities And An Injury In Recent Crash

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

February 1 2019

The evening of January 21 turned out to be tragic on state Route 76 in Vista. At around 6:30 p.m., a 40-year-old man was driving his Chevy pickup truck eastbound when he swerved to avoid hitting a Hyundai Sonata that was stopped for traffic at an intersection.

The crash was severe. The truck smashed into the rear of the Hyundai, which was sent into the back of a Mazda in front of it. Two women inside of the Hyundai were pronounced dead at the scene and a man in the vehicle sustained major injuries.

Police say that they do not think drugs or alcohol were involved.

At the Simpson Law Group, we will be watching this story because we want to know what caused this crash. Why did the man in the Chevy not notice that traffic was stopped in front of him? Was he driving too fast?

If you need a San Diego auto accident lawyer, our knowledgeable and experienced team will work diligently to secure the compensation you need.

How Does This Happen?

So many of the major accidents that happen on our roadways are preventable. While we do not yet know what caused the accident we discussed above, many similar accidents are caused by distracted drivers. Any time a driver is paying more attention to things inside of the vehicle (phones, other devices, people) than the roadway, accidents are likely to occur.

We know that speeding and aggressive driving is also a major contributor to accidents, but perhaps the worst cases of driver negligence revolve around drinking and driving.

Did you know that 27% of all fatal accidents during the latest reporting year were due to alcohol-related incidents?

This is a populated state and for many places, tourists are here all year round. This leads to many dangerous and deadly car accidents. For the latest reporting year, there were:

  • Over 12,000 serious injuries
  • Over 3,500 fatalities

The serious injuries can be spinal cord trauma, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, and more, all of which will lead to extraordinary medical costs. Often, victims of car accidents need long-term rehabilitation and extended care as they work towards recovery. This can mean they are not able to work and earn an income.

What We Will Do Now

In the aftermath of a vehicle accident, we know things can get confusing, especially if there are injuries involved. We advise you to seek legal assistance if someone else was at fault. Insurance companies will try to settle quickly and often try to trick you into taking a lower settlement than you really deserve. When you contact the Simpson Law Group, we will have your back. Our team will work diligently to secure the compensation you deserve for all of your accident-related expenses, from medical costs to pain and suffering damages.
