Negligence while driving often leads to serious car accidents

Every day, California news stations report on serious traffic accidents that forever change the lives of those involved. Car accidents can occur in just about any manner, though ignoring traffic control signals is a common recipe for disaster. Sadly, four people recently lost their lives after a driver ran a red light.

Sheriff's deputies in one California county were called to the scene of a two-car collision. According to law enforcement officials, a driver operating a passenger car was traveling westbound along a local road while nearing an intersection. For reasons that are unclear, that motorist ignored a red traffic signal and continued on through the crossroads. At that time, his vehicle struck a second car that was traveling northbound. 

The impact forced the second vehicle into the stop light pole. All three occupants of the second car were ejected. Two, a woman and a man, were pronounced deceased at the scene. The third person as well as the driver of the first car where transported by emergency crews to a local medical center. Unfortunately, both later died.

Two dogs were also in the second car. The first one died at the scene, while the other one was later euthanized. The families of the victims are understandably devastated by the loss of their loved ones. Families who have suffered these types of tragic losses due to car accidents are often burdened by the monetary damages that typically follow these horrific events. With the help of a personal injury attorney, they can pursue recovery of their losses from the estates of the party or parties deemed at fault via a wrongful death lawsuit.
