Street-Racing Crash - Wrongful Death - Personal Injury

Illegal street racing has become a common practice in the streets of Southern California; unfortunately, too many of said races result in accidents causing property damage, bodily injuries and even wrongful death. The city of Woodland Hills, which is in the north of part of Los Angeles, was witness to a multiple-vehicle accident yesterday November 1, 2016, in what appears to have been the result of an illegal street race. Fortunately, no deaths resulted from said accident; however, several people sustained injuries and had to be transported to a nearby hospital. One of the vehicles involved, a 2015 McLaren 650S Spider worth over $300,000, which can reach speeds of over 200 mph, was totaled. It is incredible that no fatalities resulted from this wreck in light of witnesses account of 70 to 80 mph crash in a 25 mph school zone. The same cannot be said for the street racing in Woodland Hills on June 27, 2016 which resulted in multiple fatalities.

An illegal form of auto racing street racing on public roads commonly results in wrongful death of not only the drivers but often innocent bystanders. Just today, November 2, 2016, a street racing crash involving a twenty-three-year-old and 17-year old teenager resulted in the death of a three-year old girl in Philadelphia.

History tells the story of how three American companies began to produce muscle cars, high performance cars, to boost sales to youths, and due to lack legal racing tacks, public streets became the de facto venue for racing, hence the term "street-racing". It is believed that modern street racing is rooted in Woodward Avenue, Michigan, in the 1960s.

Victims of street racing wrongful death should promptly contact a competent experienced wrongful death attorney due to the complexity of the legal issues associated with street racing wrongful deaths, i.e. insurance companies refuse to pay damages for wrongful deaths caused by street-racing crashes arguing such deaths are the consequences of intentional reckless disregard for human life for which their insureds are not covered under their insurance policies. In other words insurance companies only pay damages for wrongful deaths caused by the negligence of their insureds and not by their intentional recklessness. Therefore, it is imperative to contact a seasoned wrongful death attorney to adequately investigate the facts surrounding a street-racing crash.

Palm Springs Tour Bus Crash - 13 Wrongful Deaths - 31 Personal Injuries

Automobile accidents are so common in Southern California that they hardly make the news, even when a wrongful death is involved, but this time was different, the worse deadly accident in California's history in so many decades with 13 dead and 31 injured. Who is to blame? No doubt the bus driver was negligent (unless he had a heart attack), he was careless and not paying adequate attention to the road and his driving. Alternatively he may have been reckless, sleeping, speeding, or even drunk driving, and thus acted with complete disregard for the safety of his passengers. However as in so many wrongful death cases other invaluable evidence comes to fore when a competent wrongful death attorney gets involved to pursue the wrongful death claims of the decedents' immediate relatives and families.

The accident was caused when the USA Holiday tour bus carrying passengers returning from a casino near the Salton Sea rammed into the rear of a semitrailer on the way home to Los Angeles. So what was the semitrailer doing at the time? It was apparently moving at a much lower speed than the tour bus. Why? The CHP officers had been slowing and stopping the traffic so that a Southern California Edison work crew could complete electrical wiring which had to cross the road way, i.e. the 10 Freeway. Probing into the cause of the accident, a capable and seasoned wrongful death attorney would diligently scrutinize the legal duty of care and whether it was breached by anyone else including the semitrailer driver, the CHP officers, and/or the Southern California Edison work crew, each of whom may have possibly contributed to the tour bus driver's negligence thus resulting in so many wrongful deaths and so many suffering from serious personal injuries. Consequently, a wrongful death trial lawyer's timely involvement is essential to the families of the victims who seek justice for the death of their loved ones.

Under the law monetary compensation is the only remedy for negligent wrongful act of a person or organization which has resulted in injury or death. The intent of the law is to make the victims whole again, in terms of money damages, however if the insurance policy of the tour bus is inadequate, which is most likely the case with 13 dead and 31 injured, reasonable attribution of liability to others, persons or entities, who may be determined to have had contributed to the cause of the accident may bring about an expeditious legal resolution to the wrongful death and personal injury claims.
