A San Diego woman was killed last week in a five-car pileup in San Ysidro. Shella Pagsanjan was a retirement home nurse and was preparing to celebrate her 45th birthday.
Her coworkers said that, on the day of the crash, Pagsanjan was planning a potluck dinner for the next day for her birthday.
According to authorities, she was driving her Mercedes coupe in the slow lane when traffic in front of her stopped. A Dodge Ram behind her “did not see that traffic came to a stop and was unable to stop his vehicle,” said the Medical Examiner’s Office.
There were minor injuries for other people involved in the accident, but nobody else was killed.
This incident highlights some of the dangers that drivers in and around the city face every day. Do you know where to turn if an accident like this happens to you?
If you need a San Diego car accident attorney, you can count on the Eugene Bruno & Associates to be by your side, working to secure the compensation you need.
We know that there are hundreds of thousands of vehicle accident-related injuries in California each year, but we want to focus on some important numbers from the latest reporting year:
In San Diego for the same year, there were over 9,000 injuries (minor and major) and fatalities.
Many of these injuries required people to have extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. Some people were permanently disabled. This brings a few questions up:
Will your insurance cover all of these expenses?
If you miss work, will you receive compensation for lost income so you can pay your household bills and support your family?
Careless and reckless driving behavior often results in traffic-related accidents. Speeding and aggressive drivers are always a major cause for concern on our roadways, especially in and around cities.
We know that drunk drivers caused 27 percent of all traffic-related fatalities in the latest reporting year.
We also know that distracted drivers, those who continually look down at their phone screens, are a danger to everyone around them.
If you or a loved one have suffered an injury during a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, we advise you to seek legal assistance as soon as possible.
