Rain And High Speeds Lead To Tragedy

Posted By The Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno, P.C. Posted in: Car Accident.

18-January-2019

There are times when accidents are unavoidable. The rain that has pounded San Diego recently has caused so many accidents as people have hydroplaned, even when driving as safely as possible. There are other times, though, when other people’s negligence causes accidents. The other day, one man lost his life on Interstate 5 and police say that high speeds contributed to the incident.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the driver of a pickup truck crashed into the center divider before he was struck by two more vehicles. The pickup truck driver then got out of his vehicle when he was hit by one of the other vehicles.

When driving in bad weather, most people take precautions and drive slower. Unfortunately, in this case, people were still driving too fast for conditions. At the Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno, we know that there are many hazards that people face when they are out driving and often those hazards revolve around driver negligence. If you are hurt and need a San Diego car accident attorney, you can call us today.

The Hard Statistics

This is a state with a large population. Because of that, we see hundreds of thousands of traffic accidents that cause injuries each year. The most serious ones (and there are more than 12,000 of those in the latest reporting year), result in catastrophic injuries:

  • Spinal cord injuries with paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal bleeding or organ damage
  • Major soft tissue damage

The costs of these injuries can reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars quickly. Spinal cord injuries can reach a million dollars. Why should a victim and their families suffer financially because of another person’s negligence?

We know that these accidents are often caused by:

  • Drivers who speed and are aggressive, like the story above shows.
  • Impaired drivers on drugs or alcohol.
  • Distracted drivers busy on their phones.

Choosing An Attorney

When you are involved in an accident, it is important that you choose an experienced attorney. We think it is important to find a team that:

  • Will focus on you and your needs
  • Knows California traffic law
  • Will thoroughly investigate your case
  • Can talk to insurance companies
  • Go to trial if necessary
