3 Hospitalized in Critical Condition after Canoga Park Car Crash on N Canoga Avenue
Canoga Park, California (May 23, 2020) – The Los Angeles Fire Department said three people were hospitalized in critical condition Friday night after a car crash in Canoga Park.
According to LAFD, two people were working on a parked car in the 7901 block of N Canoga Avenue when, at around 11:46 p.m., another vehicle crashed into that car.
Firefighters responded to the scene and extricated one person who was trapped under the vehicle.
The two people working on the parked car and the driver of the other vehicle were hospitalized in critical condition. Their identities were not mentioned.
There were no other details available.
The Los Angeles Police Department – Topanga Division is investigating the crash.
When a car accident occurs, the responsible party will be required by law to compensate the victims for medical expenses, lost earnings, and future loss of earnings or medical care. In serious accidents, the responsible driver may be held accountable for paying non-economic damages, including emotional trauma, pain, and suffering.
Mark Shayani, the Managing Attorney at Pacific Attorney Group, says determining where liability lies is not direct and straightforward due to varying factors being involved and the fact that most people will want to avoid responsibility even when they were at fault. Additionally, the insurance companies that cover the car that will be found at fault will want to reduce the amounts to be offered as compensation to the lowest levels possible.
“It is of the utmost importance that you do not give any statements or admit fault if approached by the other driver’s insurance company. Anything you say could be used against you at a later date when the liability of the collision is determined.” Shayani said.
Mr. Shayani advises victims of car accidents or their family members to seek legal help from a seasoned attorney who can conduct an independent investigation and fight for their rights.
