It is unfortunate that thousands of people are hurt in traffic collision across California every year. The negligent motorists cause most of these accidents. Over speeding, driving under the influence, driving while using a cell phone, driving while tired; and violating traffic laws are avoidable factors.
According to P. Mark Shayani, an experienced personal injury attorney and managing attorney at Pacific Attorney Group, it is important to conduct a separate and independent investigation to determine the cause of the crash. Mark said that an attorney is needed to look for witnesses, conduct background checks and review applicable insurance coverage.
Awaiting the results of the investigation, the family of the victim may be entitled to a personal injury claim.
