Car accidents can cause emotional and financial devastation

Traffic laws are in place to keep California drivers safe. These laws dictate the speed at which an individual can drive, when one driver can pass another and even what side of the highway one should remain on. In addition, there are laws in place to guard against individuals driving after they have had too much to drink. Even with the numerous traffic laws that govern how individuals operate vehicle, car accidents occur on a daily basis.

These laws, however, can only protect individuals when they are adhered to. In one recent case, it appears that a southbound driver in Santa Clarita Valley chose not to adhere to a number of California's traffic laws. Apparently, as she was driving, she veered too far to the right, hit the curb and then overcorrected and entered into the lane of traffic heading north.

This action resulted in a three-car accident that claimed the life of one individual and required another to be transported to a local hospital. When officers arrived, the individual believed to be driving the southbound car was sitting on the side of the road. Additionally, empty containers that appear to have contained alcoholic beverages were discovered in her car.

Car accidents do more than simply inconvenience those involved. All too often, they cause emotional and financial devastation when they claim the life of a loved one. In a situation such as this one, it is possible that the victim and/or the victim's family will file suit in an effort to begin the recovery process. Experienced legal counsel can assist in reviewing the case and then presenting it to the California courts.
