Shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Friday, March 23rd, an accident on the 101 Freeway injured seven people, one of them critically. The crash involved six vehicles and occurred at Reyes Adobe Road. Paramedics transported two people to the hospital for treatment. Authorities are investigating the collision.
“In California, those who are injured in motor vehicle accidents may pursue compensation for injury-related expenses from the at-fault driver,” explained California personal injury lawyer James Ballidis, “including the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
Agoura Hills accounted for none of the 390 fatalities and 83 of the 64,178 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic accidents in Los Angeles County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. In 2010, traffic fatalities in the state decreased by 11.9 percent, from 3,081 to 2,715.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the seven people who were injured in the 101 Freeway accident this morning a full recovery.
