At about 7:50 p.m. on Wednesday, July 25th, 10 people were injured in a chain reaction collision on the 110 Freeway in South Los Angeles. The crash, which involved four vehicles, occurred at Adams Boulevard, the impact ejecting some of the occupants from the vehicles. Paramedics transported 9 of the 10 injured to hospitals, their trauma ranging from moderate to major. One person declined to receive treatment at a hospital. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
“When vehicle occupants are hurt in an accident, the at-fault driver may be held liable for their medical bills, as well as for lost earnings and pain and suffering that occurred during their recovery,” explained California car accident attorney James Ballidis.
In Los Angeles County, traffic accidents claimed the lives of or caused injury to 71,010 people in 2010, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. Comparing the accident data of 58 counties in the state, the OTS ranked Los Angeles 15th for traffic safety; 1st place is the worst a county may receive.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the 10 people who were injured in the chain reaction crash in South Los Angeles.
