Shortly before 8 a.m. on Saturday, October 27, seven people were injured in a collision between a limousine and a car in Hollywood. While in a parking structure in the 6500 block of Cerritos Place, the driver of a limousine accidently shifted into drive instead of reverse and struck a car, the impact sending both vehicles out of the structure and down a 20-foot hill. Authorities are investigating the crash.
“When a collision causes injury to those involved, the victims may hold the at-fault driver liable for the cost of their recoveries,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis, “such as for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
In 2010, motor vehicle collisions claimed the lives of 346 people and injured another 62,881 in Los Angeles County, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Los Angeles 15th out of 58 counties for its incidence of fatal and injury crashes that year; 1st place is the worst possible ranking.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the seven people who were injured in the collision between the limousine and the car.
