At about 9:15 p.m. on Sunday, March 3, two women were seriously injured in a crash in Bellflower. While traveling westbound on the 91 Freeway, the female driver veered from the road. She and her female passenger were ejected from the car. Emergency responders transported them to an area hospital to receive treatment for major trauma. The CHP is investigating the possibility that another vehicle caused the woman’s car to leave the freeway.
“After a crash causing injury, the victims may file personal injury claims against the negligent driver in order to pursue compensation for the cost of their recoveries,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis.
Bellflower accounted for 1 of the 346 fatalities and 346 of the 62,881 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in crashes that occurred in Los Angeles County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety compares the accident data of cities with populations of a similar size, ranking those with the poorest records the highest, with 1st place being the worst. That year, Bellflower ranked 39th out of 103 cities for its incidence of fatal and injury collisions.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the two women who were seriously injured in the crash.
