At about 10:39 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, one person was seriously injured in a three-vehicle collision in Banning. The crash occurred on the 10 Freeway east of Highland Springs Avenue. Firefighters extricated one person from the wreckage, and the victim was transported to an area hospital to receive treatment for major trauma. A second person refused medical attention. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“California law ensures that those who are injured in motor vehicle collisions for which they were not at-fault may pursue compensation for recovery-related expenses from the negligent party,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis.
Forty-four motorists were killed or injured in collisions that occurred in Banning in 2010, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. The OTS ranked Banning 82nd out of 93 cities for the number of fatal and injury crashes that occurred there that year; 1st place is the worst possible ranking. Statewide, 2,720 people lost their lives in accidents.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the person who was seriously injured in the three-vehicle collision.
Additional information on the injury claims process is available to the public free of charge through our office.
