Shortly before 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 22, seven people were injured in a head-on crash in Perris. A Mazda Millenia and a Toyota Camry collided near the 500 block of Apache Lane. Emergency responders transported the seven victims to area hospitals to receive treatment for trauma ranging from minor to moderate. Navajo Road was closed in both directions between Apache Lane and Wigwam Road while authorities investigated.
“California law ensures that those who have been injured in a motor vehicle collision for which they are not at-fault may pursue compensation for the expenses associated with their recoveries,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis, “such as for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
In 2010, 148 people were killed or injured in traffic accidents that occurred in Perris, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. The OTS compares the accident data of cities with populations of a similar size, giving those with the poorest records the highest rankings, with 1st place considered the worst. That year, Perris ranked 92nd out of 103 cities for its incidence of fatal and injury crashes.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the seven people who were injured in the head-on crash in Perris.
Resources for accident victims, such as books and articles on the injury claims process, are available to the public free of charge through our office.
