At about 4:15 a.m. on Sunday, July 14, one person was seriously injured and two others suffered minor trauma in a crash on Interstate 10 near Desert Center. The two-vehicle collision occurred on the eastbound side of the freeway east of Eagle Mountain Road. Emergency responders flew one victim to the hospital to receive treatment for major trauma. The other two victims were transported via ambulance. Authorities are investigating the crash.
“Under California law, those who have been injured in a car accident may file personal injury claims against the at-fault party in order to obtain compensation for the cost of their recoveries,” explained California car accident attorney James Ballidis.
The California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current accident data indicate that 11,417 people were killed or injured in motor vehicle collisions in Riverside County in 2010. The OTS ranked Riverside 46th out of 58 counties for its incidence of fatal and injury crashes in a rating system in which 1st place is considered the worst. Statewide, 2,720 people lost their lives in traffic accidents that year.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the three people who were injured in the crash on Interstate 10.
