Shortly before 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 21, a two-vehicle collision injured three people in Cabazon. The crash occurred at Seminole Drive and Apache Trail. Emergency responders extricated one person from the wreckage, transporting the victim to the hospital to receive treatment for moderate trauma; the other two people sustained minor injuries and were also hospitalized. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“When a collision results in injuries, the negligent party may be held liable for the expense of the victims’ recoveries,” explained California car accident attorney James Ballidis, “such as for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
Throughout Riverside County, traffic accidents claimed the lives of 164 people and injured another 10,594 in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Riverside 46th out of 58 counties with similarly sized populations for its incidence of fatal and injury crashes; 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 three people who were injured in the two-vehicle collision
