At about 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 27th, a broadside collision in Perris injured eight people. While exiting the parking lot of a post office located at E. 4th Street and Redlands Avenue, a driver pulled out in front of another vehicle and was struck. Paramedics transported eight vehicle occupants to a local hospital, their injuries ranging from minor to moderate. Authorities are investigating the crash.
“After a collision, those involved may pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault party for expenses associated with their injuries,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis, “such as for medical bills, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.”
Perris accounted for 5 of the 172 fatalities and 221 of the 10,963 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in collisions that occurred in Riverside County in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Comparing the number of fatal and injury crashes in 104 cities with populations ranging in size from 50,001 to 100,000, the California Office of Traffic Safety ranked Perris 56th in a rating system in which 1st place is considered the worst.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the eight people who were injured in the broadside collision yesterday.
