California wrongful death: Man killed in rollover crash

A car accident can happen at any moment. Because of this potential, drivers in California and across the country must remain vigilant at all times. Failing to do so could have serious consequences, potentially even resulting in a wrongful death.

Unfortunately, the California Highway Patrol is investigating a recent accident that resulted in a fatality. The incident happened one evening on a day in early August. Police claim that as the vehicle entered a curve, the 48-year-old driver allowed it to drift into oncoming lanes of traffic. To avoid a collision, police say, the driver turned sharply, causing him to lose control of the vehicle.

The pickup truck then left the roadway, where it went down an embankment, rolling several times. It ultimately came to a rest on its wheels between two trees. While the driver is said to have only suffered minor injuries, his 63-year-old passenger passed away; a CHP officer claims that there was major damage on the passenger side of the vehicle. Both men were wearing their seatbelts, and neither drugs nor alcohol appear to have been a factor.

Unfortunately, even a slight moment of inattention can have catastrophic consequences. This accident has left a family coping with the news of the unexpected, preventable death of their loved one. It may also leave them struggling financially as a result of lost wages and funeral expenses. As a result, they may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver. An experienced professional can examine the details of their case and help them create an appropriate plan of action.
