45-year-old Cayetano Aguilar Martinez of La Puente died in a solo car wreck that occurred on August 15‚ 2011‚ around 1:01 a.m. along Highway 60 in Chino. According to California Highway Patrol Officers‚ Martinez was a passenger in a 1996 Toyota Corolla that spun out of control‚ hit an embankment and finally overturned. The right side of the vehicle struck a tree‚ which impacted Martine’z head.
The driver 22-year-old Jose Martinez suffered minor bruises and scratches. 43-year-old Juana Martinez was also a passenger and was ejected out of the car. He suffered critical injuries. Both the injured victims were immediately transported to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center to receive medical treatment.
From the limited available information‚ it is unclear what made the driver lose control of the vehicle. If the loss of control was due to uneven road‚ mechanical failure‚ or another car‚ the victims may be entitled for compensation. If the driver was reckless‚ he may be liable. The deceased’s family members should immediately consult with an experienced San Bernardino County car collision lawyer who would stay abreast with the official investigation and make sure that the negligent parties are held liable.
The injured victims can also file a personal injury claim to cover for medical and hospital costs‚ loss of wages‚ and other accident-related damages.
Our law office offers sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved the deceased for such a tragic loss. We also pray that the injuries suffered by both the victims heal soon.
