Chula Vista Auto Accident | Personal Injury Lawyer in San Diego Attorney

Eileen Dominque Miranda‚ 18‚ was killed in a fiery car accident on September 25‚ 2010‚ around 5:15 p.m. along Interstate 805.  According to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s office‚ Miranda was one of the several passengers who were travelling in a southbound sedan that struck a ravine.

The sedan driver apparently lost control and the vehicle hit a ravine and burst into flames. One of the passersby performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on Miranda until the paramedics arrived. Medical officers later pronounced Miranda dead at the accident scene. Six other people suffered serious injuries and were transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Based on the limited information available about this auto accident‚ the cause of the accident is not clearly understood. It is not clear who was driving the car‚ how fast the car was travelling‚ and why the car collided with the ravine. This traffic collision raises a number of questions about what happened and why‚ and who was responsible. The investigation by the California Highway Patrol will hopefully provide answers as to what happened and who was responsible for this horrifying crash.

In situations such as this one where a passenger is the victim of a fatal auto accident‚ the family members of the victim might benefit from speaking with a knowledgeable Chula Vista car accident attorney. A car accident lawyer can help Miranda’s family understand and protect their legal rights to compensation for their loss in a wrongful death claim‚ including damages for funeral and burial expenses‚ predictable future earnings of the decedent‚ loss of love‚ care and companionship.

We express our sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved Miranda for such a tragic and devastating loss. We also hope that the injured victims are able to recover back to their complete health soon.
