San Diego Car Accident Kills Scooter Driver | CA Injury Attorney Lawyer

Alex Gilliam Jr.‚ 53‚ was struck and killed in a fatal San Diego auto accident that occurred on November 24‚ 2010‚ around 5:15 p.m. According to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office‚ Gilliam was riding his scooter across East Chase Avenue when a westbound car struck his vehicle.

Gilliam was immediately transported to Sharp Memorial Hospital for treatment where he was pronounced dead some time later.  From the present information‚ it is not clear as to what caused this fatal scooter accident. Was the car driver distracted? Was he speeding so that he was not able to apply breaks in time to prevent the collision? Something certainly went wrong on the car driver’s part that took the life of the scooter driver.

Gilliam’s family members can file a wrongful death claim against the inattentive driver to obtain compensation to cover for funeral and burial costs‚ loss of love and compassion‚ loss of future earnings‚ and other accident related damages.

Gilliam’s family should receive a free consultation from an experienced San Diego personal injury lawyer who can advise them of their legal rights and options and seek timely and fair compensation. Our law office offers our sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved Gilliam for their loss.
