A 14-year-old girl along with a 1-year-old boy suffered serious injuries in a San Diego car accident that occurred on November 24‚ 2010‚ around 3:00 p.m. Both the victims were travelling in an SUV that made a turn and went off an embankment along Interstate 8 (I-8) and overturned.
According to the California Highway Patrol‚ the SUV was travelling eastbound when it spun out of control and rolled down an embankment near the Texas Street exit. The teenage girl was sitting in the front passenger seat of the car at the time of the auto accident‚ while the boy was sitting in the back seat. The injured girl was immediately transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. The injured toddler suffered cuts to his arms and legs and was rushed to a hospital for treatment. The driver of the car fortunately did not suffer any serious injuries in this car accident.
It is unclear what made the car driver lose control of the vehicle and made such a turn that lead to this serious car accident. The relationship between the children and the driver is also unclear. If it is found that the car driver lost control due to any automobile failure‚ design defect‚ or an uneven road‚ then he and the other injured victims will be eligible to obtain compensation from the car manufacturer and the government entity that is responsible for the roads. On the other hand‚ if it is solely determined that the driver of the car was negligent‚ then the injured girl and toddler can seek compensation for their medical care‚ hospital treatment‚ loss of earnings‚ and pain and suffering. The parents of the injured children should seek advice from an experienced San Diego car accident lawyer who would advise them of their legal rights and help them obtain the compensation they deserve.
We sincerely hope and pray that the injured victims did not suffer any life threatening injuries and that their injuries heal soon.
