Ten people suffered minor to major injuries in a San Clemente multiple-car accident that occurred on the afternoon of June 15‚ 2011‚ on Interstate 5 (I-5). According to CHP‚ a Dodge driver travelling north near Avenida Pico rear-ended a Nissan traveling ahead of him in the fast lane. The impact of the collision was so strong that the Nissan moved into the next lane‚ where it struck a Mercedes-Benz.
All six occupants in Nissan were immediately transported to Mission Hospital for treatment. All the four occupants in the Dodge‚ driven by a 43-year-old man were taken to UCI Medical Center. Fortunately‚ there were no fatalities in this high-speed crash.
From the available information‚ it appears that the Dodge driver is responsible for causing this pile-up. He failed to brake when traffic began to slow down. If the investigating officers find that a traffic violation occurred or that the Dodge driver was speeding‚ then he might be held liable for the injuries suffered by all the victims.
The injured victims should consult with an experienced Orange County traffic accident attorney to learn about their legal rights and options. A car crash lawyer will also help the victims obtain a fair and timely compensation to cover treatment‚ hospital and medical costs‚ loss of wages‚ loss of earning capacity‚ and other accident-related expenses.
Our personal injury law office sincerely hopes that all the victims fully heal.
