What Caused This Fatal Car Accident?
Based on this news report, it is not clear how or why this fatal car accident occurred. Was there a vehicle defect or mechanical malfunction, which may have caused or contributed to this car accident? Was a dangerous roadway condition a factor? Were any other vehicles involved? For example, did Winters get run off the roadway by another vehicle? I trust officials are looking into these and other issues in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.
In cases where negligence or wrongdoing is involved, the family of a deceased car accident victim can file a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for medical and funeral expenses, lost future income, loss of love and companionship, and other related damages. The family in such cases would be well-advised to preserve the vehicle in its current condition, unaltered, so it can be carefully examined for design flaws, product defects, malfunctions and other evidence. An experienced Orange County personal injury lawyer will be able to better advise victims’ families about their legal rights and options.
