At about 2:30 a.m. on Thursday, February 21, two people were killed in a collision with a tree in Burbank. While traveling on North Glenoaks Boulevard near Cabrini Drive, a sport utility vehicle swerved from the road and slammed into a tree, the impact causing it to ignite into flames. The two occupants died at the scene. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“California law ensures recourse through the civil justice system for families that have lost loved ones in traffic accidents,” explained California car accident attorney James Ballidis. “If a vehicle occupant is killed in a collision for which he or she was not at-fault, the victim’s family may file a wrongful death claim in order to hold the negligent party liable for their loss.”
Burbank accounted for 3 of the 346 fatalities and 600 of the 62,881 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in traffic accidents that occurred in Los Angeles County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, thirty-one of the collisions occurring between 9 p.m. and 2:59 a.m. resulted in injury or death in the city.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the families of the two people who were killed in the collision.
