Shortly before 11 a.m. on Sunday, May 12, a passenger was killed in a rollover accident in Mountain Pass. While traveling northbound on Interstate 15, a motorist veered from the road about two miles south of Nipton Road. The vehicle overturned, fatally ejecting the passenger. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
“After a fatal traffic accident, the family of the victim may file a wrongful death claim against the negligent party in order to obtain compensation for their loss,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis.
In 2010, traffic collisions claimed the lives of 59 passengers and caused injury to another 4,056 in San Bernardino County, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The California Office of Traffic Safety ranks counties with the poorest accident records the highest, with 1st place being the worst. That year, San Bernardino ranked 36th out of 58 counties.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of the passenger who was killed in the rollover accident.
