3/19/2012At around midnight on Friday, March 16th, two people were seriously injured in a head-on crash in North Hills. While traveling eastbound on Parthenia Street, a Buick sedan veered into opposing lanes of traffic and collided head-on with a Mitsubishi SUV, the impact causing the driver of the Buick to sustain trauma to the face, chest, and ribs and the driver of the Mitsubishi to suffer broken ribs, a bruised lung, and fractures to her femur and sternum. Authorities do not believe alcohol was a factor and are investigating the accident.
“In California, when one driver’s negligence causes an accident that harms another, the at-fault driver may be liable for the victim’s property damage and injury-related expenses,” explained personal injury attorney James Ballidis.
In 2009, 390 motor vehicle occupants were killed and 64,178 were injured in traffic crashes in Los Angeles County, according to the California Highway Patrol's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records Sytem. Compared to that year, there where 11.9 percent fewer traffic fatalities in the state in 2010, 3,081 versus 2,715, the lowest level recorded since the federal government began tracking traffic fatalities in 1975.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish the two drivers who were seriously injured in the head-on crash in North Hills a full recovery.
