On the morning of Sunday, March 31, a car crashed into a Wal-Mart in San Jose, injuring four people. The driver, a man in his 30s, drove 10 to 20 feet inside the store and then began attacking customers with a blunt object. According to a witness, customers tried to restrain the man. After a short struggle, police were able to arrest him. Four people received medical attention, one for major trauma. Authorities are investigating the attack.
“When a motorist harms others, the victims may seek compensation for the expense of their recoveries through the civil claims process,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis, “such as for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
Throughout San Jose, 3,588 people were killed or injured in traffic accidents in 2010, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current statistics. The OTS compares the accident data of cities with similarly sized populations, giving those with the poorest records the highest rankings, with 1st place considered the worst. That year, San Jose ranked 12th out of 13 cities for traffic safety.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the four people who were injured when the car crashed into the Wal-Mart.
The Los Angeles Times originally reported this San Jose attack.
Additional information on the civil claims process is available to the public free of charge through our office.
