Downtown Los Angeles: Car Accident Killed Passenger Brandon Krock, Injured Five
Posted on Jun 15, 2012
At about 11:45 p.m. on Thursday, June 14th, a car accident killed 30-year-old passenger Brandon Krock and injured five people in downtown Los Angeles. The crash, which involved a blue Honda and a white Scion, occurred in the 500 block of North Figueroa Street. Paramedics transported the five injured people to a hospital, four of them to receive treatment for major trauma. Authorities are investigating the collision.
“After an accident resulting in serious or fatal trauma, the victims may seek compensation from the negligent party for their injury-related expenses through the civil justice system,” explained California personal injury lawyer James Ballidis.
Motor vehicle collisions claimed the lives of 32,310 people in the United States in 2011, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s statistical projection for that year. Although nationally crash fatalities declined by 1.7 percent from the previous year, in California the incidence increased by 3.3 percent.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Brandon Krock, the passenger who was killed in the car accident last night. We would also like to wish a full recovery to the five people who were injured.
