Los Angeles: Mike Feuer Seriously Injured in Car Accident
Posted on Dec 05, 2012
On Monday, December 3, former Assemblyman Mike Feuer was seriously injured in a car accident in Los Angeles. Feuer, currently a candidate for City Attorney, was driving to USC’s Galen Center to attend the swearing-in ceremony of District Attorney Jackie Lacey when the driver of a Chevy Tahoe failed to stop for a red light and struck the driver’s side of his Toyota Prius. Using the jaws of life, firefighters extricated him from the wreckage, and he was transported to an area hospital to receive treatment for fractures to his ribs, a pulmonary contusion, and a spleen laceration. A representative for Feuer conveyed to the Los Angeles Daily News that he was in an Intensive Care Unit and is expected to recover fully from the trauma he suffered.
“When a driver’s negligence results in an accident, those who were injured may file personal injury claims against that driver in order to obtain compensation for the cost of their recoveries,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis, “such as for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.”
The California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current data indicates that 72,010 people were killed or injured in traffic accidents that occurred in Los Angeles County in 2010, with LA ranking 15th out of the state’s 58 counties for its incidence of fatal and injury crashes in an OTS rating system in which 1st place is considered the worst.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to Mike Feuer.
