In Long Beach, California, a 27 year old man was killed because he lost control of his car, a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse, when he sideswiped another vehicle, a 2011 silver Ford Edge. His car veered into oncoming traffic and the car ultimately hit into a concrete and metal sign. The driver was found dead in the car, but no one else was injured. The accident caused major traffic backup on the Pacific California Highway. It remains unknown if the driver was driving while under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident. However, the investigation remains ongoing.
When someone has been in an accident, insurance companies do not offer to pay a lot. At best, they will seek to pay as little as possible when handling a car accident injury claim. When you contact an insurance company about your claim after an accident, do not allow the conversation to be recorded. This is because the insurance company can use these communications against you to claim that you were not hurt or that your injuries were not the result of the current accident you need coverage on. Given these things to look out for, it is important to get an experienced personal injury attorney to handle these kinds of conversations on your behalf.
