Riverside County Crash Investigation
Police are reviewing the circumstances that caused this collision in an effort to determine liability. What we know is the vehicle overturned and it appears there were no other motorists involved. This could mean the driver is at fault. However, what caused the vehicle to overturn? Were there mechanical problems? A dangerous condition in the roadway? Did the collision cause the victim’s injuries or were faulty airbags to blame? These are all questions investigators will review to determine fault.
In a case such as this one, the surviving family members of those who have died may be able to file a wrongful death claim to recoup their financial losses. There are often medical expenses, lost wages, property damage and in the case of a death, funeral expenses. It’s important to note, however, that it’s quite common for insurance companies to try and avoid paying out a claim. They may also make an offer to settle for far less than the full amount owed.
