On May 14th, 2015 there was a tragic Los Angeles car accident on the 210 Freeway in Pasadena. The accident involved a big rig truck and a silver sedan. From the overview, helicopter footage we cannot tell the exact make and model of the vehicle. From the video below it is clear the vehicle someone ran into the back of the big rig trailer. Unfortunately, the driver of the sedan was pronounced dead at the scene.
“Sadly, there was nothing they could do for that one person inside that vehicle,” said one of the officers at the scene. These types of accidents are known as fatalities because of the severity. Los Angeles motorcycle accident lawyer Hussein Chahine has had to field many phone calls after car vs truck accidents. “These accidents can cause major injuries to drivers of smaller vehicles. Some of the most common injuries are spinal cord injuries and head and neck problems. If you have been injured in a car accident we strongly suggest getting medical attention as soon as possible.”
Therein lies a problem for some Los Angeles residents. After a car accident authorities encourage all those injured to go to the hospital and sometimes the emergency room. An emergency room visit can be very costly for those that do not have medical or health insurance. Mr. Chahine explained that his law firm has relationships with doctors and medical professionals that will work on a lien, or loan, basis so those that are injured can get the proper medical care. This means those that were injured due to the negligence of another driver are not punished or penalized because they do not have health insurance.
