Fiery Solo-Vehicle Rollover Crash at Paladino, Neptune Dr Kills One

Bakersfield, CA – According to KBAK, on February 14, 2024, at Paladino Drive and Neptune Drive, a solo-vehicle crash in which a car flipped and caught on fire left one man dead.

Around 11:36 PM, emergency responders arrived at the scene to find the blazing wreckage and the car’s sole occupant, who was declared dead at the scene. Initial investigations suggest the driver was speeding westbound on Paladino, lost control of the vehicle, and struck the center median before rolling over and catching fire. It remains unclear whether driver intoxication was a factor.

Wrongful Death Claims in Solo-Vehicle Collisions

The compensation provided by a wrongful death claim can help relieve grieving families of the financial burdens associated with the loss of a loved one in a vehicular fatality, addressing medical expenses, burial costs, and even the loss of income to support dependents of the deceased.

In some circumstances, investigations can reveal that some portion of the liability for a solo-vehicle collision might fall upon other drivers in the vicinity of the accident or even unsafe roadway structures. Working through the particulars of liability to help those who have lost a loved one find proper compensation for their loss is one of the many services a personal injury attorney can provide.

Once liability has been established, a personal injury attorney can also negotiate on behalf of the victim with insurance companies, who will always seek to minimize the payout for any claim they cannot deny.
