Hector Hernandez Hernandez, 31, Killed in Tejon Hwy, Panama Ln Crash

Bakersfield, CA – On the evening of Wednesday, February 28, 2024, 31-year-old Hector Hernandez Hernandez of Arvin died in a solo-vehicle collision with a wooden telephone pole, according to KBAK.

Around 11:09 PM, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) received word of the accident on Tejon Highway north of Panama Lane.

Alcohol is suspected to have been a factor in Hernandez losing control of his Honda, which was traveling southbound when he left the Tejon Highway, overturned, and crashed into a telephone pole before coming to a rest on its roof in the intersection of Tejon and Panama.

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 single-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.
