Bakersfield, CA – According to KBAK, on the morning of January 14, 2024, a solo-vehicle crash on Highway 99 resulted in the death of two men now identified as 48-year-old Aaron Keith Sink of Bakersfield and 18-year-old Rodolfo Pulgarin Monarrez.

Around 4:07 AM, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) was called to the crash site on Highway 99 near Wible Road. There they found that Monarrez had been driving a Ford southbound on 99 when he lost control of the vehicle, striking a guard rail and then colliding with a concrete pillar.

Wrongful Death Claims

The liability insurance that drivers carry is not just meant to cover accidental harm caused to those outside of the vehicle. A driver is responsible for the safety of those in their vehicle as well. While making a wrongful death claim against someone who knew the victim personally may prove emotionally challenging, the financial burdens left to a grieving family by the loss of a loved one can be hefty.

A good personal injury attorney can help grieving families seek proper compensation for the loss by navigating these tricky issues, as well as negotiating on the victim’s behalf with insurance companies, who routinely work to minimize the payout of any claim they cannot deny.
