Ventura Car Accident Attorney

Car Accident Attorney Ventura

When a car accident results in injuries or death it is always tragic. When the crash occurs because someone was driving while intoxicated, it can be even more frustrating as these accidents are totally preventable.

Recently, KTLA News 5 reported that a rear end collision occurred in Ventura County just outside of Oxnard. A 2017 Nissan Rogue was stopped at a red light when a 2000 Lexus RX300 slammed into the back of the car. The force of the collision sent the Nissan into the center median, and the Lexus flew off to the side of the road.

The crash caused significant damage to the vehicles and harm to those inside. Those in the Nissan included a 41-year-old woman and a 14-year-old boy. Emergency personnel responded, but the woman died at the scene. The young boy was taken to the hospital with major injuries.

Officers are still investigating what caused the Lexus to collide with the Nissan, but they believe the driver was likely driving under the influence. She also suffered major injuries in the incident, and was later “placed under arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence.”

If the investigation confirms that the driver was driving under the influence, the driver will face criminal charges. However, in addition to criminal charges, the driver will be civilly liable to those she harmed due to her decision to drive under the influence. Those harmed due to this incident should talk to a car accident attorney in Ventura to help them bring a civil claim against the driver. In this case, a couple different claims can be brought against the driver:

  • Wrongful Death Claim: The family members of the woman who died in this accident can bring a wrongful death claim against the driver responsible for the death of their loved one. A wrongful death claim can help the family members of the victim with the costs associated with the funeral and burial of their loved one, as well as the other damages such as lost wages and loss of companionship.
  • Personal Injury Claim: The young boy injured in this accident can also be compensated for his injuries. When a serious car accident occurs, the injuries are often much more severe. Not only do these types of injuries require costly hospital visits, but usually require a lengthy recovery process that often involves physical therapy. A personal injury claim can allow the victim to be financially compensated for medical costs, recovery expenses, as well as other damages such as pain and suffering and costs associated with mental health care required due to the accident.
