A truck accident involving two other cars this morning on a section of I-5 known as the "Grapevine" near Gorman, CA has unfortunately led to the loss of two lives, with several others life-flighted from the scene. CHP is still investigating the accident and at the present time the cause is unclear. Any time a big rig and automobiles become entangled at higher speeds the sheer forces involved usually lead to serious injuries and wrongful death. My thoughts are with the victims of the accident this morning, as well as their families. Those who are critically injured face a long road ahead, and their care and well being are the focus at this point.
From a legal perspective, accidents involving semi-trucks or tractor trailers are complicated and require extensive legal expertise and preparation. It is important to seek legal advice in these cases as soon as possible so that a thorough investigation of the scene, vehicles and witness statements can be completed to preserve important evidence. It will take time for the full ramifications of this accident to come to light. In these situations, I work to take all of the legal and insurance related burdens from the family's minds so that they may focus on helping their loved ones to heal.
