Fatal Car Accident in Mission Viejo Leaves One Dead

This past Wednesday, there was a fatal car accident in Mission Viejo that left one city resident dead. The two car accident occurred near the intersection of Alicia Parkway and Lanzarote. The fatal accident took the life of one Mission Viejo resident, and left the other party hospitalized with very serious injuries. The cause of the accident is still under investigation, and it has not been determined who, if anyone, is at fault. At the Law Firm of Rivers J. Morrell our thoughts go out to the deceased’s family.

A fatal accident caused by another person’s negligence is known as a wrongful death in California.  My name is Rivers Morrell and I have represented the families of those who lost their lives in an accident due to someone else’s fault or negligence.  We manage all communications with the insurance company and the Court so that your family may focus on grieving your loss, and comforting one another.

What should you do if you are involved in an accident?  The first thing people should think of when they are involved in a major car accident, is to seek immediate medical attention for themselves and their loved ones involved in the accident. Afterwards, many people are left confused on what to do next. They may call their insurance agent for guidance, and to repair their property damage. However, when it comes to medical expenses and other out of pocket expenses, insurance companies are typically much less helpful. Insurance companies are quick to deny liability, or to offer very little to compensate injured parties for their damages.  For this reason, it is essential that people understand the importance and value that an attorney can bring them for their claims.

Insurance company’s primary objective is to provide as little payment in settlement of claims as possible. That is the insurance adjuster’s primary goal, and they are quite good at playing “hardball” and forcing non-representing claimants into accepting settlements way lower than the value of their actual claims.
