One injured in Anaheim Car Accident

By Brian Chase on November 2, 2011 - No comments

At least one person was injured in an Anaheim car accident involving two vehicles. According to a news report in The Orange County Register, the crash occurred at the intersection of Burbach Street and Orangethorpe Avenue, the morning of November 1, 2011. Officials say the injury collision involved a Ford F-150 and a Honda Passport. One person was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries. An investigation is ongoing.

I sympathize with the victim of this car accident. I wish this person the very best for a speedy and complete recovery.

Car Accident Statistics

According to California Highway Patrol’s 2009 Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), there were 23 fatalities and 1,970 injuries involving Anaheim car accidents. During the same year, 141 people died and 13,373 were injured due to Orange County car accidents.

Possible Stop Sign Violation?

Based on this news report, it is unclear as to how or why this injury crash occurred. It is not known at this point if one of the drivers failed to stop at the stop sign on Burbach. California law requires drivers to come to a complete stop at a stop sign and proceed with caution. According to California Vehicle Code Section 21802 (a): “The driver of any vehicle approaching a stop sign at the entrance to, or within, an intersection shall stop as required by Section 22450. The driver shall then yield the right-of-way to any vehicles which have approached from another highway, or which are approaching so closely as to constitute an immediate hazard, and shall continue to yield the right-of-way to those vehicles until he or she can proceed with reasonable safety.”

Liability Issues

In such cases, the at-fault motorist can be held liable for injuries and damages caused. Injured victims can seek compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, cost of hospitalization, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Injured victims would be well advised to contact an experienced Anaheim personal injury lawyer, who will analyze all facets of the incident and ensure that the negligent parties are held liable. The best personal injury law firms will always offer a free consultation and comprehensive case evaluation to car accident victims and their families.
