Three Hospitalized In 3-Car Long Beach Crash

On behalf of The Law Offices of Howard Kornberg Posted in Car Accident

A few weeks ago, we saw an accident happen near Cal Heights that hospitalized three people and left a car smashed into a fire hydrant.

Long Beach police say that a red Toyota Prius was heading south on Lemon Avenue when it hit a gray Toyota Corolla that was heading through an intersection. They say it appears that the driver of the Prius ran a stop sign.

After the collision, the Corolla smashed into a fire hydrant and hit a light pole before hitting a business. While we are thankful that there were no serious injuries or fatalities in this accident, we know it could have been much worse.

Why did the driver run the stop sign? Were they distracted?

We know that negligent drivers are a problem on our roadways. If you need a Long Beach car accident attorney, you can count on the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg to be by your side.

What Can Happen?

We know that when you get out in your vehicle each day you take every measure you can to be safe. Unfortunately, you cannot control the actions of other drivers around you. California saw 3,623 traffic collision fatalities and 11,492 serious traffic injuries in the latest reporting year. These numbers are high.

If we take a look closer to home, Long Beach had 2,551 people injured or killed during the same year.

We know that there are some accidents that occur in which there is nobody to blame, but we also know that there are times when other drivers’ negligence contributes significantly.

In that same reporting year, there were 1,059 alcohol-impaired driving fatalities. Drunk drivers continue to plague California roadways and those responsible should be held accountable. This can include anyone who continued to serve someone alcoholic beverages after that person was already visibly impaired.

Distracted drivers are becoming more and more of a problem as technology spreads from our cell phones to our watches, dashboards, and even wearable glasses. Drivers who are looking at a text message or watching a video are a danger to those around them.

Californians continue to rate aggressive driving and speeding as their top safety concerns on the road.

Regardless of how someone’s negligence causes an accident, we know that injuries can become expensive and people often find that they are not able to afford their accident-related expenses, even after an insurance settlement.

What You Can Do Now

If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you need to seek legal assistance. We know how expensive accident-related costs can become and we want to make sure you are compensated fairly. You can count on the experienced team at the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg when you need help.
