In the blink of an eye, a simple cruise down a highway or freeway can become a life-threatening incident. Traffic accidents, especially those that happen on high-speed throughways, can take your life. Even if you do survive, such a crash may cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in property damage, not to mention the extensive medical bills that may result from personal injury, as well as time off work to recover, which will probably not be paid, and the mental and emotional trauma that can last years after an accident. The families of victims suffer as well, be that from mourning the loss of a loved one or from taking care of survivors for months as they slowly recover, a recovery that often includes multiple doctor’s visits, sleepless nights, rigorous medicine schedules, and regular physical therapy sessions.
Take the example of a traffic accident that happened early last Friday morning, according to this report from NBC Los Angeles. A vehicle was involved in a roll-over crash. One person died as a result of this accident, which happened around 3 a.m., and California Highway Patrol found the vehicle in the embankment of eastbound 91 Freeway in Bellflower, near the Lakewood Boulevard off-ramp. No other details are known at this time, but authorities continue to investigate the cause of this accident.
