Lamont, CA — According to KGET, on the night of Saturday, February 3, 2024, a fatal car crash outside the Lamont courthouse left at least one person dead.

The California Highway Patrol first received reports of the collision at 8:20 PM and sent officers to the site on Weedpatch Highway, just outside the Kern County Superior Court building.

The circumstances leading up to this tragic collision remain unknown at this time.

Wrongful Death Claims

While no amount of money can bring back those who lose their lives in a vehicular fatality, the emotional burden of their loss is often accompanied by a financial burden that falls on their surviving family members.

A wrongful death claim filed with the insurance provider of an at-fault driver can provide compensation to help cover medical expenses, burial costs, and even the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.

However, because insurance companies carry the incentive to reduce the payout for any claim they cannot deny, the services of a skilled personal injury attorney can prove crucial in securing justice for the deceased.
