Morgan Hill, CA – According to NBC Bay Area News, a devastating multi-vehicle collision resulted in the loss of life on northbound Highway 101 on Tuesday, June 11, 2024.

The accident occurred around 9:15 PM near the Cochrane Road exit and resulted in the closure of the freeway for several hours, causing significant disruption for commuters, as confirmed by California Highway Patrol (CHP) reports. Just before 1 AM on Wednesday, all lanes were successfully reopened.

According to initial reports from CHP, the collision involved a big-rig, a pickup truck, a motorcycle, and other vehicles of unspecified types. The nature of the crash and the specific circumstances leading to the tragic outcome are still under investigation, with authorities working diligently to gather pertinent information.

Wrongful Death Claims

Establishing fault in a collision can depend on multiple factors. One crucial way a personal injury attorney can assist grieving families is by determining legal liability after the loss of a loved one in a traffic accident.

If another party is found to hold some responsibility for the death, the family may be eligible to file a Wrongful Death claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider. This claim can provide compensation to help cover hospital fees, burial costs, and the loss of support for the deceased’s dependents.
