San Benito County, CA – A fatal collision occurred on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, just before 2 PM on Highway 156, east of Rocks Road, according to KSBW.

While investigations regarding details of the accident are still ongoing, the California Highway Patrol reports that firefighters responding to the crash site west of San Juan Bautista reported at least one death.

Wrongful Death Claims

Establishing fault in a collision can depend on multiple factors. Helping to determine legal liability is one of the ways that a personal injury attorney can help grieving families recovering from the loss of a loved one in a traffic accident.

If it is determined that another driver holds responsibility for their loved one’s death, they may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver. A wrongful death claim can provide compensation to help cover hospital fees, burial costs, and the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.
