Visalia, CA – According to KSEE, on the evening of Tuesday, January 6, 2024, a single-vehicle collision in the vicinity of Millcreek Parkway and Manzanita Street resulted in the death of the driver.

Around 5:40 PM emergency responders found the vehicle had crashed into a tree in Visalia and shattered into pieces. They pronounced the driver dead at the scene. Investigations have not yet determined whether driver impairment played a factor in the accident.

Wrongful Death Claims in Single-Vehicle Collisions

The compensation provided by a wrongful death claim can help relieve grieving families of the financial burdens associated with the loss of a loved one in a vehicular fatality, addressing medical expenses, burial costs, and even the loss of income to support dependents of the deceased.

In some circumstances, investigations can reveal that some portion of the liability for a single-vehicle collision might fall upon other drivers in the vicinity of the accident or even unsafe roadway structures. Working through the particulars of liability to help those who have lost a loved one find proper compensation for their loss is one of the many services a personal injury attorney can provide.

Once liability has been established, a personal injury attorney can also negotiate on behalf of the victim with insurance companies, who will always seek to minimize the payout for any claim they cannot deny.
