Fresno County, CA – According to KFSN, on the morning of Tuesday, February 27, 2024, a solo-vehicle crash left one dead and another injured.

Before 5:30 AM on Clarkson, near Del Rey and Kingsburg, a Chevy Malibu driven by a 19-year-old left the road and struck a utility pole.

Emergency responders had the driver airlifted to Community Regional Medical Center. Unfortunately, the vehicle’s 24-year-old passenger did not survive their injuries and was declared dead at the scene.

It has not been stated whether intoxication may have played a role in the crash.

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.
