The Calabasas Patch is reporting that last Wednesday Kris Jenner, of the well known Kardashian family, was involved in a car accident in Calabasas. The Calabasas car accident occurred in the early afternoon right near Calabasas Road and the Parkway Calabasas freeway off-ramp. The Calabasas accident actually happened very close to our personal injury law office, which is also located on Calabasas Road.
Fortunately, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which handles car accidents in Calabasas, neither the other person involved in the car accident or Kris Jenner had to be transported to the hospital by ambulance. Other details of their injuries from the accident were not presently available.
We all remember when Kaitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, was in a serious car accident on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, which caused the tragic wrongful death of a woman from Calabasas.
We wish to advise our readers that if you are involved in a car accident that is not your fault, if you are able to, you should call the police to help you in the situation and so that they write a traffic collision report, also known as a police report, which can be very helpful in a personal injury claim or lawsuit. The police report will identify the parties, provide their contact information, give statements of any witnesses and will usually issue an opinion as to fault. The opinion as to fault is usually not admissible in court, as the officer is not typically a witness to the crash, but it still can be helpful in getting compensation on the claim.
It is important to remember that the opinion of the officer as to fault is important, but it is not always correct. Our personal injury lawyers have been successful in many cases where the police report has placed our client at fault.
