Sadly, a married couple from Murietta died on October 16, 2017, when they were involved in a car accident in Riverside, California. According to the Los Angeles Times, Dennis Carver was driving a 2010 Mercedes when he went off the roadway and crashed, killing himself and his passenger, his wife Lorraine.
Dennis and Lorraine were at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas when a shooter fired at the festival from the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. In that tragic incident, 58 people were killed. The deceased couple leaves behind a 16 year old daughter.
This sad incident occurred on Avenida de Arboles in Murietta, which is located in Riverside County. Our California personal injury lawyers handle auto accident injury and wrongful death cases all over California, including in Riverside. We handle many cases in Riverside and our attorneys are very familiar with the Riverside County courthouses, which have local rules that must be followed on their cases.
In this particular incident, it will need to be investigated to see if another vehicle did something to cause this crash. In addition, there could be a roadway design problem that contributed to causing the accident. In those situations, an experienced wrongful death lawyer is needed to investigate the circumstances and figure out who is liable for the wrongful death damages. Proving a roadway design defect is very difficult and expensive, so it must be handled very carefully from the beginning, including by filing the relevant government claim or claims.
Our office handles all personal injury and wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not get paid anything unless and until we win your case. This is a huge advantage for people that cannot afford to pay an attorney by the hour to compete against billion dollar insurance companies with unlimited resources to fight them.
