DUI Crash in Fontana Leaves 4 Dead & 2 Hospitalized

Our lawyers are currently investigating the possibility of personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits against all responsible parties for an accident that occurred August 4, 2017.

There was a violent collision on the eastbound 10 near Cherry Avenue in Fontana which killed four people and injured two others. Police are investigating a possible DUI crash, according to the California Highway Patrol.

A woman was driving a Honda four-door sedan and had stopped on the side of the road because her car was overheating. A short time later, a white pickup truck violently smashed into the back of the Honda, killing four of its occupants.

The two survivors, the woman who owned the Honda and the pick-up truck driver sustained minor injuries and were taken to the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. One of the victims was thrown out from the vehicle as first responders recovered a body from the other side of the concrete barrier next to the freeway.

Authorities are trying to determine if the driver of the pick-up truck was under the influence at the time of the crash. Evidence of substance abuse was found in the vehicle.

Damages Available to You
Damages is the monetary compensation which is awarded to the plaintiff (the one making the claim) and is paid out by the defendant (the one defending themselves from the claim). When you get into a car accident, you may be entitled to receive damages for the injuries you sustained as well as any compensation for any property of yours which was damaged in the car accident. Below are the types of compensation to which you may be entitled:

  • Bodily Injury – Injuries which you sustained because of the injury may require that you get immediate medical attention. You can receive compensation for the medical bills you receive which, in the U.S.A., can be painfully expensive.
  • Change in Lifestyle – The injuries which you receive may leave you permanently disabled which will lead to a change in lifestyle. You can receive compensation to cover the change in lifestyle. For example, you may require a wheelchair after you accident – the accident can help cover the costs of such a wheelchair.
  • Lost Wages – Your injuries may force you to miss work. You can receive compensation for the number of hours you lost at your regular non-overtime rate of pay.
