$300k Recovery from Multi-Car Collision - Adamson Ahdoot LLP

$300k Recovery from Multi-Car Collision

Our client was the driver of a vehicle traveling northbound in lane #1 of Antonio Parkway in an unincorporated city of Orange County, California. At that time, the defendant driver operating a vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed behind a vehicle that was traveling directly behind our client’s vehicle. Our client slowed down and stopped for the vehicles ahead. The defendant driver failed to yield to the halted traffic and rear-ended the vehicle in front of them, propelling the vehicle forward. In an attempt to avoid striking the vehicle ahead, the rear-ended vehicle turned left and struck a tree.

The defendant driver’s vehicle continued to move forward and rear-ended our client’s vehicle. The force of the impact pushed our client’s vehicle into the rear of the vehicle in the front, causing a chain of collisions involving four vehicles. The police officer on the scene of the collision found the defendant at fault for the violation of California Vehicle Code C.V.C 22350 for driving at an unsafe speed.

The defendant driver owed a duty of reasonable care to the public and, particularly, our client. The defendant driver breached these duties when they acted unreasonably, carelessly, recklessly, and negligently under the circumstances, thereby forcefully causing this collision. The defendant driver’s failure to keep a proper lookout for conditions of the road violated statutes and resulted in the collision. Our client was obeying all laws at the time of the collision and was acting reasonably under the circumstances, consequently alleviating any comparative negligence issues. It was abundantly clear that liability solely rested with the defendant. Liability was indisputable in this case.
