Two SUV's were involved in a Palm Desert traffic accident Thursday night, 9/1/11. The accident occurred at 8:28 p.m. on Gerald Ford near Pacific Avenue. There was one death and two serious injuries. The Sheriff's office reported that two people were ejected from the vehicles. As a Coachella Valley personal injury attorney I continue to be amazed at the number of drivers that still to this day refuse to wear seatbelts. The fear of traffic tickets, media attention, billboards, and common sense do not seem to matter to certain stubborn people. An
auto accident attorney deals with injured people on a daily basis. It is truly sad to see accident victims with injuries that could have been prevented by just using the belts. Quite often
wrongful death claims are made because of the death of family members that were ejected from cars during the accident scenario. What more can be said?
