Friday, June 28th, 2013

HAWTHORNE, California (June 28, 2013) – Two people were killed early Friday morning, and several were injured when a disabled vehicle was struck by a semi tractor trailer truck on the San Diego Freeway in Hawthorne, according to a dispatch report issued by the California Highway Patrol.

Just before 3 a.m., CHP officers received a 911 call informing them that a major collision had occurred on the southbound side of the 405 Freeway at Rosecrans Avenue.

According to the CHP the big rig overturned after hitting the vehicle.

Two people, both adults, were pronounced dead at the scene, and two others were taken to a nearby hospital in critical, but stable condition.

This was the second fatal freeway crash in Los Angeles County on Friday morning.

“Those who are involved in major traffic accidents may have injuries that alter their lives for the foreseeable future,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “Many who are injured in car crashes will have a long uphill battle ahead of them and its important that they have the support they need.”

12-YEAR-OLD FAITH LOVE KILLED BY DRUNK DRIVER WHILE TRICK-OR-TREATING IN SUMMERLIN, NEVADA

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

In a recent article in The Las Vegas Herald- Tribune, a DUI accident involving a young girl was discussed. Justin Caramanica, 42, was under the influence of alcohol, pot, and oxycontin when he ran his car into 12-year-old trick-or-treater, Faith Love. Love died from multiple injuries. The accident occurred at 8:20 p.m., last year, on October 31, 2011 at Sandstone Bluffs Drive and Wesley Lake Place in Summerlin.

Caramanica pleaded guilty in July to DUI which caused the death of Faith Love. At a recent sentencing hearing, Judge Elissa Cadish gave Caramanica the maximum sentencing for DUI. Judge Cadish pointed out that even while Caramanica was out on bail, he drove a car against her orders and had another accident. Caramanica has two daughters of his own and apologized to Faith Love’s mother. The hearing was extremely emotional.

“If you or someone you love has been affected by a DUI, please seek out legal counsel as soon as possible. This is such a serious matter for everyone involved,” states West Seegmiller, founder of the Las Vegas Personal Injury Law Firm, The Seegmiller Law Firm.

Crystal Gray and Shelby Kraft, from Hemet, CA, Killed While Driver Flees Police

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

HEMET, California — Two women were killed after a driver attempted to evade police and struck a tree in Hemet on Tuesday, according to the Riverside County Coroner’s Office.

Crystal Gray, 33 a resident of Hemet and her passenger Shelby Kraft, 21 also a resident of Hemet who was seated in the rear of Gray’s sedan were both killed around 2:30 a.m. while traveling on Whittier Avenue east of State St. in Hemet.

A third woman, whose name has not been released was critically injured in the crash that caused the car to catch fire, the Press Enterprise reported.

Police officials are still investigating why the driver fled after an officer stopped the car because it matched a car that was used in four drive-by shootings, the report said.

The chase reached speeds of up to 100 mph but police tried to back off because the driver was passing through intersections too fast and the police wanted to be safe. They later found the car that had crashed into a tree on fire, the report said.

If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident it is important you seek legal help during this difficult time.

La Mirarda Resident Henry Iseli Jr., Killed in Cypress Car Accident

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

CYPRESS, California — A La Mirada man was killed while driving through the intersection of Valley View Street and Cerritos Avenue in Cypress on Friday at around 1:30 p.m.

Henry Iseli Jr., 58, was involved in an accident with another vehicle; he was transported to the Los Alamitos Medical Center where he later died, according to the Orange County Sherriff-Coroner’s office.

Investigators still have not determined whether Iseli was killed as a result of the accident or if he was killed as the result of a natural cause, the coroner’s release said.

“My heart goes out to the family of the victim of this accident; while it isn’t easy dealing with such a loss, it is important families of accident victims know their rights and have someone by their side when it comes time to deal with the insurance companies,” said attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm.

Leisure World Drunk Driver Arraignment In Death of Robert Dillon

Friday, July 20th, 2012

SANTA ANA, California—Dale Snyder Quinn, a 75-year-old woman accused of having a blood alcohol content level of .22 percent, will be arraigned Friday morning for crashing her car into an 86-year-old man and killing him at an intersection inside Leisure World in Seal Beach.

According to the Orange County District Attorneys’ office, Quinn is accused of failing to stop at an intersection inside the Leisure World complex at approximately 5:40 p.m. on May 20, 2012. The defendant ignored three marked stop signs and two pedestrian-crossing signs and slammed into 86-year-old Robert Dillon who was crossing the street on his battery-operated scooter, said a spokesperson from the D.A.’s office.

Dillon was thrown from his scooter on impact and was transported to a hospital where he died eight days later from his injuries, said a D.A.’s  office spokesperson. Quinn was found sitting in her car and police say she displayed signs of intoxication including slurred speech, watery eyes and emitting an odor of alcohol.

Dale is charged with one felony count of vehicular manslaughter by lawful act that might cause death with gross negligence while intoxicated and if convicted, the D.A.’s office says she faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in state prison.

“There is no excuse for driving under the influence,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law firm. “Those who drive drunk and endanger the lives of others need to be held accountable for the damage and destruction they cause.”

Nationwide there were 10,228 deaths attributed to alcohol impaired driving in 2010 and while the numbers are staggering, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration reports that deaths from drunk drivers were actually down nearly 5 percent in 2010 compared to 2009.

For roughly 30 years, the legal experts at Seegmiller Law Firm have represented hundreds of clients who were injured in serious traffic accidents or have lost a loved one.  Our law firm has a proven track record supported by settlements ranging from several thousand dollars to millions.
