HESPERIA, California – Sergio Marin, 32, of Fontana died early New Year’s Day morning in a head-on car crash with another vehicle on Cottonwood Avenue, according to a press release issued by the San Bernardino County Sheriff Coroner Department.

About 1:44 a.m., Marin was traveling in the wrong direction in the southbound lanes of Cottonwood Avenue when his 1994 Honda Civic collided head-on with a 1997 Acura carrying two adults and three juveniles, the coroner and the Press Enterprise reported. Marin died at the scene of the two-vehicle crash, but the five victims in the other vehicle were transported to different nearby hospitals with serious injuries, the Press Enterprise reported.

“New Year’s Eve night is one of the most dangerous times to be traveling,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law Firm. “My condolences to the family of the man who died and prayers to those who survived that they fully recover from their injuries.”

Those who are injured in traffic accidents due to someone else’s negligence may recover compensation for their medical costs, lost wages and other financial losses in a personal injury lawsuit against the driver’s insurance carrier. Studies have shown that victims who are represented by an attorney typically recover roughly 3.5 times more in compensation than those who work directly with an insurance adjuster, Seegmiller said.

Witnesses to the New Year’s Day car accident are asked to contact Deputy Kevin McCurdy at 760-947-1500.

The Seegmiller Law Firm Legal Team is Set to Raise Money for Walk Like MADD Event

Monday, November 5th, 2012

Irvine, California November 5, 2012

West Seegmiller, founder of Southern California’s top personal injury law firms and host of the West of Legal radio show on KFWB News Talk 980, has begun fundraising to help support Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).  MADD is a non-profit organization founded in 1980 in Sacramento by Candace Lightner, a mother whose 13-year-old daughter was a pedestrian killed by a repeat drunk driver.

“We are proud to participate in such a worthy cause because we believe it’s important to raise awareness about the dangers and risks of drunk driving,” Seegmiller said. “Saving lives by preventing drunk driving is an honorable mission and we are glad we can be a part of this rewarding experience.”

Every Sunday this month, West Seegmiller has been asking his listeners on “The West of Legal” show to like his firm’s Facebook page. Mr. Seegmiller has pledged to donate $1 for every like on his Facebook page this month to MADD at this year’s event. Additionally, the Seegmiller legal team and their families are participating at the annual Walk Like MADD event held at 10 a.m. on November 10, 2012 in San Diego. Listeners are also invited to join the Seegmiller team on the walk.

The San Diego Walk Like MADD fundraiser will directly support local families and survivors of drunk drivers through various programs including offering emotional and legal support to victims and their families, providing equipment to local police to help them arrest drunk drivers and working to help influence state and local legislators to adopt stricter laws against drunk drivers.

According to MADD, an estimated one in three people are involved in an alcohol-related crash at some point in their lifetime. Here are some more statistics from MADD’s website (www.madd.org):

  • Almost half of all drivers who were killed in crashes and tested positive for drugs also had alcohol in their system
  • About one-third of all drivers arrested or convicted of driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence of alcohol are repeat offenders.
  • Among persons aged 12 or older, males were more likely than females (15.1 vs. 7.9 percent) to drive under the influence of alcohol in the past year.
