California highway shut down for 2 hours after fatal accident

No one wants to receive a call about a loved one who has been involved in an accident. Even so, tragedies occur on the road every day, and families are faced with a number of decisions when someone is lost to an accident. One of those decisions is whether or not to file a personal injury claim.

A lawsuit isn't the right choice for every family, but in many cases, a claim for compensation can help families move forward with life as they are able. In some cases, those lost in vehicle accidents leave behind dependents such as spouses and young children; compensations claims can cover immediate medical or funeral expenses, but they can also seek coverage future expenses or compensation for loss, pain and suffering.

One family is facing a number of tragic decisions following an accident that occurred on a California highway on July 1. According to authorities, the accident caused the highway to be shut down for around two hours as responders and investigators worked the scene.

According to California Highway Patrol, the accident involved a Coca-Cola truck. Officers were still investigating the incident as of July 1 and were unable to say whether the person killed in the incident was a pedestrian or a motorcyclist. The coroner's office was called in at around 4:20 a.m., say authorities.

As investigators discover more details and are able to construct a narrative of how the accident occurred, the family will have a better understanding of the situation. In such cases, waiting for additional details is often a good choice before deciding to take legal action.
