Earlier this summer, a major traffic accident in Redwood City claimed the lives of five Filipino women. They were out celebrating the wedding of one of their party, and they died from smoke inhalation. It was a limousine fire on the San Mateo Bridge, and it not only caused the tragic deaths of the five women but also injured four other people.
According to reports from the authorities, the conflagration was caused by mechanical failure in the air suspension system. This resulted in friction between a metal pan and the drive shaft in the limousine. Consequently, the limousine company is being ordered by the California Public Utilities Commission to pay $7,500, on the basis that the number of passengers in the vehicle was above the allowable limit.
The victims are currently being represented by a Northern California personal injury firm but have not made a statement to the media. They have filed a civil case against the limousine company and the driver of the limo.
The leading cause of personal injury claims in our state is car accidents. All car accidents are horrific events that can cause extreme physical and emotional injuries. When someone's negligence is the cause of another's injuries or death, families deserve the opportunity to fight for compensation.
