The Press Enterprise reported a traffic accident at the intersection of Iris Avenue and Oliver Street in the City of Moreno Valley.  The accident occurred on Saturday April 28, 2012.  The report further stated that a Mitsubishi Montero broadsided a smaller Honda Civic.  The passenger in the Honda suffered major head trauma injuries.  The drivers of the two vehicles suffered lesser injuries.  The police were looking for information regarding the accident.

Intersection accidents like this Moreno Valley traffic accident, often become complicated when the driver that caused the accident claims the he or she had the right-of-way to enter the intersection.  I recently resolved a disputed accident where both drivers claimed they each had the green light when they entered the intersection.  This can happen even when the traffic signals are not operating properly.  When both drivers claim they have a green light to enter the intersection, an independent witness to the accident is very helpful to establish proper liability.  Often the police discount the testimony of witnesses in the cars because of their natural bias.

More recently, insurance companies are claiming that they must take the side of their insured’s story even though that story has no corroboration.  This results in a very frustrating claim process.  Hiring a good Inland Empire personal injury attorney to help establish liability for the proper recovery of damages suffered in an intersection collision case is vital to get the best financial result.

For those involved in car wrecks in Moreno Valley, Riverside, Corona, Norco, Eastvale or Mira Loma or any other Inland Valley city, the Inland Empire Law Group is excellently situated in Rancho Cucamonga to handle intersection accident and the resulting personal injury claims from those accidents.
