San Diego Pedestrian Dies One Year After 2008 Walkway Collapse

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on August 24, 2009 - Comments off

A pedestrian walkway collapse at a construction site in the East Village of Downtown San Diego has claimed its’ second fatality nearly one year after the initial accident. James Barham was recently found dead after accidentally overdosing on the painkillers he took for the back and knee injuries suffered in the 2008 walkway collapse. He had been waiting for surgery to repair his injuries.
The San Diego pedestrian death occurred at a housing project site on Imperial Avenue in Downtown San Diego nearly a year ago on August 28, 2008. An astounding sixteen people were injured when the walkway, set up to divert pedestrians around the construction site, collapsed. Another victim of the accident, Tyrone Allen, also died months after the accident as a result of his injuries.
A friend of the Barham reported that his injuries had severely affected him both emotionally and physically. The Tylenol he had been taking was not enough for the pain he was experiencing and he recently went to the doctor for stronger medication and was described Percocet. Friends think he just lost track of his medication because of the pain. The accident caused him to rely on a cane to walk shortly before his death.

Two San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies riding all-terrain vehicles last weekend got involved in a crash in Imperial Beach while out on the ATV’s, injuring one when he was catapulted forward off the one he had been riding on.
The two deputies had been on northbound Seacoast Drive near Elder Avenue at 11:35 a.m. on August 16, 2009, when the ATV crash happened, as reported by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Sgt. Jerry Hartman. The lead deputy had stopped the motor vehicle in front of the other deputy just before it happened.

Los Angeles Boy Killed As He Crosses Street

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on August 13, 2009 - Comments off

A Southern California boy was killed last week when he was crossing a street in Los Angeles. The 14-year-old boy from Inglewood named Semaj Spencer was the tragic victim of this hit and run pedestrian accident. The suspect of the death has been charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter and a felony count of leaving the scene of an accident.
Prosecutors in the case note that 40-year-old Andre Thompson of South Los Angeles had also been charged on Thursday with driving under a suspended or revoked license, which is considered a misdemeanor in California. Thompson has pleaded not guilty to his charges in an Inglewood Superior Court, however. He also reportedly turned himself into police earlier this week and was subsequently arrested in the death of young Semaj Spencer. The teen boy was struck by the vehicle and killed last Sunday when he crossed the road at Imperial Highway in Los Angeles.

Fatal Mission Bay Cruise Leads to Death of La Jolla Man

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on August 7, 2009 - Comments off

San Diego’s Mission Bay had a deadly even this week when lifeguards and divers found the body of a 28-year-old La Jolla man in the bay on August 9, 2009, over 12 hours after he dove off the Bahia Belle cruise ship with two friends. He did not make it to shore and drowned.
Sean Rae and his friends jumped off of the tour boar during the night time cruise around 12:35 a.m. in the early morning of August 9, according to San Diego Lifeguard Lt. Andy Lerum. The San Diego Police Department released dive teams and joined with the Port of San Diego to search, along with a U.S. Coast Guard vessel, and even with lifeguards from the North County, to all search the waters. Before the body was found, Lerum was worried the area would be too large to search and successfully locate the body.
The Bahia Belle is a mock paddlewheel restaurant-bar cruise boat based at the Bahia Resort, which regularly cruises Mission Bay. Rae lived in La Jolla with his girlfriend.

Seattle | Kirkland, Washington Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on August 4, 2009 - Comments off

Just listened to an amazing interview by Ben Glass of Ben Glass Law in Fairfax, Virginia. He was interviewing Seattle, Washington motorcycle accident lawyer Max Meyers of Scott McDonald and Associates, PLLC, located in Kirkland, Washington.
Mr. Meyers has built a niche injury accident law practice representing the victims of serious motorcycle accidents. As we have stated on our own site, motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable to injury or death when they are involved in a traffic collision. The rider’s exposure to all outside forces because he lacks the protection of a vehicle’s steel frame, as well as the difference in mass between motorcycles and cars or trucks, almost guarantees a major injury.
As I listened to the interview, I was particularly impressed by the level of caring Mr. Meyers has for Washington motorcyclists and his clients. He has gone so far as to publish a free helpful book for Washington motorcycle accident victims which can be ordered online. It is also available in various motorcycle dealerships throughout the Seattle | Kirkland area.
Whether you are a seasoned rider or a weekend lawyer, I would highly recommend ordering his free book. If you or a loved one was unfortunate enough to be injured or killed in a Washington motorcycle accident, you can contact Mr. Meyers at his Washington personal injury law firm at (425) 822-5700.

Spinal Cord Disc Injuries Caused by Accidents

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on August 1, 2009 - Comments off

Most car accidents cause some type of injury to the spine. Often that injury is merely straining and spraining the soft tissues surrounding the spine which cause the spine to bend and flex. However, in many cases, the spine suffers a greater injury including injuries to the discs that cushion the vertebrae.
We recently posted two helpful articles on our San Diego personal injury law firm website which address spinal cord disc injuries caused by accidents and back and neck injuries resulting from injury accidents.
If you or a loved one has suffered a back or neck injury in a car accident, please contact our San Diego car accident attorneys at 619-233-5020 for a free consultation and assistance.
