A woman was injured during a car accident in Orange County on August 31, 2016. The other driver involved in the accident was baseball player, Mike Trout of the LA Angels. According to the OC Register, Trout reported being very fortunate as it could have been a lot worse. It was reported that no drugs or alcohol were involved.
The other driver has sustained major injuries and she was taken to the hospital. The accident resulted from Trout allegedly swerved to avoid other cars and struck the rear left of this woman’s vehicle. California Highway Patrol are still investigating the incident according to the OC Register on September 2, 2016. The accident occurred on 55 the freeway near our main office. It is likely that Mike Trout will be found at fault for this accident. Trout has declined to comment until the investigation completes.
If it is determined that Mike Trout negligently caused this accident, the injured victim may be entitled to substantial damages as her injuries are major. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to financial recovery for your injuries. In most cases, the negligent driver’s insurance will compensate the injured party for injuries caused by their insured.
