Injuries were sustained in a San Bernardino car accident involving two vehicles, caused by a wrong-way driver. According to a news report in The San Bernardino County Sun, the injury car accident occurred on the Base Line off ramp on southbound 215 Freeway in San Bernardino the night of April 28, 2011. California Highway Patrol officials say a gray Mitsubishi Lancer was going the wrong way when it hit a white Honda Civic. Both vehicles ended up facing the wrong way. An ambulance responded but the extent of injuries is not known. An investigation is ongoing.
My heart goes out to the injured victims of this crash. I wish them the very best for a speedy and complete recovery. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

What Caused This Car Accident
Based on this news report, this accident was caused by a driver who was going the wrong way on the roadway. It is not clear why the person was driving the wrong way. Was he or she under the influence? Was the driver disoriented due to medical reasons? I trust officials are still investigating the incident to determine the answers to these important questions.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing is apparent, injured victims can file a personal injury claim against the at-fault motorist seeking compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, cost of hospitalization, rehabilitation and other related damages. Injured victims would also be well-advised to seek the counsel of an experienced San Bernardino personal injury lawyer, who will analyze all facets of the incident and ensure that the negligent parties are held liable.
A skilled car accident attorney will also advise victims about how their own car insurance policy might apply to an incident where the at-fault driver is uninsured or underinsured. The best personal injury law firms will always offer a free consultation and comprehensive case evaluation.
