Teen Killed In Harbor Boulevard Car Accident | Orange County Lawyer Attorney

Rebecca Andaya‚ 16‚ of Santa Ana died in a fatal Orange County car accident that occurred on November 13‚ 2010‚ just before midnight. According to the coroner’s office‚ Andaya was an occupant in a SUV that lost control eastbound of the freeway near Harbor Boulevard‚ approximately 125 miles from San Diego.

Andaya was immediately transported to UCI Medical Center for treatment where she was pronounced dead around 1:00 a.m. on November 14‚ 2010. Five other people present in the car suffered minor to moderate injuries in this fatal car accident.

Unfortunately‚ it is unclear from the facts of the story why the accident occurred.  Now the investigating officers need to determine what made the car driver lose control of the vehicle.  There is a possibility that the accident may have been the result of a mechanical defect or design issue.  It could have also been the result of an uneven road surface.  Regardless of the facts‚ the victims’ families should consult with a personal injury attorney who can hire a trained private investigator to investigate how the accident occurred and to determine if there are any facts which would suggest that the accident was the cause of someone else’s negligence. Andaya’s family can seek advice from an experienced Orange County car accident lawyer who would help them obtain a timely compensation. Andaya’s family may be eligible to obtain a compensation to cover cost of funeral and burial‚ loss of anticipated earnings of the deceased and loss of love and companionship.

We offer our sincere condolences to all those who knew and loved Andaya for such a tragic and shocking loss.
