A car crash lawyer in California is using social media to warn other people about their own car wreck.
The crash lawyer, who requested anonymity because of the ongoing investigation, says he is a father of two and a father-to-be who is working to raise money for his son’s college education.
The crash lawyer says he doesn’t want to put his career on the line to defend people he has never met.
“The main reason I’ve gotten into this whole thing is because I’ve been watching the media for a while and the lack of clarity about how to protect others from this type of thing,” the car wreck lawyer said.
The car crash is still under investigation.
The car is not listed in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s database of serious crash reports, but a woman in her 30s was killed and a 22-year-old man injured in a collision at a gas station.
“I’m one of the lucky ones,” the crash lawyer said, adding he doesn-t think the woman would have survived the crash if he had not intervened.
The attorney said he’s not looking to go into a legal battle with the woman, who has filed a claim against him for negligence.
“If I were to go in there, it would be the same way I would be looking at the insurance company, you know, they’re going to want to go to the insurance and make sure that I’m paying my money,” the attorney said.
“I’m not going to do that, I’m not a lawyer.
I’m a human being, so if I can’t do my job and be an effective lawyer then I think there should be some way for the insurance companies to come in and help me out.”
And I guess the insurance will have to help out if they have to,” the lawyer added.
A federal lawsuit filed in February claims that the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) should have looked into the crash.
The lawsuit alleges that the NTSB didn’t do enough to prevent the crash, and that its investigation into the accident was hampered by a lack of information from the crash’s driver, an NTSB investigator.
The NTSB, in a statement, said it is committed to investigating all of the crashes it receives, including any issues with the handling of data collected by its investigation, and will continue to do so.
The agency says the driver of the car involved in the crash did not provide any additional information that would have helped investigators.
The NTSB says it is cooperating with the police investigation.
