I was reading an article in the newspaper today while having breakfast that reminded me of the dangers of the “blind spot” while driving. Not that far from our Sacramento home, a woman in San Ramon was the victim of a “blind spot” car crash when she lost control of her car in a fatal way.
The article tells of a 20-year old man driving his Suzuki Sidekick along the freeway. He merged to get in the slow lane without seeing the San Ramon woman, Cynthia Muson-Lim, driving in the lane next to his car. To avoid the Sidekick, Cynthia swerved off the freeway, completely losing conrtol of her car and hitting a tree. She died at the scene due to the violent collision.
The thing that amazed me more about this story was the fact that the young man not only did not realize the woman was there initially but even after the accident he was not aware of what had happened. He turned without making sure it was safe, and because of his lack of attention, a woman lost her life because of it. A witness actually followed him, lights flashing, to inform him of the crash. It’s not only tragic, it’s very disturbing.
Framing this case in a legal scenario is something that will require further investigation. A more detailed and oriented walkthrough of the facts will be in order, to know how to proceed on this one.
Be careful when you drive. I cannot say it enough. It’s not just about the way you drive, it’s a lot about how other drivers behave on the roads. Be safe, and drive safe.

Don’t Let Your Statute of Limitations Run Out
In California, the law imposes a statute of limitations, which sets a maximum amount of time that legal proceedings can occur after the date of the accident or other incident. Each year at our Law Office, people call me to ask me for help that have legitimate cases, only to find their statute of limitations has already run out. It is one of the most difficult things for me to tell them I can’t help because they waited too long. If you wait to take action, you may have the best case in the world, and be very deserving of receiving compensation, but your claim is harshly lost forever. Don’t let this happen to you!
