One hundred and ninety two vehicles, including semi-trucks and busses, were impacted by the mudslide on Highway 58 in Kern County last Thursday. Miraculously, no one was hurt – either by the slide or by the subsequent crashes. While rain is welcome in our drought-stricken region, significant rain fall can result in flash floods, mudslides, and other serious dangers. Bakersfield car accident attorney Mickey Fine encourages drivers to be hypervigilant while driving in areas with these risks and to practice safe driving in order to decrease risks of exacerbating the damages wrought by these events.

Issues of Liability
Typically, acts of nature are covered by insurance. But when injuries are caused by other drivers or by poor infrastructure, victims may be able to seek additional compensation through legal action. The best way to determine if you are entitled to file suit is by discussing your case, free of both cost and obligation, with an experienced auto injury attorney.
