Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) September 9, 2008
The national automobile defect law firm Bisnar Chase is representing Simon Gonzalez and his five children who lost their wife and mother, respectively, in a fatal Toyota Tundra rollover accident. The Gonzalez's are suing Toyota Motor Company, the manufacturer of the Toyota Tundra, and Terence Clay Chavez, employee of Best Infrared Services, Inc., for the wrongful death of Lucia Mercado Gonzalez. The case was filed in the Superior Court of California, San Bernardino County, Case #CIVRS806144.
On July 16, 2006, according to court documents, the Gonzalez family was traveling on Interstate I-15 north of Hesperia, California in their Toyota Tundra when it was struck from behind by Terence Clay Chavez, who was driving for his employer, Best Infrared Services, Inc.
The court documents state that upon impact, Simon Gonzalez lost control of the Toyota Tundra, spinning out and then rolling over on the roadway, causing catastrophic injuries to Lucia Gonzalez, who died at the scene. The Gonzalez' children, Simon, Maritza Estrada and Hortencia Mejia, were severely injured.
The Gonzalez' lawsuit claims that the wrongful death of Lucia and severe injuries of her children were caused by the Toyota Tundra's lack of an electronic stability control system and unsafe restraint systems. The Gonzales' are asking for medical expenses, loss of past and future earnings, funeral and burial expenses, damages for wrongful death, personal injuries, pain and suffering and court costs.
"No matter how many times I see good people like the Gonzales' suffer needlessly from the callous disregard of automobile manufacturers like Toyota who put their profits ahead of people," said Brian Chase, partner of Bisnar Chase, "I am still outraged. Is investing a few dollars make the Toyota Tundra more stable and crash-worthy too much to ask?"
