Delta Flight 89 Dumps Jet Fuel on L.A. Schools, Injuring 60

In an almost unimaginable scenario, children playing at recess at Los Angeles area schools were doused in jet fuel after a Delta flight experienced engine trouble shortly after take-off. Long-term health effects may persist for those exposed to the fuel, entitling parents and their children to pursue their legal right to compensation for their losses.  

Deviations in Standard FAA Procedure Injure L.A. Area Students and Adults

Delta Air Lines Flight 89 experienced engine malfunction shortly after departure on the afternoon of January 14, 2020. Destined for Shanghai, the airliner returned to L.A.X. and landed safely – but only after flight crew members dumped fuel to get the 20-year-old Boeing below its maximum landing weight.

While this is considered a routine procedure to land safely, the aircraft was not flying high enough for the fuel to atomize and disperse, causing it to land on local elementary schools. Normal procedure requires aircraft to fly over unpopulated areas at a higher altitude to avoid exposing people to the potentially hazardous fuel. The FAA quickly released a statement assuring the public that they were “thoroughly investigating the circumstances behind today’s incident.”

60 Children and Adults Were Treated for Skin Irritation and Upper Respiratory Issues

A total of 14 schools and 60 people were affected by the dump, according to officials. Emergency services personnel treated:

  • 20 children and 11 adults at Park Avenue Elementary in Cudahy
  • 16 people at David Starr Jordan High School (South Gate) and 93rd Street Elementary (Avalon Gardens)
  • Six patients at Tweedy Elementary in South Gate
  • Six patients at San Gabriel Elementary in South Gate, and
  • One adult at Graham Elementary in Florence-Graham.

The injuries treated on the scene included skin irritation and upper respiratory issues. Though the symptoms were not life-threatening, that is little consolation to parents dealing with the shock and uncertainty of their children’s jet fuel exposure.

What Can Parents Do After Their Children Were Exposed to Jet Fuel?

The acute effects of jet fuel exposure in children include:

  • Burning eyes
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Headaches
  • Abdominal pain
  • Vomiting
  • Fever
  • Drowsiness
  • Irritability
  • Convulsions
  • Unconsciousness
  • Pneumonia

A study released by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry found that exposure to JP-5, JP-8, or Jet A fuels can cause dermatitis, decreased immune response, hearing impairment, diminished neurological function, and liver damage. The long-term carcinogenicity has not been studied.

Public health officials advised residents to avoid contact with chemical residue and go home for a full head-to-toe shower with soap and water. Contaminated clothing should be washed separately with regular detergent and discarded if odors remain. Mild skin irritations and upper respiratory irritation should improve on their own in the coming days, but those with lingering health issues should consult a medical provider. Californians can dial 2-1-1 to receive the latest information regarding the incident.

Car Crashes High on List of Causes of Premature Death in Los Angeles

4 killed in big rig collision Desert Center

Disturbing statistics have recently been issued from several governmental agencies that highlight just how many fatalities are occurring in Los Angeles as a result of car accidents.

First, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued a report in December 2019 indicating that car crashes stood at #4 in the causes of premature death in the county. Only homicides, strokes, and lung cancer cause more early deaths.

Traffic Deaths in 2019 Likely to Equal 2018 Levels

Second, the Los Angeles Police Department reported that 236 people were killed in collisions between January 1, 2019 and December 14, 2019. In fact, Curbed interviewed an LAPD captain who indicated that crashes in the last two weeks of the year will very likely push the total number of 2019 fatalities from vehicle accidents to more than the 240 fatalities of 2018.

The city has a program designed to stop all automotive crash deaths by 2025, now just 5 short years away. Unfortunately, these statistics indicate that the campaign, Vision Zero, is highly unlikely to meet its goal.

In fact, Vision Zero, which has been in effect for four years, is notably ineffective, as crash deaths have actually risen substantially, by 30%.

Observers note that similar traffic safety programs, in both New York and San Francisco, have reduced traffic deaths, although not reduced them to 0.

Other cities are more dangerous than Los Angeles, however. Southwestern cities like Albuquerque and Phoenix both have car collision death rates more than 100% above Los Angeles’. But neither of those cities has a campaign like Vision Zero in place.

Part of the issue may be that pedestrians and cyclists are particularly vulnerable amidst LA’s car-centric traffic patterns. Although city government has prioritized making hot spots known to be prone to accidents safer, it appears that bicyclists and pedestrians are still in more danger than motorists, as they made up over 60% of traffic deaths in 2019 despite making up only 1% of those in reported crashes.

We all need to focus more on traffic safety for motorists, bicyclists, pedestrians, and all other users of Los Angeles roadways.

3-Car Crash in Costa Mesa in Front of DMV Injures 3

Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer

Three vehicles collided directly in front of the Department of Motor Vehicles in Costa Mesa at midday Monday, January 6. All of the drivers sustained injuries, one seriously, according to the Newport Beach fire captain. Fire units had to extricate one of the injured from his vehicle, an SUV that had rolled over. He was rushed to a trauma unit.

The other two vehicles involved were a pickup and a compact car. One other driver was also hospitalized, but the condition was not reported.

The crash took place at roughly 12:30 at the intersection of 19th Street and Meyer Place.

People were asked on social media to avoid the area as multiple fire units were on the scene.

Early reports indicated that only the drivers were injured, although some news reports said a pink car seat and toys were visible on pictures of the scene.

The causes of the crash were not reported. It is not known if alcohol or drugs caused the incident.

Rollovers Are Dangerous

Although few details about the crash were reported, some general observations can be made from the details we do know.

Rollovers are among the most dangerous accidents that can happen on California’s roads. The reason is obvious – a vehicle rolling over can be significantly injurious or even fatal to every passenger inside the vehicle, even if they are wearing appropriate safety restraints, simply from the rollover motion itself.

In addition, as appears to have happened in the Costa Mesa crash, the vehicle can be damaged in such a way as to trap motorists inside the car. Being trapped can itself be dangerous. In every rollover crash, damage to the vehicle itself poses a danger to the occupants. Breaking glass can lacerate them. The jostling and hitting can break bones, crush limbs, and cause traumatic brain injury (TBI) or other injuries. At times, the fuel in rollover vehicles can catch fire.

A rollover can be profoundly dangerous to other vehicles and passersby. A rolling or upside-down vehicle can strike other vehicles or become an obstacle to be avoided, causing other accidents.

What causes a rollover? There are multiple potential causes, and it is not known what caused this one. But generally, vehicles with high centers of gravity — such as SUVs, trucks, and vans — are more susceptible to rollovers.

Echo Park Pedestrian Killed in Early Morning Hours; Driver Flees

ambulance

A 60-year-old father of 3 was fatally struck in the early morning hours of December 19 at an Echo Park intersection in a hit-and-run accident. The Los Angeles Police Department is actively looking for the driver, who fled the scene.

The victim was Jose Mario Vaquero, who was apparently catching a bus to his job in El Sereno. He was crossing Sunset Boulevard southbound, west of Douglas Street. The collision tossed Mr. Vaquero into the air, and part of the car’s bumper remained at the scene. He was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders.

LAPD detectives believe Mr. Vaquero may have run into the intersection against a red light to catch the bus. He was struck by a dark blue Honda Accord. It has dark, tinted windows and they also believe that it sustained significant damage to the front end, windshield, and perhaps the undercarriage.

The LAPD has released surveillance video of the vehicle. The city of Los Angeles automatically posts a $50,000 reward for help in the arrest and conviction of hit-and-run drivers.

News reports indicated that roughly 20,000 hit-and-run accidents have been reported annually since 2016.

Leaving the Scene of a Crash Is Against the Law

Although the LAPD is still investigating this accident, some observations can be made about the law in California. It is a felony crime to leave the scene of an accident in which someone has been injured or killed. California law requires that motorists involved in a crash that injures or kills someone to stop immediately and contact the police.

People reading about this horrific incident may be wondering if the family has any recourse against a negligent driver. Close family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit if a death was caused by the negligence of another party.

A wrongful death lawsuit can be filed by a surviving spouse, domestic partner, child, grandchild, or any minor who lived in the household for six months and was dependent on the decedent for at least half of his or her support.

While wrongful death settlements or jury awards can provide some financial stability to family members who relied on the loved one for financial and emotional support.

It should also be noted that wrongful death cases are brought in civil court. They are completely separate from any criminal charge, penalty, or trial that may take place.

21-Year-Old Woman Killed in Six-Car Crash on 210 Freeway; Driver Arrested on DUI

EMT paramedics in a rescue operation after a car crash

A 21-year-old woman was killed in a six-car crash on the 210 Freeway in the early morning hours of December 16. The victim, identified as Jennifer Gainer Goldsbury, 21, was a resident of Los Angeles.

The accident occurred in Duarte at approximately 2:40 a.m., when a Toyota Highlander in which Ms. Goldsbury was riding was apparently hit by a Ford Mustang. Ms. Goldsbury was ejected from the Highlander. The Mustang’s driver was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol.

The accident apparently began as a solo crash, when a Ford Fusion collided with a guardrail and was then hit by a Ford Escape, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP). It was not known which car hit the Mustang before it hit the Highlander.

The Fusion’s driver apparently left the scene before CHP arrived.
All westbound lanes of the 210 were shut down due to the accident.

DUIs and California Law

Although it is not known for certain what caused the fatal crash, some observations can be made about DUI and the law in California.

Driving under the influence of alcohol or other substances is a serious crime. For a first time offense, the penalties can be jail time of up to six months and a fine of up to $1,000, as well as possible license suspension.

The penalties go up for subsequent offenses.

Wrongful Death

The law in our state permits close family members to file a lawsuit if the death of a loved one has been caused by the negligence of another party. If a car accident has been caused by DUI-impaired driving, speeding, or some other negligent act by a driver, a wrongful death suit can be filed by close family members, including a surviving spouse, domestic partner, child, grandchild, or any minor who lived in the household for six months and was dependent on the decedent for at least half of his or her support.

Of course, a wrongful death suit cannot bring a loved one back or erase the tragedy of their untimely passing. It is, however, designed to ease the financial burden of a family deprived of a loved one.

Wrongful death cases take place in civil court. They are not related to any criminal charges or potential trials. The dropping of a criminal charge or a reduced sentence has no bearing on a wrongful death lawsuit because they are entirely separate cases.

One Killed, Two Children Critically Injured in South L.A. T-Bone Accident

ambulance

A 52-year-old woman died and her two young relatives were injured critically-to-seriously after a vehicle ran a stoplight and T-boned their vehicle on Friday, November 29. The victim, Felicita Lemus, was trapped by the impact of the crash on the driver’s side. Although paramedics worked to rescue her, she was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene.

The passengers in her vehicle, her nephew and grandchild, were taken to the hospital with injuries described as “serious to critical.” Both children underwent surgery. Relatives said on a Facebook memorial page that one child, 12, had fractures in his face, while the other, 10, had internal bleeding in the brain and injuries to the neck and liver.

The accident occurred at roughly 11:30 p.m. in the 800 block of East Colden Avenue, just east of McKinley Avenue, in the Green Meadows neighborhood of South Los Angeles. According to news reports, an SUV and a car were involved, but it was not immediately clear which vehicle belonged to Ms. Lemus and which to the other driver.

Ms. Lemus and the children had spent the day with family.

The circumstances that caused the driver to run a red light were not immediately clear. The crash is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department. News reports indicated they did not suspect alcohol as a cause.

T-Bone Crashes and Liability

Although the South Los Angeles accident is still being investigated by police, some general observations can be made.

One vehicle striking another broadside, known as a T-bone, is one of the most dangerous car accidents. Occupants are cushioned by the front and back bumpers if a car is hit in the front or rear, but there is comparatively little cushioning at the side.

What happens when people are killed or injured as a result of another driver’s reckless behavior? All drivers owe a reasonable standard of care to other motorists and the public. Drivers need to operate their vehicles safely, obey all traffic laws and regulations, and maintain their vehicles in a safe condition.

When drivers do not do this, they can be said to have violated the duty of care. This is negligence, and it makes them liable for injuries directly caused by accidents stemming from their negligence.

Injured parties can recover damages from at-fault parties because the latter are liable. If an injury leads to death, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed to recover damages from the at-fault party on behalf of the deceased and their relatives.

Two Children Dead in Wake of Fiery Stevenson Ranch Crash

EMT paramedics in a rescue operation after a car crash

Two children have tragically died as a result of a fiery crash near Stevenson Ranch on November 18. A speeding car carrying a mother and two children barreled through a red light, veered into the wrong side of the street, and crashed into a curb, a sign, a traffic signal, a power box, and a tree before bursting into flames, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

Both children were rushed to the hospital. One, a 6-year-old girl, died later that day; her 2-year-old sister died of injuries received in the crash two days later.

All three people were rescued from the burning wreckage by bystanders. The mother, a 31-year-old Bakersfield resident, was treated for minor injuries. Her name has not been released. Early news reports indicated she was naked for unknown reasons when pulled out of the vehicle. Some rescuers, though, indicated she was wearing a dress, but that it did not cover her.

The incident happened near the intersection of Old Road and Pico Road at roughly 9:45 a.m., according to CHP officials.

Seat Restraints at Issue

Law enforcement officials are trying to determine if the children were restrained in their seats properly. Bystander comments indicated they were not; they needed to be extricated from underneath belongings that had fallen on them.

Under California law, all children under 8 years old should be in a child safety seat or booster and ride in the back seat.

California Car Accidents and the Law

Although it isn’t yet clear what caused the Stevenson Ranch crash and the investigation appears to be ongoing, some general observations about car accidents and the law in California can be made.

All drivers have a duty of care to follow all applicable laws and traffic safety principles. If they don’t, they may be subject to criminal penalties. It is against the law, for example, to drive recklessly and to drive if impaired by alcohol or other substances that cause impairment.

In addition, failure to follow the law and safe driving principles is a breach of the duty of care all drivers owe when they get behind the wheel. Such a breach in the duty of care is negligence, and negligent drivers can be liable for injuries and other harm caused directly by their negligence.

Koreatown Early Morning Crash Injures 5, Leaves Car Twisted Around Traffic Pole

ambulance

Five people were injured in a Koreatown crash in the early morning hours of November 22. All were hospitalized, two in critical condition. Two other victims were in serious condition and one was in fair condition.

The two-vehicle accident occurred around 5:07 a.m. at the intersection of Beverly Boulevard and N. Western Avenue. One vehicle was twisted around a traffic pole at the intersection. The other car was seriously damaged as well.

Both police and firefighters were called to the scene. The Los Angeles Fire Department fought to extricate one trapped occupant from a car, and emergency personnel could be seen attending to another victim on a gurney.

There was no indication of the causes of the accident when news reports were filed.

Determining Responsibility for an Accident

While nothing is known of the causes of the Koreatown accident, some general observations can be made about responsibility for vehicle accidents.

Drivers have a duty of care to the public to operate their cars in a safe manner, or in a way that a reasonably prudent person would consider safe. They need to obey all laws. They need to maintain and repair their cars to keep them in good working order.

If an accident is caused by driving unsafely or violating the law in some way, or a combination of the two, the at-fault driver can be said to have breached the duty of care owed to the public. If so, they are negligent and can be held legally responsible for injuries and other harm done in an accident.

Other parties can be responsible for accidents as well. If accidents happen because parts of the car do not operate properly or failed, then the responsibility could lie with the vehicle manufacturer or a supplier of component parts. If accidents happen because traffic lights are not working, the government entities responsible for maintaining the roads may be at fault.

The causes of car accidents can be complex. They may be difficult to determine, especially if there are few witnesses. Police reports can help to establish the causes of an accident, but it can also be advantageous to work with a law firm’s investigative team to figure out all the factors that went into causing an accident.

Andrew Ellis Selected for Prestigious California Super Lawyers® Honor for 5th Year in a Row

Andrew Ellis Super Layers 5 Years Badge

Ellis Law Corporation is proud to announce that founder and senior partner Andrew Ellis has been selected to the renowned California Super Lawyers® list for 2020. This marks the fifth consecutive year that Mr. Ellis has been chosen to receive this prestigious honor for his exceptional work in the field of Personal Injury Law. Less than 5 percent of lawyers practicing nationwide are granted this annual distinction.

Super Lawyers determines its ratings based on a rigorous screening process that includes factors such as peer evaluations, a track record of successful results for clients, community engagement, and other accomplishments.

Andrew Ellis In the National Spotlight

Super Lawyers magazine will include a profile of Andy Ellis.  Every attorney practicing in California receives the annual Super Lawyers list, and the publication is sent to ABA-accredited law school libraries for reference purposes. The list of honorees also appears in top city and state magazines, and receives national media attention.

The Super Lawyers list enables the public and other attorneys to consult the top lawyers in their fields when seeking legal representation. It is a resource second to none. Lawyers in every state, as well as Washington, D.C., are included on the list.

Super Lawyers Evaluation Process

The multiphase Super Lawyers selection process is extraordinarily thorough. The phases include:

1. Nomination – Lawyers are not permitted to self-nominate, but are nominated by peers who practice in their state. To submit a nomination, the individual must have firsthand knowledge of the candidate’s work in court. An attorney-led research team then examines the candidate’s credentials, including professional competence, as well as honors or certifications received by the nominee.  

2. Evaluation – The research department evaluates nominated lawyers, taking many factors into consideration, including settlement and verdict history, the candidate’s experience, representative clients, and all awards and honors. Further determination is based on the nominee’s education, ranking within his or her law firm, publication of scholarly articles, lectures, and more. Pro bono or community service work is also part of the criteria.

3. Blue Ribbon Review – This phase involves peer evaluation of nominees by attorneys in the same practice areas. At this stage of the rating process, candidates with the highest point accumulation rank other nominees on a 1 to 5 scale.

4. Selection – Selection to the Super Lawyers list is given to those attorneys with their practice area’s highest number of points. Before the designation is deemed official, the licensing status of each lawyer is checked. There is also an intensive internet search to ensure the lawyer is not facing issues that may negatively affect their reputation. Prior to publication, every attorney selected receives the content information to verify accuracy.  

About Ellis Law Corporation

While Andrew Ellis’ inclusion on the California Super Lawyers list for the fifth year running is a sterling achievement, at Ellis Law Corporation, our primary focus is always on our clients. Serving victims of personal injury throughout Southern California, we have recovered more than $350 million in settlements and verdicts over the past two decades.

Canoga Park Crash Sends 5 to Hospital With Life-Threatening Injuries, Causes Flood of Shoe Store

A total of 9 people were injured in Canoga Park on October 20 when a car crashed into a fire hydrant, causing a geyser that flooded a close-by shoe store. Five of the injured had life-threatening injuries, according to the Los Angeles Times. Another, a four-year-old child, had a broken leg.

The accident happened at the corner of Sherman Way and De Soto Avenue shortly before 9 p.m. Fire Department officials indicated that a Kia which appeared to be speeding collided with a Nissan, causing the Nissan to crash into the fire hydrant.

The Kia’s driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. She was handcuffed at the scene.

The geyser from the fire hydrant also partially collapsed the roof of the shoe store, WSS Footwear. Customers were inside at the time of the accident. Power lines also fell as a result of the geyser.

The water was shut off within the hour by the L.A. Department of Water and Power. The extent of structural damage and the timing of the clean-up of the building was not immediately confirmed.

Assessing Liability in an Accident

While all accidents are different, some observations about liability can be made as a result of this accident. All drivers owe a duty of care to the public as a result of obtaining a driver’s license. The duty of care consists of obeying all traffic laws and regulations and driving safely and prudently. Speeding and operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs are clear violations of the duty of care, because they are such actions are neither safe nor prudent.

Any driver who violates the duty of care can be deemed negligent. When the negligence causes an accident, the negligent party can be liable for injuries and property damage directly stemming from the accident.
