Tragedy struck on Monday night near Coalinga, California, when 76-year-old Geoffrey Balzer lost his life in a vehicle accident. Balzer was tending to his broken-down vehicle on the side of I-5 when he was struck by another vehicle. The Fresno County Coroner’s Office has confirmed his death.
At Avian Law Group, we extend our deepest sympathies to Balzer’s family and loved ones during this difficult time. Losing a loved one in such a sudden and unexpected manner is a shock that can leave lasting emotional wounds. Our hearts go out to those who are now grieving his loss.
It is crucial for drivers to exercise caution when driving near broken-down vehicles or areas where pedestrians may be present. Vehicles must slow down and move over to allow for proper clearance and ensure the safety of individuals who may be working on or near the road. It is also essential for vehicle operators to remain attentive and avoid any distractions while driving.
Unfortunately, accidents like these happen more often than we would like. If you or someone you know has been involved in a vehicle accident that resulted in injury or death, it is important to seek legal counsel from a trusted law firm. Our team at Avian Law Group is experienced in handling wrongful death cases and is dedicated to fighting for the justice that victims and their families deserve.
We hope that this tragic incident serves as a reminder of the importance of taking necessary precautions while driving and the importance of seeking legal assistance in times of crisis.
