December 7, 2009–A vehicle driven by Douglas Skubitz was broadsided last Monday and pushed into a light pole.  Mr. Skubitz expired in the collision.  It occurred on Highway 41 and Jackson near Lemoore as he was traveling to the coast.  A 2008 Dodge Charger driven by the other driver ran a stop sign.

The law firm of Nelson and Rozier in Visalia is currently in litigation over a very similar accident which also took place on Highway 41.  In that other action the driver ran  into the path of the plaintiff vehicle after crossing a prohibitively wide median.  The fatality, however, was caused by striking a light pole which was designed to breakaway and did not.  Further investigation of this most recent accident will determine if a valid action against Cal Trans can be filed.  We can have an investigator to the scene within hours of being retained.  Nelson and Rozier is a full service litigation firm which represents injured parties and also defends institutional clients such as Kaweah Delta District Hospital and the City of Lemoore.  Please give me a call.  John Rozier  559-713-0159.   /
