Each year, more than 2 million Americans are involved in car accidents that result in death or serious injury. Here’s a look at a few recent personal injury lawsuits and settlements related to car accidents. Lawsuit Filed Over “Ponderosa Jump” Deaths A lawsuit has been filed over the deaths of two teenagers from Spokane Valley, Washington who were killed in an auto accident. Both 15-year-olds were riding in the car of another teen who was driving over “the Ponderosa Jump,” a dip in the road which locals used to “catch air.” The car left the roadway and hit a tree,
Actress Lisa Robin Kelly, died last August after battling with drug and alcohol addiction. Kelly is most prominently known for her role of Laurie Foreman in the successful TV series, That ‘70s Show.
