Yorba Linda, California (February 24, 2020) – The Orange County coroner’s office has identified Trinidad Solis, 70, from Selma, California, as one of the two persons killed in a two-vehicle accident on Sunday morning in Yorba Linda.

“Car accident claims are rarely straightforward regardless of the involved circumstances”, says Mr. Arin Khodaverdian, the Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group. He further said that “Liable insurance companies will often do everything possible to limit their out-of-pocket expenses by either devaluing or outright denying your claim and it is crucial, therefore, to have an experienced attorney on your side”.
