Lake County, California (April 8th, 2019) – According to reporting from the Lake County Record-Bee, a 20-year-old man was identified as the victim of a deadly single-car accident that occurred Monday on the Nice-Lucerne Cutoff. Ruben James Foreman was riding as a passenger in the vehicle of an 18-year-old driver. Along with another unidentified juvenile, they were travelling in the northbound direction on the Nice-Lucerne Cutoff. At approximately 4:30 PM, the driver lost control of his Acura Integra and crashed into a wooden fence that was along the side of the roadway. Tragically, Foreman suffered devastating injuries in the wreck. Emergency service workers stated that he was unresponsive at the scene of the accident. He was later pronounced dead at a Lakeport, CA hospital. Neither the driver nor the juvenile passenger is believed to have suffered serious injuries in the crash. The California Highway Patrol does not believe that drugs or alcohol was a factor in the accident. Though, poor road conditions as a result of rainy weather may have contributed. This crash is still being investigated by the authorities. If you have any relevant information regarding the incident, you are encouraged to contact your local branch of the California Highway Patrol.

Long beach personal injury lawyer Michael Beliz represented my personal injury case this year and I’m glad I found them. In summation Michael Beliz came across as intelligent, effective, friendly, and genuine. An excellent people person and well versed attorney is a hard combination to find. Michael walked us through everything; spoke to me like a person and not a case number. He just pretty much made the whole ordeal so much easier. Michael was extremely helpful, patient and responsive with my family and me the entire time. Michael regularly checked in on me during my recovery and kept me up to date on the status of the case and conversations with the other parties’ insurance company. My case wasn’t large but he treated me as if I was one of his only cases. I would highly recommend the Beliz firm to family and friends as the highest recommendation I could offer.”M.G.
"No one wants to involve an attorney in an auto claim, but sometimes you have no choice. Michael made an unpleasant situation so much easier. He really took the time to understand everything that was going on and always gave me prompt and personal attention. He was involved immediately and took over all the interactions with the insurance companies. He became the only one I had to deal with and there were never any games with him, only sound advice. My only mistake was not calling Michael sooner. I now recommend an attorney anytime an injury is involved in an auto accident, if only so they can deal with the insurance companies’ games, and you would be hard pressed to find someone better than Michael Beliz."T.V.
