At least three people have died after a major storm resulted
in flooding in South France, the country’s Interior Ministry confirmed.
The government has already deployed more than 2000 rescue
workers and firefighters to assist in rescue operations.
The torrential rains, which have been pouring for almost two months, have blocked roads in the northern part of Italy and Spain including the town of Béziers and Hérault.
A taxi driver identified only as 52-year-old Fabrizio Torre
was one of those killed. He was reportedly driving a customer to a golf club
when he was swept by the waters.
An 81-year-old man also died after his car overturned in
The minister called on people to be cautious during this
time. “The rain continues and is now affecting the eastern coast of
Haute-Corse. Everyone must remain vigilant.” He said.
Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”
While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
