Orange County, California – Michelle Stanford, 52, of Indio has been identified by the authorities as the woman who was killed in an Orange County two-vehicle crash that happened on Sunday evening.

The incident was reported at around 6:26 p.m. August 23, on the Eastern Transportation Corridor (241) near Santiago Canyon Road.

Stanford was pronounced deceased at the site of the crash.

A child and two other people in Stanford’s vehicle were injured. The child was taken to Children’s Hospital of Orange County.

Martin was also hurt in the crash and was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center.

The CHP is handling the investigation.

Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

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. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
