Coachella Valley Roadways: I-10

The Coachella Valley has multiple highways that connect its towns and cities as well as the rest of the state. Interstate 10 runs through the length of the Valley, allowing travel to Los Angeles and beyond. Some stretches of this busy highway are considered to be very dangerous, including the stretch between Coachella and Highway 177. As of July 12, 2017, the Desert Sun reports that 10 people were killed along that stretch of the interstate. In 2016, 12 people were killed between Coachella and Highway 177 on I-10, demonstrating that the fatal accident rate along this stretch of the interstate appears to be increasing in 2017 over the prior year. The congestion on I-10 may be part of the problem. Many of the accident victims have not been residents of the Valley, and anecdotal reports of road rage incidents and risky driving behaviors may point to added causes.

Coachella Valley Roadways: Highway 111

Weaving from Palm Springs to the Mexican border, Highway 111 also is the site of many car accidents. This road is known for its stop-and-go traffic and is extremely busy. At the southeastern corner of the Coachella Valley, SR 111 enters as a two-lane highway, later broadening first to a four-lane highway and then to a divided expressway at Palm Springs. It connects most of the cities in the Coachella Valley.

SR 62

Gavel and Balance Residents of the eastern portion of the Coachella Valley often use SR 62 in order to reach the Colorado River’s resorts because it is faster. This stretch of the highway is desolate and is one of the most dangerous in the state. A large portion of this highway runs from east to west, causing drivers to be blinded by the sun. Large portions of the road are unlit, and large portions of it do not have medians separating the oncoming lanes. This combination of factors makes it more likely for accidents to happen when drivers drift into other lanes or turn across the highway. The Desert Sun reports that 3.3 fatal accidents happened on Highway 62 per 100 million miles traveled from 2002 to 2012. By comparison, all of the roads in California had a fatal accident rate of 1.1 fatal accidents per 100 million miles traveled during the same time period, underscoring the dangers of driving on SR 62.

Client Reviews
I have known Steven for some time now and when his services were required he jumped in and took control of my cases. I had two and they were handled with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. He went the extra mile regardless of the bumps in the road. I can not see me using any other attorney and I would recommend him to any of my family and friends. Josie A.
Steven was vital during our most trying time. He was referred by a friend after an accident that involved a family member. While he was critical and lying in the hospital, Steven was kind, patient and knowledgeable about what we were going through. Following our loss, Steven became a tough and aggressive negotiator and made sure that we receive a huge compensation. I would refer Steven in fact, this happened 2 years ago and I still speak highly of his service. Cheryl S.
Mr. Sweat is a pitbull in the courtroom as well as settlement negotiations - You can't have a better equipped attorney in your corner! It is a pleasure working as colleagues together on numerous cases. He can get the job done. Jonathan K.

Steven is not only an excellent personal injury lawyer, providing the best legal advice, but also a professional lawyer who goes beyond his call of duty just to help his clients! He stood up for me and helped me get through the process. I would definitely recommend. I couldn't think of any better lawyer than him. MiraJane C.
I must tell anyone, if you need a great attorney, Steve sweat is the guy! I had an awful car accident and had no idea where to turn. He had so much to deal with because my accident was a 4 car pile up. Not to mention all the other cars were behind me and they were not wanting to settle in any way! He never stopped working for me and had my best interest at heart! Audra W.
I believe I made the best choice with Steven M Sweat, Personal Injury. I was very reluctant to go forward with my personal injury claim. I had a valid claim and I needed a professional attorney to handle it. I felt so much better when I let Steven take my case. His team did everything right and I am very satisfied. Stia P.
I have to say that Steve has been exemplary! I met Steve at a point with my case that I was ready to give up. He took the time and dealt with all of my concerns. Most importantly, he was present and listened to what I was going through. He was able to turn things around, put me and my case on the right track! The results were better that expected! Highly recommend!! Cody A.
