Jake Robinson, a Fallbrook High School senior, was involved in a car accident on September 23, 2008, on his way home after a long day of school and football practice.
He was speeding when he lost control of his car on a Fallbrook street and ran into a utility pole. The senior was not wearing his car’s seatbelt. His spinal cord was crushed as a result of the auto accident.
Our car accident lawyers wish to say that their sympathy goes out to the Robinson family. It is heartening to see how much emotional support the family has received. We are also happy to see that despite not wearing his seat belt, Jake Robinson came out of the accident alive.
That same week, he underwent two, 10-hour long surgeries at Palomar Medical Center in Escondido to stabilize his spinal cord. Now he is undergoing medical treatment and physical therapy sessions two times a week at San Diego’s Sharp Memorial Hospital.
Ever since the car accident, there has been an outpouring of support towards Robinson and his family. At the remaining football home games, donation buckets were passed around the crowd to help the Robinsons with expenses. A benefit was held at the Hukilau restaurant at the Fallbrook Golf Club, where they held a silent auction.
Robinson is an honors student at Fallbrook High School, was elected homecoming king that year (for which he was belatedly crowned after the auto accident), and had gone this previous summer to help AIDS victims in Kenya with his church youth group.
