Last Saturday, an accident occurred in the Krasnodar Territory, which is still being discussed. On the Mercedes-Maybach track, in which Ksenia Sobchak and her team were, overtaking, drove into the oncoming lane and collided with a Volkswagen Polo Sedan. As a result, the Mercedes was not injured, but the woman who was driving another car was literally squeezed tightly. The deceased is survived by a seven-year-old daughter. Two other passengers of the Volkswagen were injured.

Ksenia Sobchak and her colleagues in the film crew after the collision did not wait for the police and rescuers and left in another car, as they had to catch a plane to Moscow.The news of the accident instantly spread around the Internet, and the public was divided into two camps. Some believe that Ksenia is not to blame for anything, and from a legal point of view, it is. Others harshly criticize the star for not helping in any way, despite having great connections in various circles.

Later, Sobchak wrote on her Instagram blog that she was in a hurry to her husband and son. In addition, the presenter herself received a concussion and even lost consciousness, so she was transferred to another car. Now the journalist is involved in the case as a witness. She will have a confrontation with a Mercedes-Maybach driver.

In fact, anyone could have been in the place of Ksenia Sobchak. We decided to ask Katya Gordon, a philanthropist, human rights activist and public figure, how to behave if you suddenly got into such an accident.

Where to call and apply in such a situation?

If you find yourself in a similar situation, then further actions are a matter of your human qualities. There are several options for the development of events. You can choose to continue on to the plane you are missing, or you can do everything in your power to get help to those injured as soon as possible. Legal advice in this case is useless, since the passenger is not at fault for the accident. That is, one can speak of guilt in such situations only from a moral point of view. You need to call an ambulance, connect all possible connections in order to save a life or somehow help, and not, closing your eyes, continue on your way.

Is compensation due, what kind and to whom?

There will be a trial. Since the person has died, such cases cannot end simply in reconciliation. Moral harm on average varies in such situations from 800 thousand to 1.5 million rubles. You can also claim money for the car.An examination will be carried out, and its assessment will be made. The driver will pay.

Why did everyone attack Ksenia Sobchak?

Because she showed herself to be heartless towards the victims. She had connections, opportunities to somehow speed up the arrival of help at the scene of an accident, and, if desired, make it so that almost a helicopter arrived at the scene of the accident, but she simply left, despite the fact that a woman died in a neighboring car.
