Details on the Big Rig Crash Reported on Southbound I-5 in Stockton
Officers with the California Highway Patrol (CHP) reported that a silver sedan was broadsided by a big rig. Authorities said it was believed that the traffic collision may have initially occurred on the Country Club onramp to southbound Interstate 5.
Traffic in the area was diverted to the right-hand shoulder to allow officials to investigate and clear the scene. Injuries were reported in the truck accident in Stockton. However, information on the number of injured parties and what caused the broadside collision was not immediately provided by CHP traffic officers.
What to Expect from a Personal Injury Claim for a Truck Accident
Of the many types of motor vehicle crashes drivers and passengers may be involved in, truck accidents are by far one of the most catastrophic and devastating. Getting into a traffic collision with a big rig may have life-changing consequences for both an injured party and their loved ones. The aftermath of the incident, ranging from traumatic injuries and mounting medical expenses to time lost from work and extensive rehabilitation, may be challenging to handle. If someone else was to blame for the big rig crash, an injured party may have the right to seek financial compensation from that party through a personal injury claim. This may include medical bills, lost income, intangible losses like pain and suffering, and more.
Before financial recovery of injuries and losses may be sought, it must be proven that the other party was responsible for the incident through their negligent actions. Knowing how to prove negligence on the part of the other party is only one step of the process. When in such a stressful situation, it may be tempting to accept a lump sum settlement from the insurance company. However, keep in mind that any initial settlement offer from the insurer may not even come close to covering the economic and non-economic damages that were suffered as a result of the incident.
An injury lawyer can help alleviate the burden an injured party may be dealing with by handling all aspects of the case so they can focus on recovering from accident-related injuries. Unlike insurers, accident attorneys care about those injured by the negligence of others and will stop at nothing to obtain successful outcomes in their cases.
