Details by CHP on the Car Accident on Dyer Road and Vasco Road in Contra Costa County
CHP traffic officers responded to the scene of a head-on collision involving three vehicles. Upon the arrival of the police, the three cars were blocking the roadway. Engine 52 with the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD) arrived on the scene around 5:50 p.m. Officials reported four patients with one who required emergency extrication, one with moderate injuries, and two with injuries described as minor.
Authorities indicated that a man in one of the vehicles reportedly struck his head against an unspecified object in the car accident. An air ambulance was requested to transport him to an area hospital for treatment of a head injury. An update regarding the conditions of injured parties and the cause of the head-on collision was not immediately available.
Seeking Compensation for Accident-Related Injuries
There is a wide array of accidents that may lead to serious injuries, such as head trauma. When those crashes are preventable and the result of driver error, injured parties may bring a personal injury claim against the motorist responsible for the incident and their insurance company. Such cases are intended to seek financial compensation in the form of economic and non-economic damages to place the claimant in the original position they were in before the traffic collision.
The unfortunate reality is that insurance carriers will not make the process of recovering fair compensation easy after suffering a traumatic injury in a car accident. A claimant may be offered a settlement that may address only current costs, not future needs. In other situations, the insurance company may dispute the bodily injury claim and make the argument that the claimant was responsible for the incident or that their injuries are unrelated to the motor vehicle collision.
As you can see, negotiating with the insurer may be challenging for anyone. Building a strong case for a fair financial recovery requires an independent investigation of a head-on collision, collection of evidence that proves what occurred, working with expert witnesses, evaluation of medical records, recommendations by treating physicians, and detailed description of how a serious injury has impacted your life today and how it is expected to affect you in the future. When dealing with difficult insurance companies, it is essential to retain legal counsel. Find out how to find the best injury attorney in your area to represent you by watching this video.
