Crash Injures Two Near Newman
I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto car accident lawyer. A single vehicle accident occurred near Newman on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 27, 2017. The accident, unfortunately, caused two parties to suffer traumatic injuries.
We would like to extend our sympathies and wish for a speedy recovery to those hurt in this car accident.
A 16-year-old Newman resident was driving his 2002 Honda Civic southbound along Eastin Road in the vicinity of Stuhr Road at approximately 1:00 pm. The driver allegedly failed to slow for a stop sign and lost control of the vehicle. The Honda veered off the roadway, drove over a dirt embankment and into an orchard. The Honda overturned moments before coming to a stop on its wheels.

The passenger in the Honda suffered an arm fracture and a head laceration. The passenger was transported via air ambulance to the Memorial Medical Center.
What Caused the Car Accident?
Accidents Causing Injury to Passengers
If a passenger has been involved in a car accident, they are entitled to the right to bring a claim or personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party, person driving the car they were in, or even both. Any party that has suffered injuries due to the carelessness or inattentiveness of another can obtain compensation for damages incurred. Such losses include current and future medical expenses, financial damages and loss of happiness and enjoyment of life. However, these claims require thorough investigation and necessary evidence. It is important to consult with a seasoned Modesto personal injury lawyer to protect your rights as a passenger involved in an automobile accident.
