Details on the Head-On Collision Reported in Turlock

According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), a red Ford Focus was involved in a head-on collision with a Chevrolet Silverado on State Route 99 just north of Fulkerth Avenue. The impact of the collision allegedly propelled the Chevrolet on top of the center divider, CHP traffic officers reported.

The Chevrolet driver, a 21-year-old Delhi man, sustained injuries described as minor in the crash. His passenger, a 20-year-old Turlock woman, suffered serious injuries. Both parties were transported to Modesto area hospitals for treatment. Sadly, the Ford driver was pronounced deceased at the scene. Officials have identified the decedent as 44-year-old Marvin Hernandez of San Francisco.

What You Should Know About Head-On Collisions and Insurance Claims

Being involved in a head-on collision may be a traumatic, life-changing experience. The same can be said for the loss of a close relative in a devastating accident that impacts the entire family. When a person suffers injuries or a loved one is lost in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, the injured party or survivors of the decedent may bring a personal injury or wrongful death case against the at-fault party for damages incurred.

When recovering from injuries or grieving the loss of a beloved family member, your focus should be on taking care of yourself and your loved ones, not dealing with difficult insurance companies. The unfortunate reality is that insurers do not have the best interests of injured parties and surviving family members at heart. When an insurance claim is brought for the recovery for resulting damages, the full and fair value of the case may not be considered by insurance carriers. That is because insurance companies are focused on protecting their bottom line, and their way of doing so is paying as little as possible on claims.

No matter what caused the head-on collision resulting in serious injury or death, it is essential to know your legal rights.
