One Hospitalized After Car Crash in Brentwood
One party was hospitalized following a car crash in the Brentwood area on the afternoon of Thursday, August 26, 2021. The traffic collision involved three vehicles and occurred shortly before 4:00 p.m. on Apricot Way.
Details on the Brentwood Car Crash That Left One Hospitalized
Officers from the Brentwood Police Department (Brentwood PD) and the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD) were dispatched to the scene of the motor vehicle crash. Officials reported that four parties were involved in the three-car accident. However, only one patient was taken to an area trauma center for treatment of moderate injuries.
Photos of the accident scene released by authorities showed a tree that was knocked down in the traffic collision. Other pictures showed a damaged truck along the sidewalk of Apricot Way, a Jeep missing a rear wheel and tire, and a Lexus SUV parked on the curb of the street. Additional information on the incident was not immediately available as an investigation is ongoing by police.
Do You Need a Lawyer for a Car Accident?
Many people in Contra Costa County and across California are injured in traffic collisions each year. Whether the cause of the incident was due to driver error or just recklessness, the result may often prove the same. Even the most minor of crashes may result in traumatic injuries, including bone fractures, internal trauma, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and more. When the incident was caused by the negligence of another party or entity, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim to recover the resulting damages.
Insurers are driven to maximize their profits over the needs of claimants. The unfortunate reality is that the same approach may be applied to their insured when bringing first-party insurance claims under uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage. Even if liability is clear in the case and losses are apparent, a bodily injury claim may be denied for a wide array of reasons. That is why retaining legal counsel may make a difference in such situations. Hiring the best injury lawyer means that you can rest assured knowing your case will be in good hands and your rights will be protected while you focus on recovering.
