Speed May Have Contributed to Rancho Murieta Injury Accident on Scott Road

A Rancho Murieta injury accident happened on May 22 that may have involved speeding. The collision occurred on Scott Road near Latrobe Road around 8:30 p.m., which was reported by the California Highway Patrol (CHP). Authorities reported a man in a Toyota Camry going north along Scott Road when the accident happened. 

Three People Suffer Injuries in Rancho Murieta Injury Accident

Riding with the driver were two women, one using her seatbelt and the other without it fastened. The driver was reportedly speeding and went out of control, going off the road and striking a tree. The woman who was not using her seatbelt suffered major injuries and was transported by air to a hospital. The driver and other women sustained moderate injuries and were also taken to a hospital. 

Authorities Determining Whether Drugs or Alcohol Contributed to the Crash

Authorities have not yet assessed whether drugs or alcohol played a part in the cause of the crash. The CHP traffic collision unit is investigating the incident. 

Accident Injuries When the Driver Is at Fault

When the vehicle driver with passengers commits an act of negligence that causes an accident, that person is responsible for the occupant’s injuries. Injured parties should not have to take financial responsibility for their medical bills and other losses. An accident lawyer can review the case, determine if the driver is liable, and help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Medical Bills

Those who are injured in car accidents often end up with high medical bills. From the ambulance fee, hospitalization, doctors’ bills, possible surgeries and testing, the amount can add up quickly. In addition, the more serious the injuries are, the higher the costs. The injured party can recover those expenses by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver.

Lost Wages

People in the crash may be in the hospital or recuperating at home and unable to work as a result of the Rancho Murieta injury accident. As a result, they do not receive their usual wages. The injured party might take unpaid vacation or sick leave. Some have to take a job that pays less because they can no longer perform their previous job. In these cases, the pay difference is recoverable. If a permanent disability occurs, the income is recoverable until retirement age.

Pain and Suffering

Pain/Compensation: Compensation for an injured party’s emotional and physical pain and suffering is recoverable. People who have been involved in a Rancho Murieta injury accident develop anxiety, depression, sleep problems and additional symptoms. If they seek treatment from a professional, that expense can be recovered.
