Curved Bridge Road Accident Involves Two Vehicles in a Head-On
A head-on crash in Rio Linda on September 14 caused at least one person to be injured. The accident happened along Curved Bridge Road just west of Dry Creek Road around 3:07 p.m. It was reported by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) that the accident involved a Nissan Quest van and a Toyota Sienna.
CHP Investigating to Determine Fault in Head-On Crash
One party involved in the head-on collision had a complaint of pain. Tow trucks were required to remove the vehicles following the crash. The accident is under investigation by the CHP to establish which driver was at fault and how the collision occurred.
The Dangers of a Head-On Crash
Head-ons are among the most dangerous kinds of car collisions. Because the speeds of both vehicles are combined when they impact each other, injuries can be catastrophic. By enlisting the help of an accident attorney, you may be able to recover the compensation that you deserve if you were struck by a negligent driver.
This is especially important when you’ve suffered a severe injury because you may be facing extensive hospitalization, possible surgeries and a long recuperative period. On top of that, you probably won’t be able to work and face a loss of income. An injury lawyer can help you recover those losses as well as compensation for all the pain and suffering you have endured.
Will I Have to Go to Court?
Probably not. About 95 percent of all traffic accident injury cases are settled through the at-fault party’s insurance company. However, because insurance companies want to make money, not pay it out, having an injury lawyer handle your case is a good idea. Worried about the cost? Don’t. Injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. This means they don’t charge you anything unless your case is won. In addition, it has been shown that those who use an injury lawyer tend to recover two to three times what they would have if they tried to handle the claim alone.
So What Will an Injury Lawyer Do for Me?
An injury lawyer will take the stress of recovering compensation and handling the insurance negotiations off your shoulders, so you can concentrate on recovering from your injury. The lawyer can investigate the case to recover the evidence needed to support your claim.
The attorney can also gather all of the documentation you need to support it and calculate what your damages should be, including future compensation if your injury is ongoing. While all this is going on, they will keep you informed of the progress and work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
