Details on the Rollover Crash on Carpenter and Keyes Roads in Modesto
According to CHP traffic officers, exactly what caused the rollover collision was unclear, but the impact of the collision caused the pickup truck to overturn. This caused major damage to both vehicles involved in the wreck. Authorities also reported that a traffic sign and a pole also sustained damage in the accident.
Bystanders immediately stepped in to help those involved in the car crash. Officials said the pickup truck driver was transported to the hospital for treatment of moderate to serious injuries.
What You Should Know About Car Accidents and the Claims Process
All motor vehicle collisions are overwhelming, but crashes may be particularly stressful because of the medical treatment needed for accident-related injuries, time lost from work to recover, and emotional trauma involved. What is most unfortunate is that these issues may be compounded by having to deal with mounting medical bills and difficult insurance companies looking to settle the bodily injury claim for as little as possible. After getting into a car wreck, it is essential to consult with an experienced injury lawyer immediately to learn about your rights and potential options for financial recovery.
Compensation for injuries and damages through a personal injury claim may not eliminate the pain stemming from the crash, but it may help in easing the emotional and financial consequences that have resulted. Fortunately, an attorney can help simplify the legal process by handling all aspects of the case. This includes collecting evidence to establish negligence and negotiating directly with insurance companies and defense counsel. The lawyer will work to build a strong case to prove the need for fair compensation for financial, emotional, and physical damages resulting from the traffic collision.
There are other factors that may be involved in a personal injury case for a rollover accident. This may include a lack of roof crush resistance in a rollover. Automakers have a duty to ensure the vehicles they design and manufacture are safe and meet federal standards. When a vehicle fails to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 216 on roof crush resistance, the car manufacturer’s negligence may be attributed to the exacerbation of injuries. In such situations, the automaker may be held liable for damages through an auto products liability claim. Since such cases are often challenging, it is best to leave them to the best attorney to handle. Watch the video below to learn what to look for in the best attorney for your claim.
Factors Involved in the Value of a Personal Injury Claim
There are various factors that may play a role in how much a claim is worth. This may include property damage, the severity of injuries, resulting losses, and other facts. Testimony from expert witnesses may also be involved in a claim, especially when the nature of accident-related injuries and associated damages are disputed by insurers.
