Three Injured in Lone Tree Way Crash
The Contra Costa County Fire Protection District (CCCFPD) was called to the scene of a motor vehicle crash on Lone Tree Way and reported that the incident left three parties injured. The car accident was said to have occurred on the morning of Wednesday, May 18, 2022, and involved three vehicles.
Details on the Crash on Lone Tree Way That Left Three Injured
The three-vehicle crash occurred shortly after 10:00 a.m. at Golf Course Road and Lone Tree Way, according to CCCFPD. The incident prompted the request of three American Medical Response (AMR) units and caused the blockage of several traffic lanes.
The three injured parties, a 60-year-old man, a 51-year-old woman, and a 37-year-old man, were all taken to an area hospital. Two of the three injured parties were reported to be in critical condition and the other with serious injuries. An investigation into the motor vehicle collision is underway by the Antioch Police Department, and additional information on the crash has not yet been released.
Things to Know About Motor Vehicle Accidents and Personal Injury Claims
Traffic collisions in Antioch occur all too often because of the busy roads and highways. When another party’s negligent actions cause a crash resulting in harm to others, an injured party may seek compensation from the negligent driver for damages incurred. Given that a motor vehicle crash may have the potential to result in traumatic injuries, economic and non-economic damages will consider the financial impact and intangible harm that has resulted from the incident. This may include costs of treatment of injuries from the crash, wage loss from missing work to recover from the collision, pain and suffering, and more. When multiple parties are involved in a crash and serious injuries are involved, the question of whether the at-fault party has enough bodily injury liability coverage for the incident may come to mind. Fortunately, there may be recourse for injured parties if the other side did not have auto insurance or carries state minimum limits if they have uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage.
It is recommended to retain legal counsel right away after a motor vehicle crash resulting in traumatic injuries. However, many may wonder why working with a lawyer is necessary. The unfortunate reality that may present after getting into a car accident is that the insurance company may look for ways to devalue or deny a personal injury claim. Doing so allows them to maximize profit margins. Having an injury lawyer step in means that they will conduct an independent investigation of the incident and collect the evidence necessary to prove liability. From there, the attorney will handle communications and negotiations with insurers, including your own when bringing an uninsured and underinsured motorist claim, to seek fair compensation on your behalf. Remember that the outcome of your injury case is dependent on the lawyer you select to represent you. Therefore, you want to work with one that has specific qualities.
