Redding Car Crash Seriously Injures Three Juveniles on Eastland Road

Three juveniles suffered serious injuries in a Redding car crash on June 16 after losing control of their vehicle. The accident happened on Eastside Road around 5:30 a.m., according to the Redding Police Department. Upon arrival at the scene, they found an older Toyota Camry that had sustained moderate damage off the road.

The three teens inside the vehicle had suffered severe to moderate injuries and were transported for medical treatment. The names of the juveniles, because of their ages, are not to be released. The investigation into the crash revealed the vehicle was speeding when the vehicle crashed. 

Impairment May Have Contributed to Injury Crash

An investigation is still underway by police. Authorities said that marijuana and alcohol appeared to be contributing factors in the Redding car crash. Those with information about the incident are urged to call the Redding Police Department. 

Accident Injuries Caused by a Minor

Under California Civil Code section 1714.1, parents or guardians can be held legally responsible for their minor children’s behavior if those actions harm another person, such as in the case of an injury accident. This statute means that if a child, for example, damages a neighbor’s property or causes injury in an accident, the parents or guardians can be deemed liable and may need to cover the costs of the damages or injuries caused by their child’s behavior. This legal accountability is termed parental negligence, a concept your lawyer can help further elucidate.

If other minors riding in the vehicle are injured, their parents or guardians can recover compensation for those injuries by holding the parents of the juvenile driver responsible. By using a free consultation with an injury lawyer after a Redding car crash involving juveniles, the parents of their injured children can find out whether or not they may place a claim to recover compensation.

Compensation for Auto Injury Accidents

If an individual gets injured because of a negligent driver, they might be eligible to receive compensation for various types of losses, including the following:

  • Medical expenses: This covers costs related to the accident, such as hospitalization, ambulance services, diagnostic tests, surgeries, medications, and rehabilitation. Future medical expenses can also be included if the injuries require ongoing treatment.
  • Pain and suffering: Compensation can also be awarded for the physical and emotional pain and suffering caused by the accident. This may encompass anxiety, nightmares, and intrusive thoughts related to the collision. The cost of professional treatment for emotional distress can also be recovered.
  • Lost wages: The injured person can seek compensation for income lost due to the accident. This includes wages, tips, bonuses, and the value of benefits like insurance and pensions.
