Local officials reported that a traumatic Auburn area car accident took place on Thursday, January 9, 2020. California Highway Patrol (CHP) indicated that at least one person was sent to the hospital following the crash. An accident investigation is reportedly currently being conducted.

This crash took place less than just one day before another fatal Auburn area car accident. The second crash happened at around 8:55 on Friday on northbound Highway 49 near Joeger Road. According to reports, a 68-year-old woman tragically lost her life, and another suffered minor injuries as a result of the incident.

Placer County Auto Accidents

Placer County has seen a significant number of car accidents over the last decade. According to UC Berkeley data, 78,517 injury-causing accidents were reported in Placer between 2008 and 2019. These accidents caused a total of 103,353 injuries as well as 890 fatalities.

The leading causes of collisions across the county during this time period were speeding, improper turning, right-of-way violations, ignoring traffic signs and/or signals, and DUI. Less common causes included tailgating, pedestrian violations, and driving on the wrong side of the road.

Collisions and Recovery

Recovering from your injuries after being hurt in a crash can be a complicated, difficult process. Often, crash survivors suffer injuries that require extensive medical procedures as well as prolonged physical therapy and medication use. All of these can be expensive, and paying for them can be even harder if your injuries have made it difficult or impossible for you to work. In other cases, survivors are left with serious mobility issues and need to pay for in-home care or accessibility modifications to their house.

After realizing how much their recovery will cost, crash survivors can feel overwhelmed. However, it’s often possible to claim payments for all of these damages by working with an Auburn personal injury lawyer and filing a claim against at-fault parties such as reckless drivers, the manufacturers of dangerous auto parts, and others. Personal injury claims can help people have the financial security they need to move forward with their lives after suffering serious trauma. To learn more about your specific situation, it’s always best to get advice personally from a trusted attorney in your area. The majority of attorneys are happy to offer free advice over the phone, so there’s no downside to reaching out for help.
