Two Injured Following Vallejo Crash — Officials of the Vallejo Police Department (VPD) stated that a serious vehicle accident took place within the city on Monday, November 12, 2018. The accident reportedly left two individuals with injuries that required hospital care. Reports indicated that the accident took place during the morning near the downtown area and involved two passenger vehicles. While the nature of the injuries that the individuals suffered has not been reported, medical officials stated that the injuries were not life-threatening. The causal factors of the accident are currently under investigation by officers of VPD.
Officers stated that the accident occurred at around 9:30 in the morning on Tennessee Street. A 50-year-old woman from Vallejo had been driving south on Sacramento street in a Black Mercedes Benz SUV. At the same time, a gray-colored Hyundai Sonata driven by a 29-year-old woman, also from Vallejo, was traveling west along Tennessee Street. The vehicles collided at the Tennessee Street/Sacramento Street intersection. According to reports, the Sonata quickly spun out and ended up facing east on Tennessee, sustaining major damage to its front end. The Mercedes rolled over onto its right side, which officers described as “badly smashed,” and collided with a nearby pole.
Officers reported that they do not know how the accident happened. However, a potential accident witness stated that one of the vehicles may have ignored a red light.
Emergency response officials stated that bystanders had been removing one of the women from her vehicle when they arrived at the scene. Both women were discovered with serious injuries and were immediately transported to nearby hospitals for treatment. Reports state that the driver of the Sonata suffered head lacerations and that one of the drivers may have sustained a spinal cord injury.
Recovering From a Crash
The process of recovering from an injury suffered during an accident can be difficult. Many accident survivors need to take special medications and complete long, painful therapy in order to return to their normal lives. Furthermore, hospital bills, therapy costs, and taking time off work because of an injury can make being a car accident survivor very expensive. These costs often leave people wondering how they will be able to keep paying necessary bills.
However, those who’ve been hurt in a crash can often recover for these damages by filing a “personal injury claim.” These claims seek to make sure that those who’ve been injured by negligent parties can pay for necessary expenses such as surgeries, medicine, and ambulance rides. In many cases, injured parties are also able to claim payments for other damages like lost wages, emotional trauma, household services, and more. To learn about what kind of payments may be available to you, it’s best to contact a Vallejo personal injury lawyer who has ample experience handling injury cases.
