Two-Vehicle Collision on Power Inn Road

A two-vehicle collision occurred on Power Inn Road resulting in injury on May 22. The accident happened near the Lindale area between Florin Road and Elder Creek Road shortly before 4:00 in the afternoon. It was reported by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) that a white Chevy Impala and a brown Buick were involved. The accident did not block the roadway. However, one person was injured and required medical attention. An ambulance was called for that person to transport them to a nearby hospital. Determination of how the two-vehicle collision occurred is being investigated by authorities with the CHP.

Accident Injuries in a Two-Vehicle Collision

A car crash injury can occur in any type of motor vehicle accident, even in mild ones. Some of the injuries that occur are as follows:

  • Back and neck injuries: Cervical strain or sprain, a herniated disk or even spinal cord damage can occur as the result of a two-vehicle collision. Rear end collisions often cause cervical strain or sprain, commonly called whiplash.
  • Injuries to the head or brain: Fractures to the skull, serious lacerations, concussions, and traumatic brain injuries occur in some accidents. These types of injuries are often found in front end collisions caused by a wrong way driver or a rollover.
  • Soft tissue damage: Injuries to tendons, ligaments, or muscles can occur in any type of motor vehicle accident. Depending on the part of the body where the injury occurs, pain may persist for a long time. Soft tissue damage can happen as a result of the seat belt or airbag. It is also more common in side-impact collisions.
  • Amputation: Amputations can occur in a two-vehicle collision. It may also be necessary to treat severe crush injuries. An individual who has had a limb or digit amputated may struggle to re-enter the job force or interact socially.
  • Broken bones: Simple fractures can heal in several months but are enough to disrupt a person’s life and work. Complex fractures may require surgery and end up causing long-term pain. Broken bones can happen in most types of motor vehicle accidents.
  • Spinal cord damage: This serious type of injury can cause permanent paralysis. The extent of the paralysis depends on where the damage to the spine occurred.
  • Burns: Burn injuries are less common but can result from a car crash. Minor burns heal, but more serious ones may require skin grafts and extensive hospitalization.

How a Lawyer Helps

Consulting with an injury lawyer if you’ve been harmed through negligence is a good move toward obtaining compensation. Besides representing you with the insurance company, a lawyer helps with other options to get what you need and deserve. An attorney will review the collision report and conduct their own investigation using accident reconstruction and other techniques. The lawyer can build a strong case to present in civil court. By using their services, you will be better able to recover the cost of medical care, reimburse your lost wages, and collect for your pain and suffering. Personal injury lawyers collect no fee until you win your case.
