Woman Seriously Hurt During Vallejo Crash
One woman was left with serious injuries following an auto accident that took place in Vallejo on Wednesday, June 5, 2019. According to authorities of the Vallejo Police Department (VPD), the crash involved two vehicles and took place during the night. The latest updates available indicated that the woman was in critical condition at a local hospital. Additionally, one more individual suffered minor injuries during the crash.
Police reported that the accident happened at around 10:45 p.m. A 53-year-old woman from Vallejo had been driving in her 2014 Kia Forte heading south on Lemon Street. The woman attempted to make a left turn in order to enter the eastbound side of Interstate Highway 780. While she was turning, a 2002 Ford Explorer driving west after exiting Highway 780 collided with the Kia at the Lemon Street intersection. The crash caused serious damage to both vehicles.
According to police, responders were immediately dispatched to the scene of the accident. When emergency officials arrived, they discovered that the Kia driver was critically injured and had her rushed to a hospital via ground ambulance. The driver of the Explorer was found with only minor injuries. Whether or not the Explorer driver received any medical care for his or her injuries has not yet been reported.
VPD is currently conducting an investigation into this incident in order to determine what factors may have been involved. However, officers involved in the investigation have not yet stated what they suspect to have been the cause of the accident. Intersection collisions are very common and can be caused by factors like driving while distracted by a mobile device, poor roadway design, malfunctioning or missing signage, DUI, and more.
Contacting an Attorney
When accidents happen, it can leave families feeling overwhelmed. Knowing that someone you love has been seriously injured can cause a lot of stress and many people worry about how they will be able to pay for medical expenses, lost income, and other damages related to the traumatic accident.
Because having a loved one in the hospital is such a stressful event, many people want to delay getting in touch with an injury attorney. However, negligent parties usually don’t need to deal with the same stress and start defending themselves from liability right away. For this reason, having a lawyer on your side as soon as possible after an accident can be critical in claiming the full recompense you deserve for your damages.
How Do I Find a Trustworthy Lawyer?
One of the big reasons that people often delay calling a lawyer is because they don’t know how to find a lawyer that they can trust with such an important job. This is a valid concern, but there are ways that you can easily make sure an attorney has enough experience and skill to handle your case.
