1 Hospitalized after Fresno Car Collision at S Temperance Avenue and E North Avenue
Fresno, California (May 23, 2020) – One person was hospitalized with severe injuries after being involved in a two-car accident that happened Saturday morning in Fresno, the California Highway Patrol said.
The crash transpired at about 10:48 a.m. at S Temperance Avenue and E North Avenue.
Authorities said a pickup truck and a sedan collided for unknown reasons. One of the vehicles overturned in the crash.
An occupant in the sedan was stuck in the vehicle.
Emergency crews responded to the scene and transported one person to Community Regional Medical Center for treatment of severe injuries.
Both vehicles were towed away from the collision scene.
CHP is investigating the cause of the crash.
When a car accident occurs, the responsible party will be required by law to compensate the victims for medical expenses, lost earnings, and future loss of earnings or medical care. In serious accidents, the responsible driver may be held accountable for paying non-economic damages, including emotional trauma, pain, and suffering.
Mark Shayani, the Managing Attorney at Pacific Attorney Group, says determining where liability lies is not direct and straightforward due to varying factors being involved and the fact that most people will want to avoid responsibility even when they were at fault. Additionally, the insurance companies that cover the car that will be found at fault will want to reduce the amounts to be offered as compensation to the lowest levels possible.
“It is of the utmost importance that you do not give any statements or admit fault if approached by the other driver’s insurance company. Anything you say could be used against you at a later date when the liability of the collision is determined.” Shayani said.
Mr. Shayani advises victims of car accidents or their family members to seek legal help from a seasoned attorney who can conduct an independent investigation and fight for their rights.
