1 Hospitalized after Calipatria Multi-Car Crash at Winslow and Davis Roads, May 22
At least one person suffered major injuries and was taken to Desert Regional Hospital for treatment.
An investigation into the crash is underway.
When an auto 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 auto accidents or their family members to seek legal help from a seasoned attorney who can conduct an independent investigation and fight for their rights.
