At Least 1 Sustains Major Injuries in Sacramento Car Collision at Calvine Road and Cliffcrest Drive
Sacramento, California (February 15, 2020) – At least one person was hospitalized with major injuries after a two-car crash that happened Friday afternoon at an intersection in Sacramento, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The cars collided at about 1:44 p.m. at the corner of Calvine Road and Cliffcrest Drive.
Firefighters and paramedics who responded to the scene, confirmed that at least one person suffered major injuries in the crash including a possible broken arm.
The eastbound lanes of Calvine Road were blocked following the accident.
CHP is investigating the cause of the crash and the responsible party.
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.
