1 Hospitalized after Nipton Crash on 15 Freeway near Cima Road off-Ramp
Nipton, California (February 14, 2020) – One person was hospitalized with serious injuries after a traffic crash involving a semi-truck occurred early Friday morning in Nipton, the California Highway Patrol reported.
The crash happened at about 2:08 a.m. on southbound 15 Freeway just north of Cima Road off-ramp.
Authorities said a sedan collided with a semi for unknown reasons.
A male party in the sedan was injured to the interior of his mouth and had a possible head injury. Paramedics responded to the scene to transport the victim to the hospital.
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.
