 Clavey Carlson Fatal Crash McHenry Avenue (Hwy 108), Kiernan Ave in ModestoMODESTO, Calif. (Sept. 8, 2021) — Clavey Carlson, 25, of Modesto, died Tuesday night after his car rear-ended a trailer being pulled by a van on McHenry Avenue.

The young man was driving southbound on McHenry Avenue (SR-108) in a Subaru. He allegedly struck the back of a trailer traveling about 45 mph being pulled by a van about 9:10 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol and the Modesto Bee.

The collision happened just south of Kiernan Avenue, police said.

The trailer broke free from the van during the collision. Meanwhile, the van continued traveling in a southwesterly direction before it went off the roadway and overturned.

Also, the Subaru went off the west side of the roadway and crashed into a utility pole. The pole was sheared off at the base, according to the CHP. Paramedics transported the Subaru driver to Doctors Medical Center where he later died of his injuries.

The Stanislaus County Coroner’s Office identified the man who died as Clavey Carlson.

Additionally, the driver of the van suffered minor injuries in the crash. Authorities identified the driver as 43-year-old Damien McGee.

Police are investigating whether or not speed was a factor in the crash.

Whether drugs or alcohol were a factor remains under investigation.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
