Bakersfield Crash Investigation
Police are reviewing the circumstances that caused this collision in an effort to determine liability.
When a person has been killed due to another driver’s negligence, the family of the person who died may wish to recover their financial losses. There are often medical expenses, lost wages, property damage and in the case of a death, funeral expenses. It’s important to note, however, that it’s quite common for insurance companies to try and avoid paying out a claim. They may also make an offer to settle for far less than the full amount owed.
