Los Banos Crash on I-5 Freeway Monday on New Year’s Day, 1/1

Los Banos Crash on I-5 Freeway Monday on New Year's Day, 1/1Three Injured and Ejected From Vehicle Following Crash on I-5

LOS BANOS (January 2, 2018)- According to the Merced Sun-Star, a major injury collision involving a single vehicle was reported Monday morning of New Year’s Day on I-5 close to the Russell Avenue exit.

CHP officials were notified of a crash at 7:40 a.m. where the driver of a black Toyota Camry, a 20-year-old man of Salinas, lost control of the vehicle. The Camry struck the center divider and overturned multiple times before finally coming to rest.

There were two passengers in the vehicle accompanying the driver, both who are only being ID’d as a 16-year-old woman and a 19-year-old man. Both passengers and the driver were each ejected from the Toyota all suffering major injuries.

All three victims were quickly rushed to unspecified hospitals located somewhere in Fresno, per the Merced Sun-Star.

At this time, California Highway Patrol is currently looking into whether or not the driver of the vehicle was under the influence or if there may have been another reason for losing control and crashing.

No further details have been released thus far.

A forensic examination of the vehicle, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine what ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast the driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, or whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicle such as final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, those injured and not found responsible, the 16-year-old woman and the 19-year-old, may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver pending the investigation results. Victims would then have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, and lost future income.

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. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.
