5 Freeway car crash Newman September 6NEWMAN, California (September 6, 2016) – A major injury collision took place on the northbound Interstate 5 Freeway Tuesday afternoon, according to California Highway Patrol dispatch team.

The multi-vehicle crash occurred abut 3:12 p.m. near Stuhr Road off-ramp. CHP described three of at least five vehicles involved as a box truck, a Toyota Venza and a black GMC Terrain.

 

In a report by The Modesto Bee, CHP said the driver of a small car stepped on his brakes upon seeing an officer on the northbound shoulder contacting a man walking on the highway. The traffic came to an abrupt stop.

A fifth vehicle behind the small car, a box truck, veered right to avoid hitting the fourth car in line but clipped the back of it and tore off the side of the truck.

The box truck then careened left and collided with the third, second and finally the small car ahead.

The driver of the small car was ejected landed in the fast lane, Leon said. He was seriously injured and was then airlifted to Doctors Medical Center for treatment.

Meanwhile, the condition of the other parties involved in the wreck remained unknown. CHP said the pedestrian left the scene and could not be located.

Authorities are still investigating the incident.

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.
