Sacramento County, CA – On the afternoon of Sunday, February 4, 2024, in the North Highlands area of Sacramento County, a multi-vehicle crash killed two and injured two more, according to CBS13.
Around 3:30 PM, an unnamed man in his 30s was driving a Honda Civic eastbound on Elkhorn Boulevard near Andrea Boulevard in what authorities believe to have been a reckless manner.
This led to the Honda Civic sideswiping a Nissan, causing both drivers to lose control of their vehicles, which careened into westbound traffic, where they struck a Ford Maverick.
The driver of his Civic suffered fatal injuries, as did the Maverick driver, a man in his 50s. The Nissan driver and a passenger in the Maverick, a woman in her 50s, received transport to a nearby hospital for treatment of their injuries.
Wrongful Death Claims
While no amount of money can bring back those who lose their lives in a vehicular fatality, the emotional burden of their loss is often accompanied by a financial burden that falls on their surviving family members.
A wrongful death claim filed with the insurance provider of an at-fault driver can provide compensation to help cover medical expenses, burial costs, and even the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.
Personal Injury Claims
When the actions of reckless drivers lead to injuries for others, the cost of caring for those injuries should not fall upon their victims. Filing a claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver can offer compensation to help cover medical bills and time taken off of work to recover from injuries.
However, insurance companies always have it in their interests to deny or minimize all claims they receive, which is why the help of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney can make all the difference.
