Minor Injured in I-5, Rowlee Road Crash in Bakersfield; 2 Medivac Helicopters Required

Bakersfield, CA – A serious crash on southbound Interstate 5 near Rowlee Road has resulted in multiple injuries and prompted a swift response from emergency services, including the launch of two medivac helicopters, according to KBAK.

Personal Injury Claims

Parents whose children are injured in an automobile accident are understandably more focused on the emotional burden of those injuries than the financial. It can therefore be extremely helpful to enlist the aid of a personal injury attorney who can assist with handling issues of legal liability for victims and their families.

The unexpected burden of medical bills and other related costs can financially devastate an already emotionally devastated family. While no amount of money can truly address the emotional toll of a loved one’s injury, it is only fair that at-fault parties take on the financial responsibility for their actions.

A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can relieve victims and their families of these burdens, sort through issues of liability and negotiate with insurance companies to ensure proper compensation is received.
