Any vehicle accident that causes you serious injuries is a stressful thing and any legal case arising from that accident can be complex. You have amassed, and likely will incur, huge medical bills. You probably will miss a considerable period of time at work, leading to a lot of lost earnings. Getting the compensation you need depends on pursuing the right defendants, but identifying those “right” defendants demands in-depth investigation to get the complete picture. That is where having the right San Mateo vehicle accident attorney helps immeasurably. Your skilled legal counsel can get started right away doing the investigation and initiating the discovery processes required to get the answers that will be key to your success in litigation. You know you need the information; your skilled attorney knows how to go about getting that information for you.
Take, for example, this tragic chain-reaction accident that occurred last month in Contra Costa County. Here’s what we know based upon a preliminary California Highway Patrol investigation, as reported by KPIX. The accident began when a Toyota SUV overturned and ended up on its side in the far-left travel lane of Interstate 80 in Richmond. After that, a Honda crashed into the SUV, followed by a Toyota sedan crashing into the SUV.
Three of the occupants of the SUV suffered major injuries, and a fourth died at the scene. KPIX also reported that “drugs and alcohol” did “not appear to be a factor” in the accident.
