Crash at Cavitt Stallman Road intersection involves two vehicles
A T-collision east of Roseville caused a minor injury on March 30. The accident was reported at the intersection of Cavitt Stallman and Barton roads around 8:17 p.m. The report published by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) said a sedan allegedly ran a stop sign and reverse engineered another vehicle. One of the vehicles hit a fence and ended up in a neighbour’s yard.
Investigation underway to determine cause of T-Bone crash
Fire department emergency responders were called to the scene when one person was reported injured in the collision. They determined that the person suffered a minor injury. It is not known whether this patient was treated at the scene or transported to hospital for further care. The CHP is investigating the accident to assign blame and verify how it happened.
Causes of a T-Bone crash
T-Collision are particularly dangerous because the vehicle committing this offense hits another vehicle on the side, which is the weakest part of an automobile. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, approximately 18% of all T-bone collisions each year result in death. Pilot error is the usual reason. Some of the most common causes are:
- Probably the most common cause of a T-bone crash occurs when a driver crosses a stop sign, red light, or at an unsignaled four-way intersection.
- Distracted driving, such as talking on a cell phone, changing radio stations, or SMS, can prevent the driver from seeing a stop sign at an intersection.
- Drunk or drugged driving can lead to a T-crash because the driver has reduced reflexes and is less able to control their vehicle.
- Speeding is a common cause of an accident at a junction since the driver needs a longer distance to stop.
- Bad weather such as rain, snow or ice can mean that the driver must start braking earlier and more carefully to avoid a collision at an intersection.
T-Bone accident compensation recovery
Those injured by a negligent motorist often file a claim to recover the damages, which can help them avoid the financial distress that comes with lost work and increased medical bills. Types of compensation that can be recovered are:
- Medical Expenses: Any medical expenses resulting from an accident can be recovered with the help of a personal injury attorney. This includes ambulance service and hospitalization to doctors’ bills, medications, tests, surgeries and rehabilitation care. Even out-of-pocket expenses are recoverable, such as going to the doctor or for rehabilitation, if the injured party keeps receipts for their gas usage.
- Lost salary: Wages or earnings can be recovered when the injured person is unable to work. The recovery of compensation for lost wages also includes regular employment bonuses, tips, insurance and pension benefits and others. If the individual is self-employed, the recovery basis for compensation can be calculated using receipts or tax returns.
- Pain and Suffering: More than compensation for physical pain and suffering is recoverable. Emotional and psychological trauma experienced by the injured party can also be included, such as anxiety, insomnia, nightmares, and fear of driving or getting into a car. When anxieties evolve into post-traumatic stress disorder and professional help is sought to treat it, these costs are also recoverable.
