Details limited in three-vehicle crash that left one man dead
SAN BENITO – One man is dead following a July 30 three-vehicle accident in San Benito. The crash happened at approximately 10:40 p.m. at the intersection of Bonner Street and Business 77, according to City of San Benito Spokesperson David Favila.
According to Favila, the victim was a 31-year-old male, but his name was not immediately released. Other injured parties were taken to a local hospital for treatment. However, their identities were not released either. No other details about the crash were available, but the incident remains under investigation.
How is fault determined in a multi-vehicle accident?
Determining fault in a multi-vehicle car accident typically depends on which driver initially acted negligently. The driver who failed to practice his/her duty of care will likely bear responsibility. It might seem obvious who is liable, but not always. Every car accident is unique, and investigators will perform an extensive examination of what happened to arrive at a fair decision to all parties involved.
If you’re not sure how your insurance company determined fault in your multi-vehicle car accident, you can consult an attorney to help assign liability if you decide to file legal action.
Multi-vehicle car accidents can cause severe economic damage and medical injuries that are expensive to treat. It’s only fair that you would want just compensation to recover the losses you endured.
If you want a fair financial settlement for your injuries and property damage, hiring a lawyer would be wise. You might not want to rely on an insurance company to determine fault in a multi-vehicle auto accident, because an insurance company will not always have your best interests in mind.
