Streets and highways around Fresno can fill up during the afternoon rush hours and even well before prime traffic hours begin. Cars, SUVs, and Trucks can begin streaming through busy intersections to create increased hazards for motorists.
Drivers can allow themselves to become careless, and perhaps distracted, and run red lights, veer out of lanes, and make a turn when they don’t have the right-of-way. Reckless drivers can also put other motorists in harm’s way by traveling too fast through intersections or driving far too aggressively when approaching a crossroads.
These mistakes can cause collisions and put drivers and passengers at risk of serious injuries and leave them facing long, expensive recoveries.

The California Highway Patrol says four vehicles were involved in the collision. A man in one of the vehicles suffered serious lacerations to the head in the impact. He was flown by Skylife Air Ambulance to the hospital.

Seeking Assistance for Fresno County Car Accident Victims
Victims should never have to worry about paying for their hospital care out of their own pockets after an accident caused by the negligence of another motorist. Victims should also be supported while they miss valuable work time recovering from a serious injury.
These expenses and more can be listed in a claim for damages leveled against an at-fault driver’s auto insurance policy. Insurance companies can dispute the facts of a car accident and try to transfer blame to victims. Victims must often battle these “bad faith” practices just to get the compensation they need to pay for their medical recoveries and restore their lives to normal.
