Head-On Collisions on Hwy 129 in Watsonville CA

Busy highways like Highway 1 in Santa Cruz County don’t just carry dangers along their own lanes. Traffic getting on and off the highway and passing over can cause hazards for even safe drivers.

Motorists can be distracted by heavy traffic on the highway or by something in their own vehicles, like a cellphone, and suddenly veer out of their lane. The chances of a dangerous sideswipe or head-on collision then increase dramatically.

Securing Help for Victims and Families in a Watsonville Accident

Families who must grieve the loss of a loved one will, of course, never completely get over the pain of such a tragic accident.

For close relatives, filing a wrongful death lawsuit against an at-fault driver’s insurance company may be the only way to seek justice and prevent a family from facing financial turmoil. Family members facing the costs of a memorial and burial, emergency response fees, and estate settlement may be in extreme financial trouble immediately and in the years to come. A claim can ask for assistance with these expenses and other losses, like the wages the deceased had always provided through his or her job.

Surviving victims of accidents must often deal with difficult recoveries, even when injuries appear to be minor. Often the shock of the accident can mask the pain of a more serious injury that appears in the days that follow.  Filling a claim for damages against an insurance company can ensure victims get everything they need to pay for medical costs and get back on their feet after being out of work and missing paychecks.
