Five people were injured in a Sacramento light rail train accident. Sacramento City Fire reports that the accident happened at 10th and O streets about 11:40 a.m. The train hit a BMW and dragged the car until it the car smashed into a tree. The BMW also collided with a Toyota Corolla. One of the passengers of the BMW was hospitalized with minor injuries. Few passengers of the train also suffered minor injuries. The Sacramento accident remains under investigation.
People use public transportation such as light rail train for many different reasons, and one of them is to avoid the responsibility and risks that come with driving, especially late at night and early in the morning. However, using such an approach does not guarantee safety.
Injured victims of accidents always have to deal with a number of issues following each crash. It is very important to find medical attention immediately. You always have to get documentation of your treatment and prognosis as soon as you can. Talk to your insurer as required, but don’t discuss potential accident causes. Consult with your lawyer first. Do not talk to any other insurance companies, and do not settle out of court without legal advice.
Drivers owe a legal duty of care to their passengers that requires them to keep those passengers out of situations of unreasonable danger and risk of harm. It’s quite possible that the all injured victims could pursue legal claims against the Regional Transit. If successful, these claims would provide those who were harmed with several different forms of damages. However, this analysis regarding whether or not legal claims should be filed should only be completed with the help of California personal injury lawyers who have spent years holding defendants of all types accountable for the harm they have caused.
All injured victims in accidents like this are strongly urged to consult with an experienced Sacramento Personal Injury Attorney to protect their rights. An experienced auto accident lawyer should also advise victims about how their car insurance policy or other insurance policies will apply to an accident.
