Just before 9 p.m. on March 3, there were five people who had no clue that their lives were about to change. On Cerritos Avenue, between Dallas Drive and Whitegate Road, two vehicles slammed into each other in a head-on collision. One man was killed and four others were severely injured as a result.
Right now, police have not released many details, including the name of the deceased. They have also not said whether or not alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash. At the Compass Law Group, we do know that the roadways in and around the city are unpredictable. Sometimes, even when you are doing everything right behind the wheel, the negligence of another driver can cause you harm.
If you need a car crash attorney, you can count on us to be by your side, working diligently to secure the compensation you need in the aftermath of a devastating incident.
What To Do After A Crash
In the immediate aftermath of a crash, your adrenaline will be pumping. This can mask the feeling of any injuries you may have. Because of this, you may not think you need any medical assistance.
- If you suspect you have any injuries, seek medical treatment.
Insurance companies look for lapses in time between crashes and medical treatment. They will use these lapses against you when you are seeking compensation. Often, the full extent of car crash injuries is not known until hours later, especially when it comes to internal injuries. Let a doctor diagnose you.
