Picking the Right Auto Insurance
Being in an automobile collision is often one of the worst experiences a person goes through. This experience is even worse when there is not enough insurance to pay for all of the injuries and suffering that result from the crash. At the Barnett, Bennett & Scott LLP, we have dealt with thousands of people who have been involved in auto collisions. Many of these people cannot get all of the help they deserve because of inadequate insurance or the wrong type of insurance. Many times people tell us that they have “full coverage” believing that they are adequately protected. In reality there is no such thing as “full coverage.” Make sure you know the details of your auto insurance policy rather than just believing that you are “fully covered.” (more…)
Man Killed in Cab Accident in Fairfield
On Monday, March 16, 2015, a Loyalton man was killed in a cab crash in Fairfield. The cab, a Ford Crown Victoria, was traveling approximately 60 to 65 miles per hour on Interstate 680 northbound at the time of the collision. The crash occurred at about 1:05 a.m. The victim was pronounced dead at roughly 1:33 a.m.
The cab driver lost control of the vehicle, and it traveled to the right and off of the roadway. Then, the car became airborne and flipped. There were three people in the car at the time, the driver and two passengers; all of them were wearing their seatbelts prior to the collision. The cab sustained significant damage and the driver’s airbag deployed. (more…)
Car Drives into Business in Vacaville
A car crashed into a building in the 1000 block of Hume Way on March 11, 2013. The accident occurred at 9:54 a.m. The car crashed through the front doors of a salon and was entirely inside the building when the car finally came to a stop.
Thankfully, no one was harmed as a result of this crash, and the car did not cause any fires (which is common when cars drive into buildings). In fact, the building inspector determined that the structural integrity of the building was fine, but the business could obviously not be accessed from the front doors. There was one employee in the salon at the time of the crash, and while he did not appear to be injured, he was taken to the hospital as a precaution. (more…)
