Driver killed in three-vehicle crash on Interstate 80 was 18 years old, CHP says

Sacramento Bee

New details have emerged from the California Highway Patrol after a fatal crash Thursday on Interstate 80 in Roseville.

In a news release, the CHP’s Auburn unit said officers were called out to the three-vehicle crash on eastbound I-80 east of the Douglas Boulevard exit around 9:45 p.m.

Responding officers found an 18-year-old Roseville man dead at the scene. His identification would be made by the Placer County Coroner’s Office, officers said.

Thousands may lose access to healthcare services under new auto insurance law

Up North Live

EMMET COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- This month Michigan’s new auto insurance law went into effect giving drivers a choice on what kind of personal injury protection they want.

And while the law lowered the cost of insurance for some, it also cut reimbursement rates in half, meaning thousands across the state could lose healthcare services.

Ron Cease of Levering lost his left arm and leg in a 2007 auto crash.

Today, he needs special care, care he said he will lose because of new auto reform laws.

“Three O’clock Sunday, when Ms. Linda’s shift is over with, I could be in trouble,” Cease said.

Trouble, because under the new law, reimbursement rates can be cut nearly in half.

“I don’t know how you’re going to do it. I don’t know how companies are going to do it,” Angel Heart Home Care Owner Dennis Kelly said. “What they’ve done in my opinion, is they’ve thrown it to the families, or to the injured person themselves and their families to go out and shop and try to find people to provide this care.”

What Damages are Available in a Personal Injury Case?

Legal Desire

You’ve been injured in an accident, and now you’re wondering what all accident victims think about in the days and weeks after an accident. How will I pay my bills? In addition to not being able to go to work and earn a paycheck, you now have hospital bills, pharmacy bills, physical therapy bills, etc. You didn’t ask to be put in this situation, and you know it’s not right that you should have to suffer financially, as well as physically because someone else was careless. If you have been injured in an accident, you should contact a personal injury law firm to discuss your claim, but it might also be helpful to know what kinds of damages that you’re eligible for prior to talking to a lawyer.

Economic Damages

Before getting to intangible damages, let’s discuss the money that you’re out. Economic damages are the costs of anything that you can attach a price tag to. For instance, if you were transported to the hospital, you might have a bill for the emergency room visit, the ambulance, x-rays, bloodwork, service charges, and taxes. This hospital bill would be included in your economic damages. You could also be reimbursed for any follow-up appointments you have, specialists you may need to see, and more. In addition to medical bills, economic damages would cover your property damage and lost wages if you weren’t able to work.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are not as easily measurable. These include your pain and suffering, which is a catchall term for the physical pain, mental trauma, aggravation, grief caused by your accident. These damages can be quite extensive in severe accidents. For instance, if you lost a limb or one of your faculties, the alteration to your life may be extraordinarily dramatic. In wrongful death cases, noneconomic damages can include loss of consortium, which means that you’ve lost the relationship with your spouse or companion. It’s important to discuss noneconomic damages with a personal injury lawyer. They are familiar with the types of damages paid out in similar cases in your state.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are awarded by the court to punish the behavior of the defendant. Punitive damages aren’t awarded in most personal injury suits. If the jurisdiction does allow punitive damages, they are usually only awarded when the negligent party’s behavior was intentional and wanton.
