A single-vehicle crash ended fatally in Bakersfield on Sunday, November 1st. California Highway Patrol was the first responder at the scene. The incident happened on Highway 58, near Oswell Street, just before 8:00 p.m. The unidentified vehicle crashed into a nearby mound after it veered off-road. The vehicle was only occupied by the driver, a woman aged 37. Her name was not disclosed by authorities. She sustained fatal injuries and died before medical personnel arrived at the scene. Initial investigation of the crash found that intoxication from either drugs or alcohol was not the cause of the crash of the single-vehicle.
Can You File A Claim to Auto-Insurance After a Single-Vehicle Crash?
This depends on the circumstances of your crash. If the single-vehicle crash is caused by the driver’s negligence, then it can be difficult to receive a payout from your auto insurance, even if you file a claim. It also depends on whether personal injury protection (PIP) coverage is already included in your auto insurance. Unfortunately, if you live in California, PIP coverage is optional, so you need to check your insurance policy to determine this. If your auto insurance still refuses payment even though you have PIP coverage, be sure to dispute it. To get our legal assistance on your case, call us at (800) 310-1606.
