All of the vehicle’s occupants suffered from injuries of varying severity and were sent to the nearest hospital for further medical treatment. The police officer was also mildly injured from the crash but chose to forgo hospitalization. It is unknown whether the driver who caused the accident was also injured. Garden Grove Police Department is investigating the cause of the crash.

What Can You Do if Your Vehicle Was Struck by a Police Officer?

Research found that nearly half of police chases result in a crash-related injury. With this high injury rate, it is imperative that you know you can pursue a claim against law enforcement agencies if you suffered from injury or damages from a police chase. Filing a damage claim against a government agency is a bit more complex legally, and you should reach out to an attorney for advice before choosing to proceed any further.
