Tustin, CA – Injuries Reported Following Car Crash at Yorba St & Santa Clara Ave

Tustin, CA (December 22, 2022) – On Wednesday afternoon, December 22, an accident was reported in Tustin that resulted in injuries and caused significant traffic delays.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the accident occurred in the afternoon, around 1 p.m. The accident occurred when two vehicles entered the intersection at Yorba Street and Santa Clara Avenue at the same time and collided, which resulted in the vehicles incurring major damage. One vehicle was a Toyota Corolla, but there is no information about the other vehicle. Both of the vehicles were heavily damaged.

Paramedics were called to the scene to help those hurt in the accident. Firefighters helped the people from the wreckage and assessed injuries. At least one person was treated for injuries at the scene. It is unclear how many others were injured or if anyone was transported to the hospital.

The force of the impact caused major damage to the vehicles, blocked the roadway, and caused traffic to be backed up. Traffic was diverted while crews helped people from their cars, tended to injuries, and cleaned up the wreckage. Two tow trucks were called to the scene to remove the damaged vehicles.

The authorities are still investigating the exact circumstances surrounding the crash and the events leading up to the collision.

Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for everyone’s full recovery.

Car Accidents in California

California has more registered vehicles than any other state in the country and is one of the most dangerous places to drive. Every day roads are flooded with traffic and are busy with long commutes and traffic jams. Car accidents also happen every day in California, and many result in serious injuries or even death.

After being injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you have a few options on how to proceed. You can choose one of the following:

  1. Do nothing and pay for the costs associated with the accident out of pocket
  2. Submit a claim and take on the insurance company on your own
  3. Hire a personal injury attorney to represent you who will fight for you to get the compensation you deserve

Despite what the commercials claim, insurance companies are not on your side and are not looking out for your best interest after an accident happens. They stay profitable by paying as little as possible on personal injury claims. The other person’s insurance company will likely deny responsibility and not want to pay any of the damages you’ve suffered. When dealing with the insurance company, you will not be dealing with your agent but, instead, an insurance adjuster who is trained to look for ways to deny your claim or limit your compensation.

Being in a car accident is stressful. The stress continues as you are recovering and dealing with the insurance company. From new financial worries to physical injuries, you may be wondering how you will move forward. A trusted car accident lawyer can help you understand the next steps, including your legal rights and options.

If you were in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you should speak to an experienced car accident lawyer right away. Contact a Tustin car accident attorney by calling (888) 539-3154 to see how we can help you.
