Very few details have been released about this multi-car crash, but we do know that five people were injured, and four of them were transported to local hospitals for treatment. A four-year-old child was taken to Angel Medical Center. A driver and a passenger in one of the vehicles had to be airlifted to Mission Hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

Expenses Associated With Car Accidents

 

Initial hospital bills are just the beginning of the expenses associated with car accidents. Depending upon the severity of the injuries, you could be looking at long-term medical care needs like physical or occupational therapy or multiple surgical procedures or hospitalizations. Additionally, if you're an income earner, you're out of work while the bills are adding up. In some cases, it may be necessary to stay home to take care of a loved one who has been injured in an accident.
