According to the California Highway Patrol, a four-car crash in North Sacramento resulted in the death of one person. The multi-vehicle accident happened around 11:45 p.m. on August 3, 2020.

Two vehicles were traveling west on Elkhorn Boulevard, approaching the intersection of East Levee Road. A Toyota sedan was behind an Audi sedan. The driver of the Toyota sedan suddenly moved over into the eastbound lanes crashing head-on into a Dodge van.

After crashing head-on into the Dodge van, the Toyota sideswiped the Audi sedan and a Toyota pickup truck that had been traveling behind the Dodge van.

Emergency medical personnel arrived at the scene and treated all four drivers. The 50-year-old man driving the Dodge van died at the accident scene. The other drivers sustained minor injuries in the multi-vehicle accident.

The driver who caused the accident, 29-year-old Amardeep Singh, received treatment at Mercy San Juan Medical Center. After his release from the hospital, police booked Singh at the Sacramento County Main Jail on multiple criminal charges. Singh faces charges of vehicular manslaughter and felony DUI related to the multi-vehicle accident.

Determining Fault for a Multi-Vehicle Accident Can Be Difficult

In the above multi-vehicle accident, it appears clear that the drunk driver caused the crash. He moved into the opposite lane, causing a head-on crash with another vehicle. However, with the full facts of the case, it is impossible to know whether any of the other drivers share liability for the cause of the accident.

In a multi-vehicle accident, all factors related to the cause of the accident must be identified. Parties who contributed to the cause of a multi-vehicle accident can be held liable for damages. In some cases, more than one driver may be liable for a multi-vehicle accident.

When multiple parties share liability for the cause of a crash, accident victims can sue each driver for damages. By naming all parties involved in the crash in a lawsuit, it increases the chance that a victim receives maximum compensation for a car accident claim.

What Compensation Can I Receive for a Car Accident Claim?

The amount of money you might receive for a car accident claim depends on the severity of your injuries, the total of your financial losses, and several other factors. A car accident can result in a variety of injuries including:

An accident victim can receive reimbursement for the cost of medical treatment, personal care, loss of income, and other out-of-pocket costs. Additionally, the victim can also recover compensation for pain and suffering damages.

Pain and suffering damages are the noneconomic damages caused by a car crash. Those damages include physical pain, mental anguish, emotional distress, permanent impairments, scarring, and loss of enjoyment of life.

A Sacramento car accident lawyer investigates the multi-vehicle accident to gather evidence proving who caused the crash. The attorney calculates the value of damages and handles filing claims and negotiating settlements.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!
