Oakland, CA – A multi-vehicle crash claimed at least one life early Friday morning, May 17, 2024, on Interstate 580 in Oakland, as reported by NBC Bay Area.

The collision occurred at approximately 12:20 AM on the eastbound lanes of I-580 near the Grand Avenue off ramp. According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), multiple vehicles were involved in the accident, with one car reportedly overturning near the center divider.

As of now, there is no further information about the deceased individual, and the identity of the victim has not been released pending notification of next of kin.

The investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing. The CHP is urging any witnesses or individuals with information about the incident to come forward to assist in their efforts to determine what led to this tragic event.

Wrongful Death Claims

While no amount of money can bring back those who lose their lives in a vehicular fatality, the emotional burden of their loss is often accompanied by a financial burden that falls on their surviving family members.

A wrongful death claim filed with the insurance provider of parties who bear even partial liability can provide compensation to help cover medical expenses, burial costs, and even the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.

However, because insurance companies carry the incentive to reduce the payout for any claim they cannot deny, the services of a skilled personal injury attorney can prove crucial in securing justice for the deceased.
