A recent accident that took place on a rainy evening involved a female and two males driving in a 1995 Buick. The male driver passed two vehicles, then careened off the road and crashed into a tree after sliding down an embankment. The man driving the vehicle didn’t sustain any serious injuries, but the other man in the car was critically injured and hospitalized. After incurring serious head trauma, the female was pronounced dead at the scene.
All three people were trapped in the car and had to be removed by EMS professionals. Nobody in the car was wearing a seatbelt. The driver who was injured told the police that he was temporarily unable to see because the 18-wheeler that he passed sprayed his windshield with sheets of water.
There are many possible outcomes in a situation like this – including a wrongful death suit filed on behalf of the woman who died, and/or a personal injury lawsuit filed by the injured passenger. In a situation where the exact details of the accident are unclear, it’s wise to seek counsel from an experienced personal injury attorney.
If you or someone you know is injured an accident that was likely due to reckless driving, it’s best not to deal on your own with an insurance provider; it’s highly possible that one could lose out on compensation he/she is entitled to receive.
