Even the most cautious drivers in Missouri can be confronted with incidents where they have little or no control. If one vehicle hits another vehicle and sends the second vehicle out of control, it can cause multiple negative outcomes. There can be a chain reaction accident with head-on crashes, T-bone collisions and worse. It can result in catastrophic injuries and death. Those who have been injured or lost a loved one in car accidents must think about everything they must deal with in the future due to the incident and consider a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation.
A car being driven by a 19-year-old male hit another car from behind. The impact sent the second vehicle into oncoming traffic. A third vehicle then hit the second vehicle and the driver’s side was T-boned. The driver of the third vehicle was killed. The driver of the second vehicle was taken to the hospital to undergo emergency surgery. She is listed in critical condition. The passenger was stable, as was the driver of the first vehicle. The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
A car accident can happen in the blink of an eye and without warning. In that one second, a person’s life can change forever. For those who were injured, their lives can become substantially more difficult. There might be medical expenses, loss of the ability to work and the need for extensive assistance from family members. This can put a strain not just on the victim’s life, but on the family as well. When there is a fatality, it is an entirely different set of problems, including funeral costs, the emotional impact and financial worries.
A lawsuit is often the only strategy to recover compensation for all that was lost. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, it may be wise to consider contacting a personal injury lawyer to discuss your case.
