A driver in a 1993 Chevrolet Blazer was traveling west on Lucky Seven Road while a driver in a 2000 Volkswagen was heading north on Merle Wolfe Road. According to law enforcement, the driver in the Blazer failed to yield at a stop sign and struck the Volkswagen. The driver of the Volkswagen sustained multiple severe injuries and was airlifted to a Texas medical center, where she was listed in serious condition. The driver of the Blazer and two passengers refused treatment at the scene. Police report that the occupants in both vehicles were wearing seatbelts at the time of the collision.
When someone has been seriously injured in a car accident, he or she may be facing weeks or months of painful surgeries, physical therapy and other treatments. During that time, medical and personal expenses may accumulate, leaving the accident victim in financial distress.
If the accident was the result of another driver’s careless behavior, such as failing to yield the right of way, speeding or distracted driving, then the victim may be eligible to collect financial compensation.
A Texas personal injury lawyer could answer questions and assess an individual case to determine a fair settlement amount. In addition, a lawyer may be able to handle many aspects of a lawsuit by negotiating directly with the insurance company. If the case requires litigation, the lawyer could provide the appropriate representation for the plaintiff.
