Car crashes have the potential to lead to serious injuries and death. Passing into another person’s lane could result in a head-on collision, while entering an intersection at the wrong point could cause a serious t-bone accident. No matter what the cause is, no one should have to go through the pain and suffering of an accident.
Victims have a right to pursue a claim against any driver that causes them injuries. For example, if you’re struck by a driver who was using a phone to text others while behind the wheel, then you have the right to pursue a claim. The victim in this case might want to do the same.
A driver in New Hampshire left one woman seriously injured after he caused a three-car collision. According to the news report, the 28-year-old man had been attempting to pass a number of vehicles on the highway when he collided with a woman’s vehicle. That woman, who was driving a Kia, had to be airlifted to the hospital for medical treatment. Her injuries were reportedly life-threatening at the time of the news report on March 27.
Another vehicle was also involved in the crash, but the driver was not injured. The 28-year-old man did suffer minor injuries in the collision. The police arrested him at the scene for aggravated driving while intoxicated.
Situations like this are completely avoidable. Staying out of vehicles while intoxicated and obeying the rules of the road keeps people safe. If you’re struck by a negligent or drunk driver, you have rights and may be able to seek a claim against the driver.
