Whether a pedestrian is struck by a hit-and-run driver or a car is involved in a single-vehicle crash, every traffic accident is unique. After a motor vehicle crash, it is imperative for those involved to do everything in their power to restore a sense of normalcy, if possible. In Huntington, West Virginia, and around the country, drivers should try to be aware of the multitude of risks they face on the road every time they get in their vehicles.
A woman from Pennsylvania recently filed a lawsuit over a traffic accident that she was involved in during 2014. The driver, who says that she has experienced loss of enjoyment and pain and suffering, is asking for monetary compensation. In her complaint, the woman also claims that she incurred medical costs and suffered severe injuries as a result of the accident.
In 2014, the woman was driving on I-79 when her vehicle was struck by a tire which had allegedly fallen off of a large truck that was heading in the opposite direction. The woman says that the tire went across the median before impacting the SUV she was driving. In her suit, the woman accuses the operator of the tractor-trailer of driving the truck in a dangerous condition and failing to repair/inspect the truck.
Car accidents can have a wide-reaching impact on a victim’s life, and the lives of their loved ones also. Victims may lose their job, deal with unbearable pain or even pass away in a crash. Some people who are trying to recover from a traffic accident may want to talk about what happened with an attorney.
