Two individuals have sadly been injured in an unfortunate motor vehicle crash. The accident took place along Clovis Highway on a recent Thursday. Sometimes, these types of accidents occur as a result of a driver’s carelessness, which is grounds for litigation.
How the car accident occurred
The recent single-car crash took place at about 8:25 p.m. According to police, the accident happened when a car carrying two individuals suddenly rolled over. When they reached the accident scene, they discovered that the 32-year-old female passenger had reportedly been thrown from the car. She suffered serious injuries in the crash.
Police said they also found a 23-year-old man who was driving the car at the time of the crash. He suffered moderate injuries in the crash. Both the man and the woman were taken to a hospital via ambulance for the treatment of their injuries. Authorities continued to investigate the cause of the accident.
How an attorney can help following the crash
The woman who was injured in the car accident may choose to file a personal injury claim against the man who was driving the car, seeking the reimbursement of damages. If she can establish liability, based upon a showing of negligence, in court, a judge will adjudicate her claim for damages. She may end up receiving a damage award to cover her hospital bills and even the loss of wages, if her serious injuries prevented her from being able to work for a time following the car wreck.
