Two individuals have suffered injuries in an wreck. The single-car accident took place along Texas 71 on a recent Friday. These types of crashes can easily happen due to drive negligence, which is grounds for litigation.
Events leading up to the collision
The recent crash took place at about 11:13 a.m. According to authorities, two people were riding in a car when it suddenly rolled over. One of them ended up being pinned in the car as a result of the crash.
After the pinned individual was rescued from the wreckage, both parties were transported to a medical center with serious injuries. Police continued to investigate the cause of the crash. However, authorities reported that other accidents that were reported that day stemmed from icy street conditions. Police stressed the importance of slowing down and being patient with transportation crews as they worked on deicing roads.
Where to turn for help and support as a victim
The passenger in the car that flipped over in the motor vehicle accident has the option of filing a personal injury claim against the driver, seeking damages. The passenger must establish liability, based upon a showing of negligence — such as driving too quickly for road conditions. Only then will a judge determine the passenger’s claim for damages. If the passenger is successful, the passenger may receive a damage award to cover medical bills as well as the loss of wages if his or her injuries prevented him or her from returning to work for an extended period of time.
