Personal Injury and Death Results from Semi-Truck Crash
Feb. 14, 2019
Drivers need to be cautious when on the road in Hermitage and the surrounding areas. The danger of an auto accident resulting in personal injury and death is a constant. This is especially true with large trucks on the road and in bad weather. This combination can lead to a collision. For those who have been impacted by these types of accidents, it is important to remember that there can be financial and personal ramifications as a result.
A crash between a car and two tractor-trailers led to the death of two teens. Three other people were also injured in the crash. The accident happened in the evening at about 7 p.m. The road conditions were said to be treacherous. The car had four teen girls inside. Two — a 16-year-old and a 15-year-old — died in the accident. Two others were taken to the hospital for treatment and then taken to a trauma center. They were said to be in critical condition. A 37-year-old male driver of one of the semis was hospitalized. The other driver, a 53-year-old man, was uninjured. The investigation is continuing.
Car accidents with injuries and fatalities are difficult for the injured and the family of those who died to get beyond. With the personal impact, the financial costs and other factors, these incidents are life-changing. Medical expenses, lost time on the job for those who work, and a radically changed future are all common with motor vehicle crashes.
While it is difficult to think about, sometimes a legal filing is a possible strategy to maximize compensation for all that was lost. Insurers will try to offer a settlement that is rarely sufficient. Having legal assistance can help those who want to learn more about filing a personal injury claim.
