Cary drivers don’t ever expect they will be in a car accident. A car accident occurs in the blink of an eye and will happen to almost every driver during their driving career. Most car accidents are minor fender-benders, but serious accidents do occur.
A family was recently injured when their minivan was hit by a speeding sports car on Raleigh Road Parkway. The minivan was struck so hard by the sports car that it caused it to overturn several times, injuring all of the passengers and trapping them inside of the van. Two of the people in the minivan were taken to Vidant Medical Center and the third was taken to Wilson Medical Center. Investigators say the driver of the sports car was driving so fast that it is considered reckless and careless. He is facing several criminal charges that include felony assault with a deadly weapon causing serious injury, careless and reckless driving and speeding. He was arrested and put in jail.
No family should ever have to go through the stressful and emotional time of having a loved one involved in a car accident. But, unfortunately, these serious accidents happen every day across North Carolina and the United States. Bad drivers injure and kill thousands each year, forcing families to make tough decisions. If a family believes their loved one was hurt or killed by a negligent driver, they may want to speak with a legal professional skilled in personal injury. An attorney can help the family find out what happened to cause the serious accident. They can visit the accident scene, interview witnesses and review police reports. They can hold the negligent party responsible for their mistakes. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, future medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.
A serious car accident can deeply affect a family, both emotionally and financially. Families have the legal right to hold a bad driver accountable for their mistakes.
