Driver injures five pedestrians in car accident

Those walking around on Cary area streets don't usually worry about whether they will be hit by a car. Many people enjoy walking to and from their destinations and spending time with their friends and loved ones. Unfortunately, five people were recently injured when a car hit them.

A driver in Roanoke Rapids was accelerating while leaving a McDonald's restaurant when she lost control of her vehicle. The driver hit five people nearby and all suffered injuries and were taken to local hospitals. The driver who hit them was arrested and charged with careless and reckless driving, no operator's license, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The accident is still under investigation and additional charges may still be filed.

No one expects their loved one will be involved in a serious accident. But, these accidents can happen at any time and under any circumstances. A family may rely on the income of the person who has been injured. Regardless, when a loved one is injured through no fault of their own, a family may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury.

An attorney can review the circumstances surrounding the accident, including the police report, witness accounts, and medical records. An attorney can help the family understand what caused the accident and can hold the negligent party responsible for their mistake. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, lost wages, future medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages.

A car accident can happen at any time, turning a family upside down in both financial and emotional matters. Holding a negligent party responsible is important to make sure they don't harm anyone else.
