Most Cary area residents are good drivers. They understand it is important to stay alert for any traffic hazard they encounter. Unfortunately, there are still inattentive and bad drivers out there. Accidents can happen to anyone and these can cause serious injuries.
A recent accident in Zebulon caused a major mess on the 64/264 freeway. A car cut off a semi-truck, causing a serious accident. The tractor-trailer was carrying a load of cabbage, which spread across the highway. It also hit an overhead bridge, guard rail and cables, forcing the truck onto its side. Three other vehicles were also damaged. The truck driver was taken to a local hospital for treatment of his extensive injuries. The driver of the car that cut off the tractor-trailer has been charged with failure to yield.
No one ever thinks they will be in an accident. An accident occurs when a person is least expecting it. No matter how good a driver is, they will still encounter other drivers on the road. An accident can cause unexpected medical expenses and other financial hardships, not to mention the emotional trauma that can occur. A victim who was involved in an accident through no fault of their own may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can visit the accident scene and interview witnesses, review the accident report, and help determine what happened to cause the accident. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
An unexpected truck accident can seriously affect a family. These are emotionally and financially tragic events and the victim may wonder what will happen next. An attorney can help a family recover and hold the negligent party responsible for their mistakes.
