Three women found themselves in a helicopter being flown to the hospital after a recent early morning car accident. The car accident happened along Interstate 75 in Monroe County. According to Tennessee troopers, alcohol likely played a role in the incident.
Allegedly, the accident happened when a speeding 28-year-old woman slammed into the back of another car, causing their car to flip into a median. The 28-year-old and her passenger, a 33-year-old woman, were ejected from their car. Police say that neither of them were wearing seat belts.
The rear-ended car, which contained a 66-year-old driver, also overturned following the impact. The driver of this vehicle needed to be extricated by emergency personnel. Life Star aircraft took all three of the accident victims to the hospital. As of Feb. 9, one woman was reported to be in serious condition and another woman was reported to be in fair condition. No updates had been given regarding the medical status of the woman who apparently caused the collision.
It is hoped that all the victims of this accident survive to live rich and full lives; however, considering the severity of their injuries, it is possible that the after-effects of this Tennessee car accident may never completely go away. As such, some of the victims may be entitled to receive financial restitution, should they wish to pursue personal injury claims relating to the event. While the decision to file a personal injury claim is always a personal one, for some California accident victims, it is also a financial one. Indeed, the hospital bills related to this incident will be costly and -- depending on the unique facts of the case -- the person to blame for this accident may be financially liable to pay for them and other documented financial losses.
