Possible wrongful death results from Tennessee car accident

Victims of motor vehicle collisions resulting in personal injury or death may have the right to take action for themselves or on behalf of a deceased loved one. A recent car accident in Tennessee has left several injured and one dead. Those affected by this crash may seek the guidance of a personal injury and wrongful death lawyer to assist them with the claims process.

The driver of a motor vehicle carrying five occupants was attempting to make a left turn onto a roadway when the accident occurred. A northbound car operated by a 77-year-old woman collided with the vehicle. Three passengers in the turning vehicle, including two children ages 3 and 7, were injured and were transported to a nearby medical center for treatment.

The driver and 71-year-old passenger in the northbound vehicle suffered injuries in the crash. The passenger was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, but later succumbed to her injuries. The driver was transported to Southern Hills Medical Center and is expected to recover. It is not yet clear which driver was entitled to the right-of-way.

Although the driver responsible for this car accident has not yet been determined by officials, the family members of the victim who lost her life have the right to file a civil claim for wrongful death on her behalf. If successfully litigated, these claims may result in financial compensation for the end-of-life expenses and other monetary damages. Furthermore, the victims who suffered injury in the accident may also have the right to file claims for their personal injury. Attorneys in Tennessee can assist victims and their families as they work through this process.
