Single vehicle collisions can leave behind as much damage as crashes involving several vehicles. While the victims may think there is nothing they can do in the midst of their injuries and pain and suffering, that is not the case. Tennessee lawyers in the field of car accidents and personal injury can provide guidance to those involved in a single-vehicle car accident. With an attorney's assistance, the victim may choose to file claims against the party allegedly responsible.
One such crash occurred recently early one Sunday afternoon along a state road. A motor vehicle was purportedly speeding, and the the driver was apparently unable to successfully navigate a curve. The vehicle ran off of the roadway and slammed into a tree.
As a result of the accident, the two passengers, a 19 and 20-year-old, suffered personal injury and had to be transported to a nearby medical center. The 27-year-old driver was also injured and was moved to the medical center for treatment of his injuries. Authorities are continuing to investigate the possible causes and factors that played a part in the crash.
While officials have not yet determined the driver's role in causing the crash, the victims have the right to file civil claims for the personal injuries that they suffered. If successfully litigated, these claims may result in some financial compensation for the medical expenses that they have incurred as a result of this Tennessee car accident. Victims who have been involved in any motor vehicle collision can seek the assistance of a legal professionals in this field.
