Harold and his family were heading out to get a bite to eat at their favorite family restaurant. As they were waiting at a stop light, Harold noticed a moment too late that a big rig was coming up on his backside at an alarming velocity. Before Harold could accelerate his sedan out of harm’s way, the big rig flew past, clipping the back side and sending the car spinning into the other side of the road. The jolt of the impact woke the big rig driver up. While everyone survived the collision, the damage to the vehicle was total and everyone in the vehicle, including the children, sustained head and neck injuries, and all were taken to the hospital.
Accidents like these are frightening, occur with alarming frequency, and sometimes result in much more dire consequences. Whether it is a case of driver fatigue, as detailed above, or other reasons, such as overloading or poor maintenance, the victims of these incidents are entitled to compensation for all of the damages incurred.
