Despite taking all necessary safety precautions when driving, motorists in Texas and elsewhere can still become involved in car accidents due to the negligence or carelessness of other drivers on the road. When this happens, those adversely affected can pursue civil claims against the driver believed to have been at fault in an attempt at recovering damages. At least two people in Austin are likely considering their options after suffering serious injuries in a multi-vehicle accident recently.
Details regarding accident
Although reports offer scant details concerning the crash, it was reported the accident occurred around 6:13 p.m. on Friday, March 4. The crash happened on a service road for 1-35 close to West Palmer Lane in the 13000 block. Responders found several vehicles were involved in the crash, but they did not specify how many.
They did report that one of the vehicles had rolled over during the crash. The driver was apparently trapped in the vehicle and had to be extricated. That person was then rushed to a local medical center with potentially serious injuries. Another person was also taken to the hospital for injuries not considered life-threatening, but the report did not specify which car that individual had been in.
Many questions still unanswered
The report did not mention any other injuries, nor did it give a reason as to how the accident occurred or who may have been at fault. Regardless, those adversely affected still retain the right to pursue personal injury claims against the driver considered at fault once he or she is identified. To increase their chances of obtaining a successful outcome, those seeking renumeration will want to work with an experienced personal injury attorney in Texas for assistance.
