Crashes can be serious enough to result in deaths. When that happens, someone should be held accountable for their actions. Fortunately, most people do stay at the scene of accidents when others are hurt or fatally wounded.
Take, for example, a case from Milwaukee. In a two-vehicle crash, several people were hurt and one woman was killed. The news from Dec. 29 reports that the female passenger of a 25-year-old man’s vehicle was killed. The 25-year-old man is allegedly the person responsible for causing the crash with an oncoming Jeep. He is believed to have crossed over the centerline, resulting in a head-on collision.
The driver of the Jeep, along with three passengers, was also hurt in the collision. They included three males, 21, 24 and 25, and a female, 21. Fortunately, they were all expected to survive despite their injuries.
In crashes like this, any driver who is responsible for hurting or killing others should be held accountable for their actions. It is important for everyone to seek medical care right away and for victims to receive the help they need.
Once those who can be stabilized are, it’s a good idea to get in touch with your attorney, who can help you file a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance. Using evidence from the scene, the police report and the start of your hospital treatment plan, it’s possible to begin the insurance claims process. With quick thinking, you will be able to focus on your recovery and begin the claims process, so that you can get the compensation you need.
