A traffic accident can financially, emotionally and physically impact the well-being of an individual and his or her family. In addition to injuries suffered, car accidents can leave a victim with medical bills, lost wages from missed work and other types of emotional and mental trauma. The aftermath of a serious accident is overwhelming, but a Texas victim does not have to face it alone.
A car accident occurred recently in Nolan County. It occurred in on a Wednesday in December, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety. The accident involved two vehicles and injured five individuals, with two of them suffering serious injuries.
A 55-year-old Colorado Springs man was driving a vehicle with three other passengers in it southbound on a state highway when a vehicle driven by a 34-year-old Lubbock man crashed into the vehicle head on. The second driver had attempted to pass a vehicle in a no-passing zone right before the crash took place, DPS said. The driver of this vehicle was airlifted to a neighboring medical center, while the driver of the first vehicle and two of his passengers were treated for their injuries at a local medical facility. The third passenger was airlifted to the same neighboring medical center.
After serious car accidents, it is typical for victims to have pressing questions about what occurred and what happens next. An experienced Texas personal injury attorney can answer these questions while helping a client to understand the available options. If a personal injury claim is pursued, the lawyer will focus on preparing the strongest case possible while helping the client navigate the often challenging civil justice system.
