Most people in the Cincinnati area are good drivers. They understand the importance of safe driving and engage in this behavior every time they are behind the wheel. But, not everyone makes good driving decisions. When a person does not drive safely and drives while texting or after they have been drinking, or any other dangerous activity, they may cause a serious car accident.
One person is dead following a three car crash in Highland County. The crash happened on State Route 73 in Washington Township when a pickup truck traveling northbound crossed the center line and hit a northbound car. Another car that was traveling northbound veered to the shoulder when it struck a culvert and went airborne. The driver of that car was pronounced dead at the scene. One other victim was taken to a hospital for their injuries.
No one expects their loved one will be killed in a serious car accident. When these events occur, it can be devastating for a family. If a family believes the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can review the situation surrounding the accident and help determine what happened. They can visit the accident scene and interview witnesses and review police reports. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, funeral expenses, lost wages and other damages.
An unexpected car accident can affect a family forever. A victim’s family has the legal right to hold a negligent driver accountable for their mistake. Although nothing can bring back the loss of a loved one, compensation can help a family move on with their life.
