In Fulton County, drivers must always pay full attention to the road and potential dangers to avoid an auto accident. However, no matter what a driver does, there are times that car accidents cannot be prevented. They could be due to the carelessness of another driver, a driver who was drinking before getting behind the wheel or simply because of circumstance. What must be understood, though, is that injuries and deaths can result from an auto accident causing long-term problems to the individuals and families.
A mid-morning three-car crash sent two people to the hospital. According to the accident investigation, a 2008 Ford Fusion that was driven by a 16-year-old male sideswiped a Lexus RX-300 being driven by a 63-year-old woman. The Fusion then crashed head-on with a 2003 Chevy PT Cruised being driven by a 68-year-old man. The Fusion spun and stopped in the center of the road. The 16-year-old and the 68-year-old were taken to the hospital with injuries. The 63-year-old was not hurt.
With any kind of auto accident, there is a chance that there will be severe injuries and fatalities. Those who have been hurt or lost a loved one will face enormous strains when they try to recover and move on with their lives. Medical expenses for injuries can be massive. People might not be able to return to work immediately, if at all. There could be the need for long-term care. If there was a death, the person who died could have been an integral part of a household as a caretaker of children or main breadwinner. The insurance companies will usually try to settle these cases as quickly as possible to keep costs under control. The initial offer they make is often not enough to cover all the expenses from an accident.
In this case, two people suffered injuries in a three-vehicle crash. The accident investigation is ongoing to determine what happened. With the injuries that were suffered, those who were hurt would be well-advised to discuss their cases with an attorney to know how best to proceed.
