High speed may be a factor in fatal car accident

Though it is one of the most common behaviors that people across the country engage in on a daily basis, driving is also incredibly dangerous. While many people go out and about and spend their lives without ever becoming involved in a car accident, thousands of others become injured or lose their lives in crashes on a daily basis. Their lives have become irrevocably altered by the actions of a single, often irresponsible, driver.

The dangers associated with driving were illustrated once again when a man was killed on California roadways recently. According to the California Highway Patrol, the fatal accident took place in the early afternoon, when a vehicle being driven by a 21-year-old struck a utility truck stopped on the side of the freeway to repair a flat tire. According to reports, the 21-year-old was driving southbound at 80-90 miles an hour when the collision took place. He struck the disabled truck after swerving. The accident victim died at the scene of the crash due to injuries sustained in the crash.

There are certain rules of the road that must be followed in order to keep the roadways safe for all those traveling on it. When those rules are neglected and someone dies or becomes injured as a result, it might be possible to hold the negligent driver responsible for his or her actions.

Though it may seem like it, the purpose of a personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death one is not to quantify the loss one has endured-instead it serves to lessen the financial burden associated with the crash. Medical expenses, funeral costs and lost wages add up over time through no fault of the accident victim and an experienced attorney can help them figure out their legal options after a crash.
