We all want to believe it won’t happen to us, but too often it does happen. This week a head on collision in Jefferson County left one man dead and another man battered and bruised. WISH, channel 8, reports that the fatal wreck occurred on Sunday, February 26 later in the afternoon. Hearing about another tragedy on our roads reminds us of the importance of not only minding our own traffic and driving skills, but also the importance of being able to react quickly to the driving habits and behaviors of others; especially during key times of the day, including: dusk, dawn, and anytime the roadways are busy.
According to initial reports, the vehicle of the deceased driver drifted into the other lane of traffic striking an oncoming vehicle at a fair rate of speed. These sorts of truck accidents in Indiana are a worst case scenario, yet we must remember that they do happen and when they do; all that is left to do is react to the events that have unfolded. As much as we would like, we cannot change what has already happened.
This Jefferson County truck accident will be investigated and cause will most likely be assigned, as a result both families and the surviving driver will be dealing with insurance companies, authorities, and medical professionals for quite some time. This is why it is so important to have someone on your side, someone who will fight for you and your rights; because once cause is assigned one insurance carrier will be looking to resolve liability in a quick manner that is most beneficial for them.
One of the vehicles involved in the head on collision was a commercial flat bed truck registered in another state; can that affect the legal status of the case? It may indeed, and that is another reason why if you are involved in a car or truck collision of any sort in Indiana you should seek qualified legal representation in a timely manner. Think of it this way; you wouldn’t wait days or weeks to seek medical attention, why would you wait days or weeks to seek legal representation.
