Sadly this week in Morgan County, Indiana, a three car accident left one man dead. Again and again we are reminded of how precious life is and how quickly it can be drastically changed or even ended prematurely. According to Indiana State Police and the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department, one element of the accident involved a car driving in the wrong direction (moving south in the northbound lane). The resulting collision caused enough devastation to leave a vehicle barely recognizable.
Due to the aftermath of the accident, the Indiana State Police requested the public find alternate routes of travel. This is due, in part, to the wide debris field at the scene, and the need to recreate the events surrounding the wreck. Recreating the accident is driven by the need to understand the cause of death and what lead to the moment of impact. Someone or something is at fault in this deadly car accident and that has to be determined. The insurance companies will also be looking to see if someone or something was a significant contributing factor.
Indiana law stipulates that claims against individuals and insurance companies can access appropriate compensation for injuries and losses including lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and in the case of death, lifetime losses. Unfortunately, we have seen families and individuals settle cases before they understood how significant their ‘total’ losses were.
