Accident sends two to the hospital

When on the road, it is the responsibility of all drivers to adhere to traffic rules. When a driver fails to do so, he or she puts the lives of everyone around in danger.

The repercussions of injuries or fatalities sustained in an auto accident do not end there though, as family members and loved ones also suffer when their loved ones are involved in a crash. If the injured party is the breadwinner, then the whole family's financial wellbeing is threatened because someone was not paying attention to the road.

An accident in Washington State highlights the dangers of negligent behavior on the road, as a crash landed two in the hospital recently. According to police officials, a 37-year-old woman hit a vehicle being driven by a 53-year-old man. The 53-year-old man had stopped to turn left into a private business when his vehicle was struck from behind. The man was injured, as well as a teen passenger in the striking vehicle's car. According to police, the vehicle in the back was following too closely and is facing negligent driving charges and charges of driving without insurance.

While it is possible to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against someone who has caused a car accident, it can become more complicated when the negligent driver does not have insurance. Medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering can add up and, without insurance, the accident victim might not be able to receive the compensation he or she deserves.

However, this does not mean that accident victims have no legal recourse. Complicated does not mean impossible. It might be possible to consult an experienced attorney for guidance on how to exercise one's legal rights and get the compensation they deserve.
