A tragic car accident claimed two lives, according to 9 News. A man driving an SUV, along with an infant sitting in the seat behind him, were killed after their SUV was struck by a truck in the intersection at I-225 and East 17th Place. The crash caused the SUV to spin, and hit a utility pole. A woman who was sitting in the back seat next to the child was seriously injured as well, but is expected to live. The truck that hit the SUV was driven by a minor, and there was another minor passenger in the truck. Both say that they had a green light at the intersection. There do not appear to be any other witnesses to the crash.

Each year, over a million people are injured in motor vehicle accidents across the United States. Of these, over 30,000 people are killed. When you have been hurt or lost someone in a car accident, it can be incredibly difficult to know what to do next. You may be entitled to recover financial compensation for medical bills and property damage that results from the accident. It is important to understand that if you have been seriously injured, and will require ongoing medical care that will continue into the future, you may be entitled to collect for those future medical bills as well as bills that you have already incurred.
Contact a dedicated personal injury attorney immediately to discuss your options if you have been injured in a car crash. Even if you know that you are entitled to compensation, knowing how to recover is complicated. An experienced car accident attorney can help you take care of the legal side while you care for the physical and emotional well-being of your family. Many personal injury lawyers work on a contingent fee basis, meaning that you pay a fee only if your lawyer successfully recovers compensation for you.
