When a car and a truck collide, the likelihood of significant property damage and serious personal injuries is substantial. An Indiana roadway was the scene of a car accident involving a semi-truck on Sept. 12. Car accidents of this nature can result in a personal injury lawsuit if injuries are suffered by innocent victims.
The Saturday afternoon crash occurred on Interstate 65 in Clinton County. A car was southbound in the right lane. A semi-truck rear-ended the car.
The car driver suffered head injuries, though further details were not reported. Two other people in the car also had unspecified pain that required medical intervention. All three were transported to an area hospital for treatment. The driver of the truck did not suffer injuries. The Interstate was closed for nearly an hour as the wreckage was removed from the scene of the accident.
In Indiana, car accidents resulting in head injuries can mean massive medical bills and rehabilitative services. Financial challenges may also exist as a head injury may mean a victim is unable to work; some crash victims may never be able to return to the type of work they did before the accident. A victim may be able to pursue a claim for monetary damages in a civil court by means of a personal injury lawsuit. If negligence is established in court by appropriate proof, a monetary judgment may be awarded to help the victim pay for financial obligations resulting from the car accident. Accident victims may benefit by seeking a consultation with an experienced personal injury attorney in order to arrange a case review in preparation for pursuing a claim for damages.
