Speeding, red-light-running driver causes wreck, injures 4

| Jan 20, 2015 | Car Accidents

A wreck in Phoenix, Arizona involved six vehicles and left at least four people with injuries serious enough that they required hospitalization. The car accident occurred at an intersection after a car that was speeding plowed through a red light and slammed into the side of an SUV. The cars eventually hit a pole, and then four other vehicles ended up being involved in the wreck — though it is unclear at this moment how those vehicles got involved in the crash.

No one is sure at this moment what types of charges the speeding driver will face, though it seems likely he or she will be hit with numerous offenses for unsafe driving. Criminal charges could be applied if the driver was intoxicated on drugs or alcohol.

What is clear is that numerous people have had their lives changed as a result of this accident, and they may or may not be considering legal action in order to help them get their lives back on track.

A personal injury lawsuit can go a long way in helping car accident victims recover from such a wreck. The potential compensation could help you pay for medical bills, while also giving you some mental relief about whether or not the responsible party will be held liable for his or her negligent driving.

There are no guarantees when you file a personal injury lawsuit, but the more evidence you have and the better prepared that you are for the lawsuit, the greater the chance is that you will achieve a successful outcome.
