Nashville music scene shaken by car accidents

Nashville's music community was shaken recently by the news that drummer Gregg Lohman, a music instructor at Tennessee State University and a member of country star Kellie Pickler's band, was seriously injured in an auto accident. Lohman sustained head and neck injuries in a four-vehicle car accident in the southbound lanes of Interstate 65, near Glendale, Kentucky. The accident happened about 15 minutes after a fiery crash killed six people in the northbound lanes at the same spot.

Pickler took to social media to praise Lohman as not just a sideman but family, and asked fans to keep him in their thoughts. The happened less than a week after the news that bassist Chuck Goff, a member of country star Toby Keith's band, was killed in a car accident.

Those injured in car accidents often face long, painful recoveries and sometimes permanent disability with heavy medical expenses. The families of those killed are often left without the earning power of their loved one, among other more intangible losses.

When a car accident is caused by another person's negligence, the injured or their families may recover compensation for their damages. A driver acts negligently when he or she fails to act with the same level of care that a reasonable person would do under the circumstances and their lack of care results in another person being injured. A person who is driving drunk or otherwise breaking traffic laws is not acting with reasonable care.

In multivehicle accidents, the question of negligence becomes more complicated. Sometimes a driver must swerve to get out of the way of another car and, by swerving, causes an accident that injures someone. In such cases, the legal cause of the injuries may be divided among different parties. These cases take careful, patient investigation.
