One dead, one injured in Tennessee car accident


There are a variety of environmental factors that can play a part in car accidents. But whether it is snow, rain, ice or a sun glare, drivers are still expected to exercise the amount of care necessary to avoid injuring another person on the road. In other words, the presence of an environmental factor does not always pardon a driver's negligent actions.

A Tennessee man was killed and another man injured as the result of a car accident in Tennessee. According to police, sun glare was a factor in the accident. A Tennessee man was temporarily blinded by a sun glare, which allegedly caused him to rear end a pickup truck driven by a 73-year-old man. The pickup truck wound up facing the opposite direction in another lane where it was struck by another vehicle whose driver was also apparently blinded by the sun glare. The 73-year-old truck driver was found dead at the scene. The driver of the third vehicle sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Unfortunately, injuries and even fatalities are not uncommon in car accidents. The pain and suffering that these injuries and fatalities cause victims and their loved ones can be long lasting and result in a myriad of financial complications. In a car accident, almost everything has a cost attached to it. Whether the victim required transportation via a medical helicopter to a hospital, or simply needed to be treated for minor injuries like whiplash, the costs resulting from car accidents can add up rather quickly.

In some cases, it is possible to fight for compensation to help victims cover these many costs. The pursuit of fair compensation is often aided by a strong and aggressive legal strategy that makes use of eyewitness accounts and investigative reports to prove the negligence of another driver.
