Three-car crash leaves four injured in Tennessee


Drivers are expected to drive carefully. Failing to do so can have devastating consequences. When the worst happens, the law of negligence offers a way for those hurt to receive financial compensation from the negligent driver.

The law of negligence may be relevant to a recent multi-vehicle accident in Tennessee that left four injured. According to reports, three vehicles were involved in the crash. One of the vehicles involved in the crash tipped over onto its side in a wooded area near the Tennessee roadway. Another vehicle appeared to be mangled in the middle of the two-lane road. One victim had to extricated from a vehicle.

The accident occurred after a van driven by a 34-year-old man struck another car. The van's driver had lost control of the vehicle. As a result of the initial collision, the van drove through a median and into the southbound lanes. It was then struck by another van on its passenger side. The other van was driven by a 57-year-old woman. Also in the van were a 61-year-old man and two teenage passengers.

The 34-year-old man in the first vehicle and the 61-year-old man in the third vehicle were flown via medical helicopter to a nearby Nashville hospital. Reports say they were in critical condition. The two teenage passengers in the third vehicle also suffered minor injuries.

Suffering injuries in car accidents can be traumatic for victims. In order to receive financial relief, victims may desire to pursue compensation. This is often done by filling a negligence lawsuit and proving that another party involved in a car accident acted in a way that violated certain standards of conduct.
