Four sent to hospital after two-car crash in Tennessee


Negligence describes any situation that involves someone doing something wrong by mistake and that mistake resulting in someone else getting hurt. So if, for example, someone accidently rear-ends another vehicle, they may be found negligent and thus held liable for any damages resulting from the crash. Proving another driver's liability in a car accident can be tricky, but with a strong and aggressive legal strategy, it is possible.

Four people were taken to the hospital following a recent two-car crash in Tennessee. According to reports, in the early afternoon, a 51-year-old man driving a Ford pickup truck neglected to stop when his vehicle approached stalled traffic. Swerving to the left, he attempted to steer away from the stopped traffic. As a result, his vehicle crossed the center line and hit another vehicle head on. The other vehicle was driven by a 56-year-old man.

The 56-year-old man in the second vehicle was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for injuries resulting from the crash. An 86-year-old passenger in the same vehicle also suffered injuries and had to be taken to a medical facility. The 51-year-old driver of the first vehicle was also flown to a nearby hospital, as was a 50-year-old female who was riding passenger in his truck. The driver faces traffic and seat belt charges.

If drivers are suspected of violating traffic laws and causing car accidents, victims may wish to file negligence law suits and pursue compensation from the driver who is suspected to have caused the accident. A successful negligence lawsuit can help victims receive the financial relief they so often need following a traumatic car accident.
