Head-on motor vehicle accidents often lead to fatalities

When drivers in Uniontown and throughout Fayette County are on the road, the last thing they are expecting is to be in a crash. Although it is always a possibility, there is a belief that simply paying attention to the road, adhering to the rules and being as safe as possible will prevent motor vehicle accidents and their aftermath. Unfortunately, this is not the case. One of the worst kinds of motor vehicle accidents is a head-on collision. For those who have been injured or lost a loved one in one of these accidents, it is crucial to understand how to pursue compensation through a legal filing.

A two-vehicle accident claimed the life of a 68-year-old man. The accident occurred shortly after 12 p.m. when a Ford truck with a car trailer attachment heading east went over the center line into the westbound lane and into the path of the deceased man's vehicle. When emergency personnel arrived, they declared the man dead. The driver of the truck was a 50-year-old man. Charges have not been filed. The investigation is ongoing.

There are many issues that a family that has lost a loved one must navigate. Medical expenses, lost wages, lost companionship and more will arise. The financial issues are difficult enough to deal with, but there will also be emotional concerns. After fatal motor vehicle accidents, an insurance company might try to negotiate a settlement to preclude an extended legal case. This is often at a fraction of what the family left behind has lost. However, they might accept it not realizing the extent of what has occurred and because they are still grieving. Having legal assistance is critical to ensure the family is compensated sufficiently.

A man who was driving west was suddenly in a crash as a truck crossed the center line and hit his vehicle head-on. He died. As the investigation continues, it is imperative that his family is protected by a law firm experienced in motor vehicle accidents. Those who are involved in a crash and have injuries or lost a loved one should also think about their circumstances and have legal assistance for a lawsuit.
