It’s the last thing you think about when you start your day, but it can happen in an instant. When we saw this story about a recent hit-and-run car accident, we couldn’t help but think about how so many people were injured because of someone else’s reckless behavior.
This three-car crash in the College Area injured five people, with three injuries that were traumatic. One of the vehicles was chasing the other after they had been involved in a minor accident nearby. Because one driver didn’t stop, the other chased them down and ended up injuring people who had nothing to do with the original accident.

Different Types of Accidents
Any type of vehicle accident you are involved in can be a scary situation. We want to cover some of the basic types that we offer assistance for.
- Car or Truck Accident: An automotive crash involving two personal vehicles.
- Commercial Vehicle Accident: An automotive crash involving a personal vehicle and a commercial vehicle. This can include large commercial trucks (eighteen-wheeler, cement truck, etc) or another type of company vehicle.
- Pedestrian Accidents: An automotive crash that involves a vehicle striking a pedestrian.
- Ridesharing Accidents: Pertaining to crashes involving ridesharing services like Uber or Lyft, whether you are a passenger, in another vehicle, or a pedestrian that is struck.
Every type of vehicle accident has the potential to cause injuries and we recognize that this can alter your life. If you have to spend time in the hospital and go through rehabilitation, or are disabled, you may suffer financially due to lost income.
If a driver’s negligence caused your accident, then you may have many questions about compensation beyond what insurance companies are willing to pay. If an impaired or distracted driver was at fault, you may have a case that can be taken to court. Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to deal with, but if you were not the cause of an accident, you deserve to be treated fairly and compensated appropriately. Your bills won’t stop coming if you are injured and your family still needs to be taken care of.
