According to a report in KIII-TV, a Corpus Christi car accident is allegedly the fault of a driver who ran a red light.
According to the report, the driver was in a teal colored sedan when they ran a red light and slammed into a pickup truck. After the driver hit that pickup truck, the force of the collision caused the truck to crash into a Jeep.
The driver accused of causing the accident turned out to have no insurance and did not have a driver’s license. The reporting states that the driver is being charged for both of those factors, as well as being charged for failing to yield the right-of-way. Police in the report said that the driver may be facing additional charges.
Provided that everybody escapes from a car accident unscathed, one of the worst things a driver can face is getting hit by a driver who doesn’t have insurance. Basic insurance policies do carry coverage for uninsured drivers, but it may not be enough to cover all of the damage that the uninsured driver causes. This leaves drivers in a situation where they may end up having to pick up the bill for a very expensive accident, may be left without a vehicle for some time and where they may face even more hardships because of a negligent driver.
One option such drivers have is to contact a Dallas auto wreck lawyer. These attorney specialize in going after drivers who cause accidents through their negligence, and that means that they may be able to help you if you were hit by an uninsured driver. Driving without insurance is a crime in and of itself, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t go after the driver in civil court.
Lawsuits over car accidents frequently involve compensation for pain and suffering, mental anguish, destroyed property, medical bills and many other expenses. These expenses are things that many drivers who are involved in car accidents face. Because of that, talking to an attorney about the matter may enable you to get compensation that could help you to recover from the accident financially.
If you were unfortunate enough to have lost someone in the accident, you also may be able to sue for wrongful death. This is a type of lawsuit pursued by the survivors of someone who was killed because of someone else’s negligence and these lawsuits sometimes pay out enough in compensation to help the family survive financially.
