Getting injured in an accident is an unpleasant situation to be in. You could be missing work, in pain, and have little control of the situation. In your case, your car accident could lead to the right to seek compensation since someone else’s negligence was at fault. In a recent case near you in Alabama, a family was involved in a three-car accident and suffered injuries.

The crash took place when the family was on its way to Florida for vacation. The family’s vehicle was passing through a yellow flashing intersection heading south. As they attempted to pass, a vehicle coming from the east struck the driver’s side of the family’s car. That car, which was being driven by a 39-year-old woman, had not stopped at the stop sign on the east side of the intersection. The family’s vehicle also struck a second vehicle after being hit.

The three-car accident resulted in multiple injuries. The driver of the family vehicle, a 39-year-old man, suffered from a concussion and a fracture to his arm. He also had a number of lacerations that needed treatment. His three children were also injured. Two of them needed stitches, and the other had a mild concussion, reports claimed. They have all been released from the hospital despite their injuries.

The woman who struck the family’s vehicle, a 39-year-old from Opp, had two passengers in her vehicle. One had to be taken to UAB Hospital in Birmingham for life-threatening injuries. The other was taken to a medical center in Dothan for treatment. The 39-year-old woman was also injured and needed treatment.

The police have not reported on whether or not the woman will be charged for this accident. If yours is like this one, you have a right to seek a civil lawsuit even if charges aren’t placed.
