A Terre Haute Car Accident that occurred yesterday was responsible for seriously injuring two motorists. Reports indicate the crash happened at approximately 8:00 p.m. at the intersection of U.S. 41 and Indiana 246 in Vigo County.
According to the Terre Haute Tribune-Star, a four-door sedan was traveling southbound along U.S. 41 in the passing lane when a Jeep carrying two passengers suddenly struck them from behind. The impact of the collision caused the Jeep to leave the roadway and roll several times, leaving both passengers seriously injured.
Paramedics were called to the scene and transported both injured men to a local hospital to receive further treatment.
The incident leaves many wondering if a passenger in a vehicle can hold the driver responsible for their injuries if the an accident is that driver’s fault.
The Terre Haute Personal Injury Lawyers with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin explain that the answer is yes, as long as negligence on the driver’s part can be proven. The firm explains that proving such negligence can be an extremely complex process though. That is why the firm urges anyone who has been injured in an auto accident that occurred at no fault of their own to discuss their legal rights with a qualified attorney as soon as possible.
