It can happen to anyone. You’re peacefully driving, only a few more miles to make it home, and something catches your eye or distracts you. Maybe you’re not paying attention to the speedometer and take a curve too fast.
Under most circumstances, we can easily slow down, but sometimes it ends in tragedy. Such was the case for a Gainesville resident. She was traveling and tried to make a long left. She rumbled on the side of the road before overcompensating and driving over the center line.
Then it was another overcorrection, another twist in the road, and the car plowed into a tree, rolling into a ditch, turning over. There were two children and two others in the vehicle with the driver. The adults were all taken to the hospital with injuries, but the two children who were also in the car died.
Police are investigating the cause of the overcorrections, examining whether there were issues going on with the vehicle, thinking about how the roads were that day, and more. It’s imperative that people understand the cause of the accident before insurance and other information is discussed.
Having a personal injury attorney like John Foy on your side while the investigation is going on is important. With all of the gathered information, they are able to get you the settlement that you deserve. If you get into an accident, call the Strong Arm.
