If you stop to think about it, driving vehicles down a road is actually pretty scary. Thousands of pounds of plastic and metal hurtling about at speeds faster than any human can run sound like a recipe for an accident. Traffic rules help control the chaos, but accidents still happen.
Even highly trained drivers can be the cause of an accident. 11alive reported on an accident that happened on Northside Drive and Moores Mill Road. The report says that a police cruiser rear-ended an Uber driver waiting at the intersection. The officer and two passengers in the Uber vehicle were injured and taken to Grady Hospital.
The cause of the accident and the conditions of the injured were not released by the police department pending the investigation. However, all are expected to survive.
It doesn’t matter who runs into you. If you are hurt in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you are eligible for compensation under the law. Sometimes you get lucky and someone has full coverage and you get a good deal. But more often than not, the settlements you get won’t cover the full cost of injuries, vehicle repair, lost wages, and other financial drains. Furthermore, some injuries don’t become apparent until weeks after an accident.
