The cause of a single vehicle crash can be many, and can put the driver on the hook for liability for any injuries their passengers received. Drivers are responsible for the safety of their passengers, and that includes making them wear their seat belts at all times.
A single-vehicle wreck in northeast Forsyth County is a case in point. A Hyundai Elantra driving just north of Dawsonville Highway went off the road and struck a tree head-on. The driver was wearing his seatbelt but his two passengers were not. The front passenger was flung forward and got trapped underneath the passenger console. She’s now in critical condition. The rear passenger actually got flung through the windshield. Surprisingly, her injuries were less severe. The driver also received injuries.
Perhaps the driver’s insurance will cover the costs. Perhaps not. What we do know is that someone is going to have to pay for the costs of all that medical care. A skilled personal injury attorney can help you get the cash you need to pay for a new vehicle or pay your medical bills from whomever is responsible for your accident.
