When many people think of serious car accidents, they may immediately picture incidents that involve multiple vehicles or maybe big rigs. Of course, a crash that involves only a single vehicle can also have severe outcomes, including injuries to those involved. Depending on the details of such an incident, legal claims could result.
It was recently reported that an accident in Mississippi involved one vehicle and resulted in injuries for two people. Apparently, the vehicle was traveling east when the driver failed to remain on the roadway. This event caused the vehicle to overturn multiple times before colliding with a gate for an apartment complex. The report indicated that authorities responded to the incident at approximately 3:15 a.m.
One individual in the vehicle was ejected during the crash, and the passenger had to be extricated from the vehicle by emergency personnel. Both individuals were reported as being males, but their ages were not given in the report. They were both taken to a medical center in order to be treated for their undisclosed injuries. The investigation into the incident was ongoing at the time of the report, and details were not available regarding the individuals’ conditions.
This crash could cause a number of difficulties for the injured parties as they work to recover from their injuries. If applicable, the injured passenger may have reason to file a personal injury claim against the driver considered at fault of the incident. A successful legal claim could allow him to obtain compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages permitted under Mississippi law.
