Car accidents can happen in many different circumstances, some of which are unexpected and unusual. It is in the more unusual types of crashes that people can suffer injuries and fatalities largely because they were not expecting a crash. A unique type of collision that can lead to people being injured in a car accident is when a vehicle runs into a building or an establishment. Those inside are particularly vulnerable because they are not expecting to encounter an out-of-control motor vehicle. After injuries or death in this kind of crash, it is vital to have legal advice to consider a lawsuit.
A car crashed into a Subway restaurant and injured a customer. The accident happened at around noon. According to a worker in the restaurant, the woman who was operating the vehicle - an SUV - mistakenly put her foot on the gas instead of the brake, causing the accident. The woman was in the vehicle with her husband. She was taken to the hospital for an examination. A customer was pinned to the wall in the restaurant and taken to the hospital as well. The incident is still being investigated.
Any car accident can cause extensive damage to people who are involved. These crashes can come about for a variety of reasons like speeding, negligence, reckless driving, driving under the influence and distracted driving. Because vehicles are so large and often are traveling at significant speeds, a person who is hit by one and is not protected by a vehicle of his or her own will be prone to injuries. That can lead to massive medical expenses, lost time on the job, the inability to be an active part of a family and more. Insurance companies might try to offer a settlement after an accident, but the amount they provide is rarely enough to make a dent in all that was lost. This is when it is imperative to consider a legal filing.
An SUV ran into a Subway restaurant and pinned one of the patrons against the wall. She was taken to the hospital and although her injuries were reported as not being serious, that does not mean she will not suffer aftereffects that were initially not evident. This can be on a physical and emotional level. A lawsuit can recover compensation for her losses. Speaking to an attorney about a case is the logical first step to being adequately compensated.
