Auto accident results in severe injury to older couple

An auto accident can occur for many reasons. Some happen as a result of weather conditions, some from vehicular malfunctions and some from carelessness of drivers on the road. Two people were recently seriously injured after an auto accident on a highway in Alaska.

The report from a responding trooper indicated that the driver of a semi truck had tried to slow down when a vehicle turned out in front of him. As he applied the brakes, he lost control of the truck and it jackknifed. A woman driving a pickup truck and coming from the opposite direction crashed into the side of the semi.

Emergency rescue personnel on the scene discovered the woman was trapped in her truck and had to cut the vehicle to extricate her. They further determined the injuries she suffered were life-threatening. Her passenger, a 71-year-old man bearing the same last name, was seriously injured. They were both taken to a local hospital for treatment, but there was no update on their conditions at the time of the media report. The driver of the semi was not injured.

Typically, a person who is injured in a serious auto accident does not anticipate the significant costs involved. Many such victims need money to pay the bills amassed from the treatment of those injuries. In those cases, a judgment from a successfully navigated personal injury lawsuit against the party believed responsible for causing the accident may yield the amount needed to fulfill financial obligations. Alaskan residents who are facing these issues in the aftermath of an auto accident have every right to consult a personal injury lawyer to represent their interests.
