After being injured in a car crash, gathering information may be vital. Injured parties may need certain information for insurance purposes and in order to take other actions that may be suited to their situation. Car accidents that involve tractor-trailers can often cause serious injuries, and in many cases, injured parties may wish to file a civil lawsuit against the parties considered at fault.
One man may be considering such legal action after a recent crash in Oklahoma. Reports stated that the incident occurred at an intersection when a semi-truck was traveling south and a car was heading east. The two vehicles collided, but additional details regarding what may have caused the incident or who may have had the right of way were not available at the time of the report.
The crash resulted in the car driver suffering severe injuries, and he was transported from the scene to be treated at a hospital. He was reported as being 33 years old. The driver of the semi-truck apparently did not suffer any injuries, and he remained on the scene. Authorities were continuing to investigate the collision.
Car accidents that take place under such circumstances can have many outcomes. If the driver of the truck involved in this Oklahoma crash is considered responsible for the incident, the injured car driver may have cause to file a personal injury claim against the driver and company for which he works. A successful civil claim could allow him to be awarded compensation for medical bills, physical and mental anguish, and other damages permitted under state law.
