When most people think of avocados, they think of guacamole or a salad. The last thing they are thinking about is a motor vehicle accident. However, a truck carrying 40,000 pounds of avocados on the Texas interstate was recently involved in an incident where the vehicle overturned, causing a collision that was like nothing most people had ever seen before. Avocados were covering the interstate, creating hazardous conditions for the drivers. It took hours to clean all the avocados off the road.
During that time, the road had to be closed down to prevent other drivers from getting into accidents. Although many made light of the situation and found humor in the idea of seeing thousands of avocados spread out on the interstate, injuries were sustained as a result of this accident. Thomas J. Henry Law explains why a personal injury attorney should get involved when a random and unexpected accident like this happens.
Avocados aside, the reason this all happened was that someone lost control of the vehicle or made a bad decision while on the road, ultimately leading to a collision that caused people to suffer from various injuries. Even when random and unexpected situations that cause accidents occur, someone needs to be held responsible.
A Texas auto accident attorney would get to the bottom of the situation to figure out who was initially at fault. It may be a bit trickier to determine the at-fault party when several drivers are involved in the collision. However, that is when the attorney calls in help from expert witnesses and professionals that can reconstruct a model of the accident to provide better insight into what happened.
The truth is that a lot of different things can happen when a situation like this does occur. Victims of these collisions suffer the most with injuries that are often painful and take a while to recover from. Some of the common injuries sustained during motor vehicle accidents include whiplash, injuries to the head and neck, broken ribs, and herniated discs.
The Texas car accident attorney will represent the victim and work on getting the victim compensated. Unfortunately, victims are often unaware of their ability to file a civil lawsuit against another person who may have caused an accident, even if it was completely accidental and unintentional. Even when going up against commercial vehicles that are owned by businesses, the attorney knows the proper steps to take, which would involve collecting as much evidence as possible and working on reaching a settlement to get things settled outside of the courtroom. While reaching a settlement is not always possible, the Texas commercial accident attorney will work hard to get one for the victim that would prevent the victim from having to go through an extensive court battle.
