Many Pennsylvania residents may think that if they are seated in a parked car, they are relatively safe. Unfortunately, even if a person’s vehicle is appropriately stopped in a parking spot, the occupants of the vehicle can become the victims of a truck accident. A recent case shines light on the type of danger a person in a parked car can face.
The story begins with a man and woman seated in a parked vehicle, outside a local pub. For some reason, the driver of a large utility truck veered off the road and struck the car. From there, the details grew even stranger. The driver of the truck put his vehicle into reverse, and proceeded to ram the front of the pub over and over again.
The frightened couple in the car suffered serious injuries. Rescuers had to cut the car apart to render aid. The bizarre accident is still under investigation, and representatives for the truck driver’s employer state that he has been suspended while the investigation moves forward.
When innocent people are seriously injured in a truck accident, they can face many stressful matters in the aftermath. Many Pennsylvania victims find themselves strapped with medical bills, loss of wages due to inability to work and other serious ramifications of being hurt. If a victim wants to seek justice in a court of law, a compassionate attorney may be the ticket. An attorney can help a victim with legal matters as he or she attempts to recover from injuries caused by the actions of another individual.
