No one ever wants to be involved in an accident. However, accidents happen every day in the Franklin area, as well as anywhere else. When people are hurt in car accidents there is the possibility that they will be eligible for compensation
Actor and former professional wrestler, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is grateful that his mother is still alive after the car, which she was driving, was apparently hit by another car that was being operated by a drunk driver. According to reports, authorities had attempted to pull the man in question over but he allegedly fled the scene. Investigators say he ran two red lights and eventually his car slammed into the car being driven by Mr. Johnson’s mom.
The actor’s mother was reportedly taken to the hospital for treatment, as was Mr. Johnson’s cousin who was a passenger in the vehicle. According to court papers, authorities have issued a warrant for DUI and other charges against the man who was allegedly driving the vehicle in question and who allegedly fled officers after they attempted to pull him over.
Any time a car accident occurs it has the potential to be serious. That is especially true when it involves a negligent or drunk driver. If you have been involved in accident that was caused by a drunk or negligent driver, then you might be entitled to receive compensation. Now might be the best time for you to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer and see if you have a strong case.
