Many people do not realize how frightening it can be to be pushed in front of a car, much less a fire truck. However, for one unfortunate driver involved in a fire truck accident, she now understands it and has the injuries to prove it.
Two people near Atlanta were injured on Hickory Flat Highway at the intersection of New Fowler Lane. The first driver was attempting to turn left when a second driver struck her from the back. This forced her car, a Honda Accord, to be shoved into the other lane, where a fire truck struck her car. Emergency crews took both drivers to local hospitals after the accident; their injuries are unknown at this point. None of the firefighters were injured as a result of the accident. The police are still investigating the accident, and no charges have been filed at this time.
When someone is involved in an accident, the first and most important thing to do is to make sure that they are safe. After that, it is important to figure out how to be reimbursed for the various expenses incurred, such as medical expenses, property damage and any other related costs. One of the best ways to be reimbursed for these costs is to bring a lawsuit. When there are multiple parties involved, this can often be more complicated than when there is only one other car involved. Leaving out a party means there is a chance that a percentage of the expenses could go unpaid because that party that is not included and could be found at least partially responsible.
When trying to completely recover from an accident, it is best to seek out help in order to make sure that all parties are included so that any expenses can be completely reimbursed. This way, the recovery process can be completed as fast as possible.
