Occasionally, a family member or friend who is driving with a loved one or a close friend gets into a collision with another car or truck, causing injuries to their loved ones. In such situations, the injured party often is hesitant to pursue just financial compensation because they do not want to financially harm the driver. Although this hesitation is perfectly understandable, if the injured party were to pursue a claim, more often then not, the driver’s insurance would cover the compensation and the financial impact on the driver would be minimal.
For example according to MySanAntonio, last month, a vehicle carrying several San Antonio residents was involved in a single-car accident, after one of the vehicle’s tires blew out. The van’s passengers included the driver’s son, a family friend, the driver’s daughter, and the driver’s boyfriend’s daughter. The driver’s son and family friend died at the scene. The other three had non-life threatening injuries.
There is no doubt that the driver will forever be traumatized by the accident. Still, those who suffered injuries are entitled to compensation for the injuries caused by the crash.
Those injured in a San Antonio car wreck, or their grieving loved ones, shouldn’t hesitate to pursue the driver of the vehicle for compensation for their losses.
