A man in Indiana has unfortunately lost his life in a car crash, thus leaving his family members to grieve over his sudden death. The car accident took place on a recent Friday night when the man failed to negotiate a curve properly. Sometimes, these types of motor vehicle accidents happen as a result of a driver’s carelessness, which is grounds for litigation.
The accident took place at a little before 10:20 p.m. According to police, a 45-year-old man was driving his car along Indiana 25 South. However, he entered a curve and reportedly ended up losing control of the motor vehicle. At that point, the car allegedly left the roadway and hit a tree.
The man passed away at the crash scene. Meanwhile, the man’s 35-year-old passenger suffered serious injuries in the collision and was taken to a medical center for treatment. His condition was later considered to be stable.
The injured passenger may choose to file a personal injury claim in this situation, seeking the reimbursement of financial damages sustained in the car crash. Even though the man who reportedly caused the Indiana car crash ended up passing away as a result of it, his estate could be named in the passenger’s lawsuit. In addition, anyone else with an ownership interest in the car could be sued for monetary damages. A successfully fought personal injury lawsuit, based upon a showing of negligence, may result in damages to help cover medical costs, the loss of wages and other expenses associated with these types of motor vehicle accidents.
