Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
A brief police chase in Grand Prairie, Texas ended in an injury crash when the car being pursued hit another vehicle. The driver of a Nissan Altima fled from police when a routine license plate check revealed that the plates did not match the vehicle’s description. The driver who had fled police suffered minor injuries in the crash, but the innocent driver of the hit vehicle needed hospitalization, reported Fox News. Getting injured in an accident when a driver attempts to avoid responsibility for his actions can make the incident even more painful. However, victims of the crash may have options to recover financial compensation for their injuries, said Nancy Trimble, spokesperson for Dallas Car Accident Lawyers, a website that helps accident victims connect with a Dallas car accident attorney and find legal advice.
In this case, the driver who fled the police will likely face serious criminal charges, as well as a civil lawsuit for the accident injuries and property damage. According to Texas law, the driver of the vehicle who caused the accident is responsible and at fault even if the driver was committing a criminal act at the time of the accident.
“Many people who are injured in a police chase would also consider suing the police department. This is a question a lawyer could best help you answer,” said Trimble. “Whether to bring such a lawsuit would depend on the specific facts of the case.
Dallas Car Accident Lawyers is dedicated to helping those injured in car accidents receive the compensation they deserve. The website connects victims with lawyers who have the right expertise to work on their cases, so they can get qualified legal advice and an objective view of their options.
Victims of reckless or negligent drivers in Texas may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, future lost wages, physical impairment or disability, pain and suffering, and decreased quality of life.
“In many cases, this compensation means more to the victims of the crash than the criminal charges,” said Trimble. “The money helps many injured people to go on with their lives.”
Trimble noted that if the Nissan has no insurance, a lawyer can help the innocent driver make a claim against the uninsured/underinsured coverage on his own policy, provided he has the coverage.
People who have been injured or who lost a family member in a Texas car accident caused by the negligence of another person deserve compensation for their injuries and loss. Get connected with a Dallas car accident attorney who is right for your case at (646) 600-8204.
