Car accidents occur when Tennessee residents least expect them

Car accidents can cause serious, sometimes catastrophic injuries. Many Tennessee drivers expect to be involved in at least one or two in their lifetimes. However, car accidents involving pedestrians are a very different story.

According to the police, a Tennessee driver has been accused of not only jumping a curb, but of striking two families who were outside a frozen yogurt shop in Spring Hill. The accident occurred around 9 p.m. during the first weekend of May. Police say the driver, a 54-year-old man, shouldn't have been driving in the first place, as his license had been suspended.

The man was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and DUI second offense. He was also accused of driving with a suspended license and vehicular assault. According to Spring Hill police, additional charges are still pending. Nine victims from two families were involved, including four parents, four young children and a 68-year-old grandmother. She was airlifted to a local medical center with critical injuries.

Besides the emotional shock that has been felt by and the physical harm that has been inflicted upon these two families, car accidents like these can result in a staggering amount of medical bills as well as lost wages, in addition to the emotional distress and sometimes diminished quality of life. The victims of this particular accident might enlist the help of an experienced attorney who can better advocate for their rights. A personal injury attorney can help the individuals seek recovery of monetary damages occasioned by the tragic accident.
