People who have been injured or lost loved ones in car accidents might be wondering whether they can do anything to recover damages for their injuries or loss. Fortunately, in some cases the answer is yes.

Depending on the circumstances of a car accident, people who have been injured or lost a loved one might have that option. If the other party was driving unsafely, such as texting and driving or running through a stop sign, they open themselves up to the possibility of civil litigation. The only way to know for sure if you have a case is to consult with an attorney.

Take for example a recent case in Portland, Indiana, where the estate of an Indiana woman has just filed a wrongful death claim. One year ago, a truck driver who had allegedly ran through a stop sign hit and killed the woman and her husband, prompting the civil suit to recover damages for medical costs, funeral expenses and loss of love and companionship.

The Price of a Car Accident Demands Justice

Death is one of several outcomes when facing a car or truck accident. Surviving family members may be in a situation much like the one mentioned earlier. Survivors of vehicular accidents may have a radically changed life where they are unable to provide a living for themselves and their family or require help to maintain their quality of life.

Injuries sustained during a car accident include traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries (SCI). In 2010, the Centers for Disease Control estimated the lifetime costs associated with an SCI could reach into the millions of dollars.

Truck drivers must take a great amount of caution when navigating over highways and interstates during the coldest time of year.

Indiana State Police responded to a truck accident in Lowell involving multiple vehicles last Tuesday. Police are saying the accident happened, because the driver of the truck did not properly maintain a safe speed and hit a patch of ice on the road, causing him to lose control of the truck.

During the course of the accident, a chain reaction occurred that pulled in five other trucks and a van. Two people inside the van were crushed between two semi-trucks and had to be escorted to Jasper County Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Accidents like this are a common occurrence during the winter, and speed can contribute to a higher number of truck accidents due to slick and icy roads. Prior to this large truck accident, additional accidents had occurred where several vehicles lost control and slid off the roadway. Large trucks can weigh tens of thousands of pounds, meaning greater momentum and speed can be especially dangerous to other drivers.

What Can You Do if a Truck Driver Causes an Accident?

Truck drivers who drive unsafely in poor weather conditions may face civil suits from the people they injure, as truck accidents are capable of causing traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and paralysis. It is highly advisable to consult with an attorney to explore your options if you have been injured in a truck accident.

The blood thinner Xarelto (Rivaroxaban) is the latest in a long line of upstarts to try to challenge warfarin (Coumadin) as the dominate anticoagulant (blood thinner) on the market. Unfortunately, while Xarelto has made a name for itself of late, it is not for overtaking warfarin, but because of claims that bleeding issues relating to its use can result in serious injuries and even death. Although the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Xarelto in 2011, the drug has since come under FDA scrutiny. Most notably, in 2013, the FDA issued a warning to Bayer AG and Janssen, the makers of Xarelto, that the company's print advertisements for Xarelto were misleading and did not properly communicate the risks of taking the drug. In addition to drawing a warning by the FDA, after being linked to bleed-out events that led to severe injuries and death, Bayer AG and Janssen are...
