Roswell residents are strongly encouraged to practice defensive driving in order to avoid accidents. While such advice may certainly be sound, one cannot completely negate the potential of being involved in a collision due to the fact that they cannot control the actions of others. Indeed, it is when those actions are negligent that people are placed in the position of needing to seek compensation following a car accident. Such a decision typically does not arise from any sense of bitterness, but rather the need for assistance in dealing with the expenses associated with an accident.
Depending on the severity of an accident, such expenses can be enormous. They are almost certain to be following a multi-car collision that recently occurred near Ranchos de Taos. A car was attempting to pass a line of slower-moving vehicles when it collided head-on with three others. The passengers in the first car that was struck had to be extricated from their vehicle by emergency responders, while the other vehicle collided with also sustained serious damage. The passengers in the car that caused the collision, however, bore the brunt of the damage. The front seat passenger was killed, while three children riding in the back were all seriously injured.
The driver of the car responsible for the accident admitted to authorities that she had consumed alcohol before driving (subsequent tests confirmed her assertion). Recklessness such as this can cause devastating consequences, and those who engage in it may need to be held responsible through a lawsuit (on top of whatever criminal charges they may face). Those needing to pursue such a lawsuit may first want to retain the services of an experienced attorney.
