After an accident, you may have the question - is a tire blowout an at-fault accident? Depending on the cause of the blowout, you may be able to prove that the other driver, a maintenance provider, manufacturer, or seller was at fault for your accident. You may be able to claim compensation for your damages from the person who was at fault.
Can you sue a drunk driver after an accident? If the fact that the driver was impaired caused the accident, then you can sue the drunk driver. Drunk driving accidents can have life-changing consequences, often resulting in serious injuries or even fatalities. Such events can abruptly halt your life as you know it. However, if you were not the one driving under the influence, you shouldn't have to pay for the mistake. Luckily, the law allows you to claim compensation if a drunk driver hits you.
After suffering injuries in a car accident, seek medical attention without delay. This will enable you to undergo a thorough examination and receive treatment for physical injuries resulting from the accident. Seeking immediate medical care can also help in creating a detailed medical record documenting your injuries, which can be used to substantiate claims for compensation that you may wish to make later on.

Wrongful death settlement for family of pedestrian struck in crosswalk.

We recently wrote of the increased dangers that elderly pedestrians face in urban areas. Wes Kruger, age 64 was in a cross walk on February 10, 2010 when a left-turning Megabus struck him and dragged him 30 feet before stopping. Kruger died soon thereafter at Northwestern Hospital. It appears that the bus driver simply did not see Mr. Kruger in the crosswalk. There was no failure of bus maintenance or driver training proven at trial.

The wrongful death suit was settled for $5.1 million. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to the Krugers and sincerely hope this settlement can provide some closure for this tragic traffic accident.
