Car accidents and associated injuries are not merely confined to roadways, as some residents of South San Jose learned firsthand in a tragic accident recently. While it is generally safer to be inside buildings, even this is not always enough to keep people safe when it comes to vehicles weighing a ton or more with enough speed behind them.
The accident occurred in the late morning on Friday, Nov. 11, when two cars collided in the street outside a credit union, sending one of the vehicles through the wall of the building. Sadly, one person inside the credit union was killed, and another was seriously injured.
According to the police who responded to the scene of the crash, both of the drivers involved in the incident remained on site and were cooperative with authorities. The accident is still being investigated, and charges have yet to be filed against any particular party.
As heartbreaking as it is, this only serves to perfectly illustrate how your life could take a sudden turn, through no wrongdoing of your own. Unfortunately, many automobile accidents create victims whose only offense was being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
If you have been injured in an accident, or if someone you know has been killed in an accident, you deserve to have your rights represented and your losses fought for by an experienced attorney. With proper representation, you can pursue justice for your losses with confidence, knowing that they have an empathetic ear and the experience to achieve fair compensation for what you have had taken from you.
