Woman sues man for car accident caused by negligence

Anyone who is driving on public roadways has to watch what is going on around them. If a person loses focus for even a second, a car accident can occur. While some car accidents aren't too serious, other car accidents can cause injuries that lead to long-term problems or even death. For one Texas woman, getting into a car accident allegedly caused significant spinal injuries.

The accident occurred on May 1, 2012, when the woman was on Interstate Highway 10. She says that the man wasn't paying attention to traffic, which led to him crashing into the rear of her car.

The woman has opted to sue the man who rear-ended her car. She claims that he acted in a negligent manner. She claims the car accident caused spinal injuries necessitating surgery. She says her medical bills are around $50,000. The March 12 lawsuit was filed in the Jefferson County District Court and seeks damages, court costs and interest.

When there is traffic around you, it is vitally important to pay attention to what is going on. Taking your eyes off of the road for even a short period can lead to an accident. Unfortunately, a driver allegedly not paying attention led to this woman suffering from spinal injuries that will likely plague her for a long time. With the help of her Texas attorney, she has opted to seek compensation for the accident.

Those who have been involved in a similar accident might have the right to do the same. Making sure you understand your rights when seeking compensation is important, and the advice of a Texas personal injury attorney can be beneficial in providing that and other information about pursuing compensation.
