Montlick & Associates, Attorneys at Law Reports on a Tragic and Fatal I-20 Van Roll-Over Accident
Steve Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Channel 2 Action News reported today that there was a tragic traffic accident that occurred along Interstate 20 this morning.
The driver of a van was killed after being ejected from the van as it rolled over as a result of the crash. This horrific accident closed both the east and west bound lanes along I-20 for several hours.
Reports from both The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Channel 2 Action News state that the driver of a van was traveling along I-20 east in Atlanta. The driver of the van lost control of the vehicle after striking the rear of a vehicle that was stopped. At the time of the crash, passengers were providing aid and assistance to accident victims of a separate accident.
The identities of the parties involved in the crash have been released at this time.
Vehicle Ejections Significantly Increase the Risk of Serious Injury or Death
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has indicated that rollovers involving vehicle ejections constitute the most deadly type of collision. According to a study published in the Annals of Advanced Automotive Medicine, ejections greatly increase the risk of injury or fatality in a rollover crash. The study also found that seat belt use substantially reduced the risk of a partial and complete ejections.
Talking to the Insurance Company After an Accident
Insurance companies are for-profit organizations that train their adjusters to resolve claims for the most minimum amount possible to claimants. Some adjusters are also incentivized to delay as much as possible to encourage a lesser settlement amount on behalf of the claimant. Don't sell out for less than your injuries and damages are worth. If you have been involved in an accident that you believe was was caused by someone else's negligence, be sure to consult with one of our knowledgeable attorneys at Montlick & Associates before giving any statements to insurance companies. Do not delay in seeking legal assistance, as you have a minimum amount of time to pursue a claim.
