Accident attorney, personal injury Winston-Salem, Winston-Salem Injury lawyers, Mike Lewis

The North Carolina Highway Patrol provided details of a two-vehicle accident that occurred on State Highway 211 in Robeson County on Sunday, August 31.

Motorist Loses Control Before Collision

A 30-year-old man was eastbound in a 2008 Infinity SUV when his vehicle veered off the road to the right and then back across the center line and into oncoming traffic. There, it collided with a westbound 2008 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by a 28-year-old man. The accident report states that the SUV may have hydroplaned just before the crash. Investigators estimated that both vehicles were traveling close to the 55 mph speed limit just before they collided. Both motorists are from Red Springs, according to WMBF News.

Injuries and Loss of Life

The driver of the SUV and his young daughter died in the accident. Emergency personnel took the driver of the pickup truck to South Eastern Regional Medical Center in Lumberton for treatment of injuries sustained in the crash. Medical personnel subsequently treated his injuries and released him.

Although the investigation into this wreck is ongoing, it is often possible for accident victims to seek compensation when injuries result from negligent conduct of another person. Victims seek compensatory damages for medical expenses, pain-and-suffering and lost wages. Parties reach settlements in many cases without a trial.

If you or a family member suffers injuries because of negligent conduct on the state’s roadways, it is possible to discuss the matter with an accident attorney. Our firm provides this type of consultation free of charge. To learn more, please contact us.
