Early this morning, a car in Georgetown flipped, slid off the roadway, and then crashed through a fence and hit the back of a home. A passenger in the vehicle was tragically killed, but no one in the home was hurt.
You don’t hear about car-house collisions much, but they happen. In fact, earlier this week, another lawyer and I were talking about (okay, actually emailing each other about) a similar case.
Sadly, these kinds of cases happen more than any of us would like to think.
In the case at hand, the real question is what kind of claims the passenger might have. As usual, the passenger’s family and estate have a wrongful death clam against the driver of the car. But they may also have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage available. They just need to make sure they do a proper investigation of available claims before they start trying to resolve the matter.
