The favorite gathering spot of many high school students in the Tennessee town of Arlington was severely damaged when an SUV crashed through the front entrance on a recent Tuesday. Amazingly, only two students suffered auto accident injuries. According to a report by the sheriff’s office, the incident occurred during the locale’s busiest time, between 2 p.m and 3 p.m.
Students were showered with pieces of glass as the bistro’s front windows shattered upon impact. Although many of the people who were in the coffee bar at the time suffered shock, just two of them — both students — were transported to the hospital for treatment. Reportedly, none of the injuries suffered were considered critical.
Reportedly, the SUV driver suffered a medical emergency. The specific details were not reported, except that the health care issue was not considered life-threatening. The driver was also rushed to a medical facility. Drivers in Tennessee must take due care while behind the wheel, even if they have medical problems of which they are aware.
Victims of auto accident injuries are typically entitled to pursue claims for financial relief through the civil justice system. In a case such as this one, the skills of an experienced personal injury attorney may be crucial. The lawyer can deal with insurance claims, and if that does not provide sufficient compensation, the options of filing a civil lawsuit can be considered. Legal counsel can assist with establishing negligence and documenting losses to present to the appropriate civil court in Tennessee for adjudication.
