Car hits students on sidewalk, injuring four

The one place where people on the road expect to feel safe is on the sidewalk, especially one on a college campus. Generally, motorists driving by college campuses where students are milling about should go slowly and carefully-students may suddenly cross the road or may be passing by slowly, thus creating a dangerous situation.

A second traffic crash took place in Louisiana State University recently, injuring a number of students. According to police officers, a multi-vehicle crash pushed one vehicle onto pedestrians on a campus sidewalk, at an intersection. Four students were hospitalized as a result, with one of them suffering from serious injuries. in the first traffic accident, a student walked into the path of a vehicle and was injured as a result.

When someone is injured in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, it can wreak havoc in his or her life. For example, a student is probably already steeped in college loans and expected to graduate at a certain time to get a job to pay back loans. An injury can delay graduation and that potential job, while increasing expenses in the form of medical bills.

Though it is not possible to quantify the loss or injuries one sustains in a car accident, a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent driver might be one way to at least alleviate the financial burden that follows a crash. Discussing one’s legal options with an experienced attorney in a timely manner may be a good idea for accident victims
