Woman killed in rollover car accident

Car accidents can be scary events for drivers and their passengers. From simple fender-benders to massive head-on collisions there are a lot of things that can go wrong during an accident. Besides the damage that can occur to peoples' cars, injuries are also common with car accidents. Car crashes can easily lead to brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries or worse. These injuries can leave Pennsylvania residents with months of recovery time and massive debts.

Recently, a Pennsylvania accident turned deadly. In this case, a 60-year-old woman was traveling on Interstate 95 with three other people in a Buick LeSabre. She was a passenger in the car. As the car was traveling down the roadway, it tried to change lanes when it was hit by another car.

As a result of this impact, the LeSabre hit the center median and began to roll over. The car rolled multiple times before it came to a stop. The woman was thrown from the vehicle during the accident. Other people inside the LeSabre were also seriously injured because of the accident. The driver of the other car, however, was unharmed.

No matter how scary the car crash is, or how severe the injuries are, people need to make sure they investigate why the car accident occurred. A complete accident investigation is essential in determining liability. Through the investigation, people can determine whether negligence played a role in causing the accident. If the accident was caused by the negligent driver, then compensation may be available to accident victims.

When people are killed in a car accident, like in this case, their family should carry out the investigation. They may be able to bring a wrongful death suit to recover compensation.
