Getting into a car accident can be a traumatic experience. As a driver, you want to know what’s going on, and you want to know it as soon as possible. Are there damages? Is anyone else hurt? What will my mechanic say? These are all questions that come up right after the accident.
Sometimes, however, something even more devastating happens right after the accident. In this case, a man had gotten into an accident on I-77 North. He was near exit 88, and wanted to have a discussion with the driver of the other car, presumably to make sure that everyone was okay.
Unfortunately, his Hyundai Genesis was probably the safest place of refuge, as the man who left his vehicle was struck and killed by another vehicle. Other than the man who left his vehicle, everyone else was not hurt.
The Highway Patrol is looking into the causes of the crash and determining possible liability. The man who was killed was married for over 30 years and sold medical devices. He leaves behind a daughter and two sons.
In cases like these, it becomes necessary to involve a professional personal injury lawyer at the very beginning of the process. Was the initial accident the fault of the man who died? Were there extenuating circumstances? A lawyer can help sort all of that out. Give Auger & Auger a call and we can help you.
