Travis County, Texas – Three people were severely injured in a vehicle accident on Wednesday morning. According to sources, the accident happened around 8:35 a.m. on Maha Loop Road near Mustang Ridge.
One of the two vehicles that were involved in the crash rolled over. This left one person unconscious and pinned inside their vehicle when found. The person was still breathing and was immediately sent to the Dell Seton to receive treatment for serious injuries
Two of the other people were less injured, according to reports. One of them was taken to St. David’s South with some mild injuries, while the other was taken to Seton Hays County to be treated for minor injuries.
The accident caused a long delay on the northbound frontage while authorities investigated the scene.
The cause of the accident and the crashworthiness of the vehicle must be investigated
The goal of personal injury law is to help injured victims receive the financial compensation they need to put their lives back together. A serious accident is a life-changing event that will affect all involved. To ensure those here receive the help they need, the cause of the accident and their injuries must be determined.
There really isn’t much information to go off here, but despite what the official investigation determines, it will be prudent for the families involved to have an independent legal investigation performed to determine any factors that are not immediately apparent.
In rollover accidents, it is important to examine the crashworthiness of the vehicles involved. Cars should be designed to withstand the force of a rollover crash, and when they are not, the manufacturer may be responsible for injuries that were caused by the defective vehicle. Official investigations are usually only concerned with the cause of the crash, but personal injury law is concerned with the cause of the injury. While these two concepts are often the same, in rollover accidents, they can be different. An independent legal investigation will determine if the injuries suffered here were caused or exasperated by the vehicles themselves and ensure any potential wrongdoer is held responsible.
Medical care and future life changes are significant costs that should be paid for by those responsible for the injury. Our hope is that those injured in this accident can make a full recovery and receive the compensation they need to move forward.
