We’ve all swerved to avoid some debris in the road, a partial tire, a bumper, or maybe a log or a rock. According to a report from the American Automobile Association, around 50,000 crashes a year in the US are caused by debris or objects on the roadway. Of those, around 9,000 end in injury and 125 people die from those injuries.
Multi-Car Wreck Sends Four to Hospital in Vermont Vista
The Los Angeles Police Department says that three vehicles collided around 9 pm, Saturday, June 13, 2020, on West Century Boulevard at Denver Avenue. EMS transported four people to a local hospital with serious injuries.
Police are not sure what caused the accident, however, they were looking at whether a couple of tires found on West Century Boulevard either belong to one of the cars or may have been a factor in the crash.
Debris Caused Crashes and Liability
Avoiding something on the road is a natural instinct, and it can save the driver and the occupants of the car from injury. However, sometimes when a driver swerves, they cause an accident involving other vehicles. So whose fault is it?
At the Law Offices of Steers & Associates, we’ve helped victims of accidents in all types of crashes, including ones caused by debris and or a swerving driver. We’ve heard the stories from the victims who were told by the insurance company that the accident was either their fault or no one’s fault because a tire was on the road. Either way, they refuse to pay.
The best way to combat this is to come and see an attorney who knows the law and is experienced in getting victims the compensation they deserve. The law says that is someone is negligent and causes an accident, then that person owes compensation to the victim.
If an object is on the road and the person swerved, the law doesn’t automatically say that it’s the person who swerved’s fault or that it was no one’s fault. Rather, the court will look at the circumstances and determine who was negligent.
