Just after the celebrations on July 4th, a man jumped from a Chevy Tahoe north of Marysville causing a three-car accident. The 27-year-old man leaped from the Tahoe for unknown reasons while it was traveling 55 miles-per-hour. He sustained critical injuries. A 66-year-old woman was also injured in the crash.
Police suspect the 16 year-old driver may have been under the influence of marijuana at the time of the accident. There were more passengers than seats in the Tahoe – including children as young as one-year-old. An investigation is ongoing.
Car accidents like this are, thankfully, not a daily occurrence – but they are not entirely rare either. In these types of accidents, determining liability can be exceptionally hard. Even when an accident is not nearly so complex there can be a number of factors that go into who is liable and where compensation should come from. This is why you need an experienced attorney on your side immediately following your accident.
