The accidents that sound the most horrific are sometimes not the ones that cause critical injuries. For instance, imagine someone described this Northern Nevada vehicle accident to you: a small car, say a Saturn two door, hits a semi tractor-trailer, a big one over 50 feet long. The Saturn comes to rest, after the accident, fully beneath the truck. What types of injuries would you expect? This sounds almost like a case where you’d have to fear the worst: critical injuries, loss of mobility or even loss of life. Fortunately, a car crash near Reno had this exact scenario play out, and the woman driving the silver Saturn, an 18 year old from Fernley, Nevada, was only treated for minor injuries. The 35 year old man who was driving the trailer was uninjured. He is from Portland, though no word in news accounts of the crash if that was where the truck was from, or based out of.
This woman is fortunate to have escaped with so little damage and injury in this motor vehicle accident in Nevada. But though she is said to have not been seriously injured, that doesn’t mean she won’t have medical bills that stack up, and loss of income due to time and physical therapy needed to get back to full functioning. Perhaps her injuries, though not life threatening, will permanently affect her life, both her personal activities and her earning potential. While the highway patrol is still investigating the crash, one thing is for sure, and clear to anyone who has ever faced a situation like this: she needs a lawyer.
