Prince George’s County Auto Accident Leaves 1 Dead

One woman has died and three other people were injured in a one-vehicle car accident in Prince George’s County earlier this month.
According to the Washington Post, the accident happened around 8 p.m. on one Sunday night on Route 1 near Wells Parkway, about a mile south of the University of Maryland.
Prince George’s County authorities have said the woman driving swerved off the road and crashed into a creek. She was killed in the crash.
There were three other people, including an infant, in the car. All of them sustained injuries.
The accident remains under investigations, so authorities have not said what they think led the woman to drive off the road. They also have not released details on the injuries the three people sustained.
As an attorney, I have dedicated a significant portion of my practice to helping auto accident victims from Maryland, Virginia and the D.C. area. I know from experience that in a situation like this, the three people who were hurt in the accident might feel like they have no recourse because what happened to them was a terrible twist of fate and nothing more.
Actually, in some cases, a personal injury lawsuit against the driver (or, in this case, the estate of the driver) might be warranted. There is no way to ensure that any lawsuit will be successful, but when injured plaintiffs win, they are often able to recoup medical expenses and obtain compensation for lost work, pain and suffering and the like.
Many times the at-fault driver may have NO insurance or not ENOUGH insurance to compensate an innocent victim. This situation is NOT fatal to an adequate recovery. An innocent victim may be able to look to other policies that provide coverage to make up the difference.
