According to WFAA-TV, a car crash ended up with the vehicle in a KFC franchise during the weekend of the 16th of February.
The story details that the car, a sedan, plowed into the restaurant and ended up in the area of the restaurant where customers sit. Nobody was reported to have been injured in the crash and there were no charges filed at the time of the report. The police are currently investigating to see what caused the wreck.
Unusual Car Crashes
Most of the car crashes that wind up in lawsuits involve collisions on the roadways. This is not always the case, however. People have been hurt and killed while trying to service their own cars on the side of the road, while standing in their own yards and driveways and even while sitting in their own homes by negligent drivers. These accidents are not the norm, of course, but they do happen and people sometimes end up suffering grievous injuries because of them.
Cars that plow into houses, even when they don’t end up injuring someone, can end up causing serious amounts of property damage, putting the homeowner into dire financial straits. In the best cases, the driver has enough insurance coverage to take care of the damages or has money of their own that they can use to make sure that the homeowner is taken care of. Some drivers do not have either, however, and others may have both but try to get out of the obligations they got themselves into because of their own negligence.
What to Do
A Dallas car crash lawyer may be able to help you in the event that you’re injured in an unusual car crash, but it depends upon the circumstances. There are cases where whatever caused the crash had nothing to do with negligence on anyone’s part and that means that the attorney may not be able to get you compensation through a lawsuit.
The attorney will tell you whether you have a good case or not when they meet with you for a consultation or shortly thereafter. The attorney will usually not take a claim that isn’t going to win because, if they work on contingency, they don’t get paid if they lose a claim. This means that you can hire them with the confidence that they do believe in your case and that the feel it has a good chance of winning.
