Fatal Pedestrian Accident Leads to Criminal Charges for Driver

A truck driver has been charged after striking a man and his three children, killing two of the children and leaving the father and infant daughter with very minor injuries. The accident took place Wednesday morning at an intersection in Charlotte, North Carolina when the driver of a box truck hit the man with his two sons, one and five years old, and his infant daughter. The two young boys were immediately transported to a nearby medical center where they later were pronounced dead. They were walking with their father to their childcare center. The intersection at which the boys were struck has no sidewalk. Police reports suggest that the driver of the truck has been charged with two counts of misdemeanor death by a motor vehicle.

If you have lost a family member due to the actions of another person, such as in a pedestrian accident or auto accident, do not wait to involve a competent attorney. There is legal action you can take to ensure that your rights are protected and that you do not face financial devastation while paying for the injuries that were caused to you. In accidents that were caused by the actions of another person, a Raleigh personal injury attorney from the Whitley Law Firm will be able to investigate the cause of the accident and determine the true value of compensation you are due. In many cases, speaking to an insurance company prematurely can put you into an uncomfortable situation and cause you to accept a low-balled settlement – a settlement that will not cover the true extent of the injuries. Do not wait another moment before contacting a Raleigh personal injury lawyer from our law offices. We can provide you with a complimentary consultation of your personal injury, car accident, or wrongful death case.
