An Arizona man required emergency medical care after being struck by a car, recently. The personal injury he is said to have experienced is quite serious. While few details have been released regarding this accident, police are still investigating and more details are likely to emerge.
According to reports, this accident occurred in the Tempe area. The victim was waiting at a bus stop at around half past 5:00 a.m. when he was struck by a passing car. He was quickly transported to a hospital for the treatment of his injuries, some of which required surgical repair.
Law enforcement officials have said that two individuals were in the automobile at the time of the crash, both a male and a female. Police have indicated that they believe the driver may have been impaired; however, this has yet to be verified. It has not been reported if any charges have been filed in this case.
An accident, such as this, that results in serious personal injury is not something a victim will be able to easily overcome. The physical, emotional and financial damages can simply be overwhelming, to say the least. The victim in this particular incident may choose to pursue legal actions against those believed responsible for his injuries. This may be done by filing a personal injury claim in an Arizona civil court. If negligence can be established successfully, the victim may be granted monetary relief which can allow him to focus on getting the care he needs and less on his financial concerns.
