Car accidents: Pedestrian severely injured in drunk driving crash

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can be dangerous, and a similar decision can place the safety of everyone nearby at risk. Far too many families have experienced loss in car accidents involving similar acts of negligence. A man has recently been arrested and charged with DUI after he hit a pedestrian before fleeing the scene of the accident in Tennessee.

Law enforcement agents advised that the investigation into the accident began when they found a man lying in the street. He was transported to a medical facility soon thereafter for treatment of injuries considered to be life-threatening. While investigating the incident, police spoke with a witness who watched it occur and was reportedly able to provide them with a description of the car that struck the man.

Police located the car driving away from the location and initiated a traffic stop. Upon approaching the vehicle, they found signs of damage indicating it was involved in the collision. They also assert that the driver appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, and he was arrested and charged with drunk driving and leaving the scene of the accident.

Individuals who suffer serious injuries in car accidents involving drunk drivers may face a variety of hardships, physical and financial alike. When another party is at fault in a similar incident, a person could choose to speak with an attorney for guidance on his or her available options for legal recourse. An attorney in Tennessee can evaluate the incident, along with the client's injuries and financial needs, and assist him or her in pursuing the full amount of compensation entitled through a personal injury claim.
