Driver Smashes Into Restaurant And Abandons Passenger Reports Manchester Personal Injury Lawyer

Manchester, NH (Law Firm Newswire) November 30, 2011 – Car accidents are very common. Some accidents bring out the worst behaviors as this case demonstrates.

“This reported case is not unusual in terms of the accident itself, as the car crashed into a building,” explained Charlie Donahue, a Manchester personal injury lawyer located in New Hampshire. “However, what is off the wall is the driver took off after the crash and left an injured passenger behind in the vehicle. That brings new meaning to the term ‘friend’ and not a nice one,” added Donahue.

After the crash, the man left the scene so fast, witnesses were not sure they had indeed seen him run away. What they did recall was that the car was traveling around 100 mph just prior to impact. The man careened into an optical shop and a café when he lost control of his vehicle. The force of the impact drove the car right through the wood panels and concrete.

The police report indicated that the driver had actually lost control of his vehicle two stoplights before the final collision. He also careened into the center divider on numerous occasions. What is not clear is whether or not the driver of the vehicle was DUI. That will not be known until he is found.

“His female passenger was immediately taken to the nearest hospital and there was no word on her condition,” added Manchester personal injury attorney Donahue. “The cops chose to investigate this incident as a felony hit and run. While that may be a slightly odd charge, it will be enough for them to get the ball rolling to track the man down and deal with his egregious behavior in driving negligently and then abandoning the crash victim.”

For those who have been in a similar situation, make no mistake about it, that it is vital to contact an experienced and knowledgeable New Hampshire personal injury attorney. In this accident, the woman will likely want to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver and aim to recover compensation for her injuries, medical bills, therapy, pain and suffering, lost wages, and more.

“There is definitely negligence involved in this case, and if you have been in a crash where the other driver was reckless or negligent, then we need to talk. It’s my job to help you get a fair and equitable settlement or jury award for your injuries. Let’s talk,” suggested Manchester personal injury lawyer Donahue.
