We live in one of the most laidback areas of the countries, and we are blessed to live in such a wonderful city. Unfortunately, while this may be true, it does not mean that car accidents are any less likely here. In fact, as the capital of Texas, and one of the state’s biggest tourist cities, our streets are often congested, which means that car accidents are just a fact of life, and this was on full display early Saturday morning in south Austin.
According to Austin-Travis County EMS, the motor vehicle accident occurred at the intersection of West Mary Street and South 1st Street just before 3:00 a.m. on Saturday. Two adults were pinned inside one of the vehicles as a result of the accident.
In total, four adults were injured and taken to local hospitals, including both Dell Seton Medical Center and St. David’s South Austin Medical Center. One person had critical, life-threatening injuries. Two others had potentially serious injuries, and the other has potentially serious, but not life-threatening injuries.
What are their options?
While the details of the accident are unknown at this time, the accident victims should contact an attorney immediately. They can help them understand who may be at fault because Texas law protects car accident victims and allows them to hold negligent drivers accountable for their accidents. However, proving fault and getting justice can be complicated and hard, which is why anyone involved in a car accident should contact an attorney immediately.
