Recently, a car carrying several college students was hit by another vehicle in Greensboro, N.C. Three of the injured students were taken to the hospital following the accident; one of them had to be kept in intensive care for an extended period of time. Car accidents can seriously injure and kill their victims but they can also disrupt a person’s life substantially. In the above accident the students were all softball players for Elon University and now may not be able to continue on the team.
One of our firm's clients was a high school junior who was a starting pitcher on the varsity baseball team when his car was struck by a city school bus. The school bus driver failed to yield the right-of-way at a four way residential intersection, and may have also been exceeding the speed limit. The collision totaled the vehicle being operated by our client, the high school pitcher, but no passengers were on the bus at that time. Our client was seen at the local Emergency Room that day and was unable to pitch for months because of multiple injuries.
