Today, in Carnegie, Pittsburgh, police and medics were called to the scene of a Carnegie car accident involving a vehicle, bus, and pedestrian. The Port Authority bus was involved in the accident as a vehicle attempted to go around it and went up onto a sidewalk. When they came upon the sidewalk, they struck a pedestrian. As of right now, the pedestrian’s condition is unknown. However, an official of Port Authority claimed that the driver of the vehicle causing the accident may have been suffering from a medical condition, although it is not known at this time if this is what caused them to clip the bus.
It is not uncommon to see accidents involving a variety of different parties. For the injured pedestrian in the Carnegie car accident, the one who sustained the worst in damages, it might have been quite an ordeal to attempt to pin liability on a party when they probably didn’t see the accident unfold from start to finish. When multiple parties have been involved in an accident, liability is not always as clear as it seems.
In any case, if a medical condition ends up being the cause of an accident, a series of experts will give testimony to show whether or not the person knew that they were suffering from a medical condition and decided to drive even with this knowledge, knowing that it could lead to an accident. This is why it is always important to speak to an attorney about your case so that you can get a start on liability and determining who owes you damages. We want to hear from you if you have been injured in an accident and need our help. Call us today at Edelstein Martin & Nelson at 888-208-1810.
