2 Injured in Nova Scotia Car Crash, Driver Charged

by | Wednesday, July 23, 2014

A man who was involved in a car accident in Nova Scotia on July 20 was charged for his involvement in the incident. According to the report, the collision took place on Highway 103 between Exits 10 and 11 at approximately 5:40 p.m.

Based on the preliminary investigation, it appeared that a green Ford Escape was heading west on the highway when he collided head-on with a Mazda. The driver of the Ford, a 40-year-old man, and the driver of the Mazda, a 26-year-old woman, were both transported to hospital for treatment of injuries that were described as not life-threatening. At the time the report was released, both individuals had been released from the hospital.

Once the male driver was released from the hospital, he was brought to the Cookville RCMP Detachment in order to give a breath sample. He was charged with impaired driving and was scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 3. At the time the report was released, the authorities were still investigating the crash.

Those who were injured in a drunk driving accident may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver who apparently caused the accident even if that driver is already facing criminal charges. In many cases, this type of lawsuit allows the injured person to seek compensation for any losses that they sustained as a direct result from the crash. For example, they may be able to recover the cost of any hospital bills that were incurred during treatment of accident injuries, any lost income if the injured person could not work while recovering from the crash and compensation for pain and suffering.

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
