Car Accident - Hit-and-Run Accident Reconstruction to Help Build Strong Case

Throughout the career of a hard-working Detroit personal injury lawyer, it is common to represent a number of individuals who have sustained severe personal injury or died as a result of car accidents. All cases handled are tragic, just like the example the hit-and-run accident three months ago that resulted in the fatality of a six year-old girl.

On November 12th, 2009 Lisa Xavier was driving with her parents on the way to her violin lesson traveling in a Toyota Camry. While driving, a Ford Mustang ran a red light and smashed directly into the family’s vehicle. As a direct result of the injuries sustained in the car accident, Lisa died the next day. Her mother survived but sustained a broken neck, as well as a disc injury and a ruptured artery.

At the time of the car accident, the driver of the Mustang was engaged in an auto race with another driver. After impact, he got out of his vehicle and abandoned it before leaving in the car of his fellow racer. Police have been unable to track down the suspects of interest, and therefore the investigation still continues.

In order to reconstruct the accident scene, half a dozen police officers spent a countless amount of hours working with lasers and other tools in order to make the most precise measurements of the location. According to law enforcement officials, this is being done to ensure the strongest case possible when suspects are brought into custody. “It’s just helping to make our case a little stronger when we do find suspects,” commented police officer Sgt. Matthew Ortega.

The results of car accidents can be devastating, as seen by the tragic example of Lisa Xavier–severe personal injury or death can occur as the result of a driver’s negligence to obey traffic signals, pay attention to the road, or follow the law. Sustaining such intense injuries can leave a person wondering what to do next. For the answers to all of the questions you undoubtedly have, it is essential to contact an experienced Detroit personal injury attorney for legal representation immediately.
