Auto Accidents in a Pizza Hut Drive-Through Restaurant*

Unfortunately, because drivers are in such a hurry they don’t always drive carefully when entering the parking lot or drive-in of fast food outlets, and collisions with other vehicles may take place. If you are injured in any kind of vehicle accident, whether it is while you are parked in a parking lot or at the drive-in or take away counter, you may need medical treatment. If the accident wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation, which will help to ease the financial burden caused by the accident. You may need the help of a personal injury attorney to guide you through the claim process.

Personal Injury Claims After a Drive Through Auto Accident

If you are injured at a drive through restaurant, there is a limit to the type of accident that is likely to take place. Most likely it would be a rear-ender, when someone loses concentration when driving towards the drive-in and forgets to apply the brakes and ends up rear-ending the vehicle in front.

If you were the victim of this type of accident and you suffered a serious injury like whiplash, it can take months to recover from. You will need to know what the personal injury laws are in the state the accident occurred in. In most states as long as you can prove that the other driver acted negligently and it was his or her behavior that caused the accident, you may be able to recover the full cost of the financial hardship caused by the accident.

The sorts of evidence that might be helpful to support your case include witness’s reports, a medical report from your physician, and a police report if a police officer was called to write a statement regarding the accident.

Why You Should Use a Personal Injury Attorney

Even though you may believe you are entitled to personal injury compensation, an attorney is a valuable asset, as he or she has the experience to compile a convincing claim on your behalf. If the claim is won, it can relieve the burden caused by a drive-through accident that wasn’t your fault.
