Accident victims must be ready to fight for their compensation

In the aftermath of a serious accident, victims cannot sit back and wait for the other drivers' insurance companies to provide them with adequate compensation, and they cannot simply trust the authorities to make sure justice is realized.

In a recent example, the Chicago Tribune reports that an elderly woman was struck by a semi-truck recently when she stopped to help a turtle get across safely.

The Details of the Case

Apparently, an elderly woman saw a turtle trying to cross to cross the freeway and stopped on the shoulder to help. As she stepped out of her car, an oncoming 18-wheeler swerved and hit her, almost killing her.

The woman was brought to the hospital in critical condition and has since improved, the Tribune reports.

Interestingly enough, there are no major curves or hills, no fog or rain or any reason why the truck could not avoid swerving and hitting the woman. Furthermore, the police on the scene simply gave the driver a fine for not slowing down to avoid the accident.
