Glen Levine, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash. “This was an unfortunate single-car accident that led to five people being hospitalized. When there is a portion of the road surface that is damage, motorists can be distracted. If you combine this with a driver that possibly was distracted they can put the lives of others at risk. When a negligent driver causes a crash, he or she could be held accountable for the accident. An injured victim should seek out an experienced accident attorney to help with the collection of compensation for medical care, losses and damages.”
