On January 21, 2015, two men were injured when they got out of their disabled vehicle on Highway 101. Apparently there was a solo-vehicle crash and the two men were attempting to push the vehicle out of the traffic lanes when they were injured.
They were rushed to the San Francisco General Hospital in critical condition shortly after the injury. The driver and passenger of the vehicle that hit the two men had minor injuries. Another car stopped to assist the men, and was involved in the accident as well, but it is unclear how at this point. None of its passengers were injured. The collision is still under investigation.
The two injured men may have a pretty good case for civil damages against the driver and passenger that hit them as they attempted to move their vehicle off of the road. While it is true that the men were in the road, drivers are expected to maintain proper lookout, which means that they should always be aware of their surroundings. Failure to maintain this lookout may be cause to award damages.
Because these men were in critical condition, a personal injury lawsuit may be a good option for them to help with medical costs and any other future health concerns.
