Is driver's negligence to blame for Laurel fatal accident?

When a family in Prince George's County loses a loved one in a car accident, one of the first things they want to know is what happened, and who is responsible for the tragic loss. If driver's negligence leads to a fatality, the family may seek wrongful death compensation cover any medical costs incurred from an accident, as well as funeral costs, pain and suffering or lost companionship the family will suffer for the rest of their lives.

One Prince George's County family may be considering this after losing a loved one in just such a tragedy now that police have revealed more information that suggests driver's negligence played a role in the untimely death.

The accident occurred recently during the afternoon at the intersection of Laurel-Bowie Road and Montpelier Drive. Police reports say a 56-year-old man was driving through this intersection, when a Mercedes Benz travelling southbound struck his vehicle. The accident lead to fatal injuries for the North Laurel man. The Mercedes driver was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries but had not been charged criminally at the time of media reports.

The Collision Analysis Reconstruction Unit is still investigating the auto accident. However, the Prince George's County Police have provided updated information to the media suggesting that both alcohol and speed were factors in the accident that killed the 56-year-old man. While it may be months before the Mercedes driver sees charges, the family of the man will spend the rest of their lives without him. These kinds of answers will help them ensure anyone responsible for the untimely death will be held accountable and brought to justice.
