Motorist Strikes House with Vehicle in Brevard County
On May 31, a motorist crashed into a home, damaging the building and requiring the driver to be airlifted to a nearby hospital.
According to a report by WOFL Fox 35, the motorist crashed into a home in Viera, in Brevard County. The accident occurred around 5a.m., and the impact was forceful enough to trap the driver in the vehicle, according to Brevard County Fire Rescue officials quoted in the news report.
Due to the severity of the wreck, rescue workers were forced to cut the motorist out of the vehicle, which remained lodged in the side of the house at the time of reporting, and the motorist was airlifted to Holmes Regional Medical Center. While no one in the home was injured, the crash did damage the structure of the home, and the Brevard County Building Department will have to assess the damage to the structure before the wrecked vehicle can be removed. Florida Highway Patrol is still looking into what caused the driver to crash into the house.
Contacting a Car Accident Attorney for Injuries, Property Damage
While this may not be the type of crash that comes to mind when we think of typical auto accidents, you may find yourself facing a series of obstacles when a car accident suddenly affects your life. These accidents could be the result of anything from distracted motorists, drunk drivers and auto defects.
Although this particular accident resulted only in damage to the home itself and none of its residents, not all victims of such accidents are so fortunate, as some accidents like these result in serious physical injury or even death.
If a motorist crashes into your home and causes injury or damage, speak to an attorney to find out what your options are. An auto accident attorney can advocate for you in situations like these, litigating your side of the case to help you in your fight for what you need and deserve.
