Driving under the influence of alcohol, or any other drug, is reckless and inexcusable. Alcohol and drugs have the ability to significantly impair your judgment, making it more likely that you will be involved in an auto accident. Accidents involving cars traveling at a high rate of speed have the chance to seriously injure those inside the vehicle as well as those in other vehicles who are sharing the road with you. If you are injured in an auto accident, or a loved one dies, due to the other driver being intoxicated, you are entitled to monetary damages for your medical expenses and other types of damages. The expert auto accident personal injury attorneys and wrongful death lawyer specialists here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates will work tirelessly on your case to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
The victim of a fatal rollover crash in Sevierville, Tennessee this past Wednesday night has been identified as an 18 year-old from Seymour, Tennessee. Bradley J. Gattis was thrown from the vehicle and killed when the Chevrolet Silverado pickup he was a passenger in veered off West Main Street, near Mize Lane, at high speed, then crossed the center median and rolled over several times, according to the Sevierville Police Department. Excessive speed and alcohol may be factors in the crash. A second passenger, 17 year-old Elisha C. Whaley, also from Seymour, was ejected from the truck and suffered serious injuries. The pickup’s driver, Andrew S. Hoffman, 21 years-old of Seymour, only sustained what appeared to be minor injuries. Ms. Whaley and Mr. Hoffman were flown to the University of Tennessee Medical Center via Lifestart helicopter.
