Freak Accident Causes Flames on I-595Credit: CBS4
In a dramatic accident, a motorcycle flipped over an overpass railing and onto a car below on I-75. Two people were taken to the hospital. Very fortunately, no one suffered any life-threatening injuries! The driver of the motorcycle lost control of the bike on an I-595 overpass and flew off the bike. The bike went over the railing and struck a car, causing it to burst into flames. It shut down traffic on I-95 for over an hour.
This was a fortunate case in terms of bodily harm, but the vehicles are probably both totaled. Insurance adjusters sometimes have trouble believing stories like this without performing an investigation on their own. Even in a freak accident, you may be entitled to compensation if the insurance adjusters do not agree to pay enough to cover the cost of the vehicles. Insurance was created just for freak accidents like this. The best way to make sure you’re covered is to ask before it happens, but there is a catch-22 in that. Freak accidents are just that, freakish. While it’s good to do your due diligence, sometimes something happens so far beyond the pale that a court needs to get involved just to sort out the details.
