Police say that alcohol may have played a role in this Arizona fatal rollover auto accident and plan to test the driver’s blood. They also say that the driver most likely would have survived if he had been wearing a seatbelt, and that it is a shock that the passenger wasn’t thrown from the car after it rolled several times – especially since he wasn’t wearing a seatbelt either. Still, many car accidents happen and regardless of whether the person was wearing a seatbelt, the car accident is still not their fault. Just because you are not wearing your seatbelt in a car accident does not mean you are not entitled to an injury claim. Read the rest »
