Firefighters and police officers are often called the great American heroes because of what they do to help normal citizens in extreme situations. But really, we can all be heroes of a similar caliber if we try to help those in trouble. Unfortunately, no matter what we do to help others, fatal accidents do occur, and it can be heartbreaking to watch when you know you are powerless to help. Take the example of witnesses to a car accident on the Southwest Freeway in Houston, Texas. Mary Azari, who works in a furniture store, heard voices and walked out to find, just across the street, an SUV was trapped above, wedged between a big-rig postal truck and the concrete wall. They brought out a mattress, hoping the man in the burning SUV could jump out, but he was trapped and died in the flames. Sisters Georgina and Christiana Roach also witnessed the scene, and they are now complete shook up over it. They say that a relative of theirs died in a similar way. Apparently, the man in the SUV was driving erratically when he hit the big-rig postal truck. The SUV ended up wedged between the truck and the wall when the fire starts, a fire that stopped traffic on the freeway. The driver of the postal truck was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The truck did not have any mail in it at the time. It is truly horrible to have a loved one die in such a way. If a relative of yours was injured or lost his/her life in a car accident, the last thing you want to think about is financial matters. That’s why professional legal help can help you work with your insurance to make sure you get the help you need.
