Former boy band member, Nick Lachey and his wife Vanessa, were involved in a Uber car accident over the weekend. The accident happened on Saturday evening in Los Angeles, California. According to Lachey’s post on social media, the couple had hired a Uber driver for an evening out when the vehicle was involved in a minor accident. There were no injuries reported, but Lachey encouraged individuals always to wear their seatbelts on his Instagram post. The immediate details about the crash were unknown.
Car accidents involving commercial vehicles such as tractor-trailers, delivery trucks, cabs, and buses can result in serious injuries and death. Commercial drivers are often required by law to obtain a specific driver’s license and are restricted from operating their vehicle for more than a specific amount of hours at a time. However, drivers often ignore these regulations that can lead to driver fatigue causing an auto accident. All auto accidents have unique circumstances, and a full investigation should be conducted to determine liability. An experienced St. Louis car accident lawyer can determine who is responsible, as well as if a third party claim or wrongful death claim could be filed.
