As a Lebanon car accident attorney, I’m relieved to learn that this man will recover from his injuries. In my time as a personal injury lawyer, I’ve bared witness to many accidents similar to this and know that it could have been much worse. I wish him a speedy recovery so that he can begin to put this incident behind him.Tweet
