Car wreck causes 1 death, several injuries

One woman recently died in a three-vehicle crash that took place in West Virginia. It happened on a Friday evening in early November. The woman who died in the car wreck was 27.

Police said the car crash occurred on Route 2. They said the woman was riding in a car, while her husband was driving it. The man suddenly stopped to turn, and he was rear-ended by another car.

The couple's vehicle entered the lane going south, where it was hit by an oncoming vehicle. Authorities said the woman was transported to a medical center and had to undergo surgery, but she ended up dying. Meanwhile, her husband suffered serious injuries, including a fracture to his pelvis. In addition to the couple, several other people suffered injuries deemed to be minor. Police continued to investigate the collision.

The surviving loved ones of the woman may choose to file a wrongful death claim against the party deemed to have caused the West Virginia car wreck, seeking damages. In addition, her husband may choose to file a personal injury claim. A successfully litigated claim may help to provide the injured person with much-needed financial compensation that will help with medical bills or, in the case of the woman who died, provide funds to reimburse her family for end-of-life expenses. A monetary award may also help to cover the deceased woman's future lost wages. Claims for monetary damages will be adjudicated only if and when liability has been established in a manner that satisfies the court with jurisdiction in the case.
