Car wreck leads to 2 injuries in West Virginia

Two people were recently injured in a motor vehicle crash in West Virginia. The car wreck took place on a Saturday along Interstate 64. It involved four vehicles.

According to police, a tractor-trailer was pulling an excavator and stopped in traffic due to a wreck near an exit. A pickup truck that was towing a car then struck a black car in front of it. This caused the car to strike the tractor-trailer.

Police reported that one individual became trapped in the pickup truck, while another one was trapped in the black car. Rescue crews had to cut them out of their vehicles. They were then transported to the hospital with serious injuries. Crews at the scene of the motor vehicle accident said it would take an hour for the wreck to cleaned up.

The driver of the black car may decide to file a personal injury claim against the driver of the pickup truck, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages sustained in the crash. Liability has to be established to the satisfaction of the civil court hearing the case, based upon a showing of negligence, before claims for monetary damages will be determined. A monetary award in a successfully fought case may help to address pain and suffering, as well as emotional distress, caused by the motor vehicle accident. Financial damages may also help to cover hospital bills, the loss of wages and other expenses stemming from the West Virginia car wreck. No amount of monetary compensation can reverse the events leading to the injury accident, but it may help a victim to more easily move forward after the ordeal.
