When people get injured in a vehicle accident, it is understandable for them and their family members to feel heartache and be confused about what could have caused the incident. A car crash can easily take place if someone is not abiding by traffic laws. One man unfortunately suffered injuries in a recent vehicle accident in West Virginia.

The accident took place in late June in the area of Route 10. Witnesses said a 53-year-old woman was operating a car quickly. She did not slow down upon entering a curve, police said.

At that point, her vehicle went over the middle line of the road and crashed into a truck that a 25-year-old man was driving. The driver of the truck suffered injuries and was transported to a medical center. Authorities say he should survive, but the woman who allegedly crashed into him died. Her 28-year-old son also died in the crash. Police continued to investigate the crash.

The man who was injured in the West Virginia car crash could end up not being able to go back to work for a long time due to incapacitating injuries. In addition, he likely has hospital bills in light of the collision. The injury victim has the right to file a liability claim against the estate of the deceased driver as well as against any other person who owned the car she was operating at the time of the wreck. If the victim is able to furnish proof that she was driving negligently, he may be awarded financial damages that can help him to cover losses connected to the fatal accident.
