W. VA car accident leaves 4 injured and one facing charges


With everything that car accident victims face following an accident, financial stress related to the accident is not an additional concern victims should have to worry about. A recent West Virginia accident left four people in the hospital with a variety of injuries, some of them serious. The accident occurred when one of the vehicles involved ran a stop sign while turning left and was struck by a pickup truck. The passenger in the vehicle that made the illegal left-hand turn was ejected from the vehicle and is in critical condition. The driver and passenger in the pickup truck were also taken the hospital. The driver of the vehicle that ran the stop sign was to be taken to the hospital and is now facing charges. Police are investigating the accident but said charges against the driver making the illegal left turn are pending.

Car accidents can lead to different types of injuries. Victims can be in a car that is struck by a negligent driver; other victims can be passengers in the vehicle of a negligent driver. Regardless, victims may find that what they share in common is pain and suffering, medical expenses and other damages following a car accident. These damages may be compensable.

Car accident liability is based on the concept that each driver owes other drivers, passengers, pedestrians and those sharing the roadway a duty to be careful to avoid harm or injury. When a driver is careless, such as a distracted driver, a driver that is texting and driving or a drunk driver, the driver may owe compensation to any victims harmed as a result. When a driver has violated the law in some way in causing the accident, that violation of the law is usually considered evidence of negligence.

Car accident victims typically have enough to deal with following the trauma of a car accident. The legal system offers procedures to compensate them from the harm and to avoid additional financial inconvenience after an accident.
