3 people injured in 2-car collision near Flemington


Most car accidents are preventable. In most cases, at least one driver was negligent in some way, whether by driving too fast or by not paying attention to weather or traffic conditions. Speeding on slippery winter roads, for example, increases the likelihood of a car accident, which is the leading cause of personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits in the United States, including in West Virginia. These types of lawsuits seek to hold drivers responsible for any reckless action that led to an accident.

What exactly happened recently a few miles from Flemington and approximately 25 miles southwest of Morgantown is not known, but three people sustained undisclosed injuries in an early evening car collision. According to the West Virginia State Police, a driver heading north on Berry Run Road lost control of his vehicle around a corner and ended up spinning. His vehicle was struck by a southbound car. Both drivers were taken by ambulance to a hosptial in Bridgeport. A woman passenger in one car had to be cut from the vehicle before being flown by helicopter to a hospital in Morgantown. It is not known if anyone was charged by state police in the crash.

Injury victims may be able to recover compensation if there is evidence the accident resulted from one person's failure to exercise due caution. Investigators must first determine the exact cause of the crash and who caused it before any injured party can take legal action against the responsible party to recover medical expenses and lost wages.

Personal injury claims are common following accidents that result in injuries. Victims can seek legal advice to ensure they are maximizing their chances of getting compensation that will cover all of their losses.
