West Virginia car accident kills 2, injures 1

A car accident can impact many lives in an instant, and can result in death, injuries and damages. A West Virginia community recently suffered the loss of two teenagers in a head-on car collision. An 18-year-old driving a pickup truck attempted to pass a car and struck another pickup truck driven by a 17-year-old boy head-on. The 16-year-old passenger in one of the trucks suffered serious injuries but is expected to survive.

Although car accidents can take place in an instant, they can have far-reaching consequences in the lives of the victims and their families. Unfortunately, car accidents are all too common, occurring approximately every ten seconds in the U.S. They can leave victims and their family members with huge bills to pay from the medical or funeral expenses.

Because of this, victims and families of victims who have lost a loved one in a car accident may wish to bring a claim against a negligent driver for the damages suffered. Often, insurance companies are involved in the compensation process. Once a claim has been filed, a driver's negligence will be evaluated based on a variety of factors. These factors may include disobeying traffic signs and signals, failing to signal when turning, disregarding posted speed limits, failing to adjust for weather or traffic conditions or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

If an individual has been injured or killed in a car accident, victims or family members of victims may wish to determine if the damages they have suffered are compensable. A trained personal injury attorney can help both victims and the families evaluate the circumstances of the situation to guide them in the correct direction.
