West Virginia truck accident sends several to hospital

Less than two hours away in West Virginia, a recent collision with a coal truck left several people injured. At least two people were injured, although the extent of the injuries was not immediately known, following the collision of a car and a coal truck. Ambulance and other emergency crews responded to the accident and transported victims to the hospital.

Accidents with large trucks can lead to particularly serious consequences and injuries. Large trucks outweigh passenger vehicles twenty-seven to one. An injured truck accident victim only has to show that the driver of the truck was negligent in causing the collision to recover damages for injuries and the costs of those injuries to the victim. Something as seemingly simple as an inattentive truck driver or truck driver who is speeding may be considered negligent in causing an accident.

Truck accident victims may find following an accident that costs and damages quickly pile up. Because of this, injured victims left with serious injuries following a truck accident may be able to recover a variety of damages based on the circumstances. Medical expenses, future medical care, lost wages, lost-earning capacity and pain and suffering damages may all be available to an injured victim.

Injured victims do not have to continue to suffer following a truck accident. A trained personal injury attorney can help an injured victim evaluate the damages the victim has suffered, including current costs and losses as well any that may reasonably be anticipated in the future. This will allow the victim to receive the appropriate compensate to aid and assist with the victim's recovery.
