Personal injury: Head-on collision leaves 1 in critical condition

| Oct 12, 2017 | Personal Injury |

Collisions that occur when a vehicle enters the wrong lane of traffic can be devastating. There are a multitude of scenarios in which a similar accident can occur, but in each the result may be the same. Those who suffer serious harm due to the negligence of another may wish to seek compensation through a personal injury claim. A recent crash that took place under similar circumstances has left one dead and another in critical condition in Washington.

According to authorities, a man was traveling the wrong way on the interstate on a recent Monday night when he suddenly collided with another vehicle. They say the crash was severe, and the damage to both vehicles was devastating. They have advised that the man was pronounced dead shortly after the incident, and the woman in the other vehicle was rushed to the hospital for treatment of critical injuries.

An investigation into the incident has determined that both drivers were wearing their seat belts at the time. However, there was no indication as to what may have caused the man to veer into oncoming traffic, and it is unclear if intoxication may have been a contributing factor. In similar incidents, the other party may have little to no time to react to such negligence, potentially leaving that individual to suffer in a situation over which he or she had no control.

Individuals who suffer serious injuries due to another party’s negligence may wish to pursue compensation, but the process can be stressful and daunting. When facing a similar situation, one could speak with a personal injury attorney for advice on available options for legal recourse. An attorney in Washington can address a client’s injuries and financial needs and assist in pursuing the full amount of compensation deserved through the necessary channels.
