Personal injury: Crash at intersection injures 6 in Washington

| Sep 13, 2018 | Personal Injury |

As many as six individuals suffered injuries in a recent accident in which a driver failed to adhere to a traffic light upon approaching an intersection in Washington. Car accidents that take place at intersections can be dangerous incidents that could place the safety of all parties involved at risk. Those who suffer serious harm due to the acts of a negligent driver may wish to pursue restitution through a personal injury claim, but they might need assistance in navigating the process.

Law enforcement agents advised the incident occurred on a recent Saturday night when a car failed to stop for a traffic light upon approaching a local intersection. After entering the intersection, the car proceeded to strike a nearby vehicle that was attempting to navigate a left-hand turn. The force of the initial impact reportedly caused the second vehicle to collide with a third and fourth vehicle.

Although an investigation into the accident is underway, no further information was provided as to why the driver who caused the accident may have failed to adhere to the traffic light. According to reports, as many as six of those involved in the accident were transported to a medical facility for treatment shortly after the accident. The driver of the fourth vehicle reportedly remains in the hospital in serious condition.

With the extensive costs of treatment and the possibility of a need for long-term medical care, suffering serious harm in a dangerous accident can be a devastating experience. Those who encounter a similar situation could choose to speak with an attorney for guidance on their available options for legal recourse. An attorney can examine the incident and assist a client in Washington in pursuing restitution through a personal injury claim against the party deemed at fault.
