Car accidents: Collison results in serious injury, fatality

| Jan 18, 2018 | Car Accidents

In the blink of an eye, a collision with another vehicle can change a person’s life. Serious car accidents can result in permanent injury, hefty medical bills and even death. Sadly, two people were seriously injured in a recent Delaware collision; one victim did not survive.

The collision occurred between two sedans during the early morning commute. Accident investigators are still determining the events that proceeded the accident but anticipate answers once evidence is examined. Police, rescue crews and investigators closed the area of the accident to traffic for approximately three hours.

When rescue crews arrived and assessed both victims, the 46-year-old female victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The other victim, a man, was removed from his vehicle and airlifted to a medical center for treatment. Although his medical condition was critical, reports indicate that he may survive his injuries.

Although there is not a clear negligent driver in this prior to the accident investigation results, investigators will most likely determine if either driver’s actions may have caused or contributed to the collision. In other car accidents where there is a suspicion that one of the drivers may have violated a traffic law, driven distracted or was impaired, a driver may be found financially responsible for his or her actions. A lawsuit in civil court may garner compensation for a victim’s financial expenses related to an accident and other documented damages. An accident victim or family of a deceased victim can gain an understanding of their rights and options by speaking with a personal injury attorney in Delaware about their case.
