Woman injured in a car accident due to wrong-way driver

Even drivers in Pittsburgh who exhibit extra caution to avoid being in a car accident will not know what to do when there is a vehicle heading for them in the opposite direction. Because a head-on crash is so hard to avoid and can inflict so much damage, those who are involved in this type of accident will frequently have severe injuries. In turn, this will result in significant medical bills, lost wages and other issues that can be difficult for the injured victim. When there is a head-on crash, it is critical to know how to seek compensation in a legal filing.

According to a recent report, an early morning head-on accident led to two people being injured. The accident happened at around 3 a.m. when a 30-year-old driver in a Chevrolet Equinox was going in the wrong direction on the road. The car crashed into a Honda Civic being driven by a 26-year-old woman. The driver of the Equinox suffered minor injuries. The driver of the Civic suffered serious injuries and was hospitalized. Initially, the driver of the Equinox was believed to be driving drunk, but he only received a reckless driving charge. The investigation is ongoing.

After a head-on car accident, the victim could be in for an extended stay in the hospital with various medical treatments and issues getting back to normal at home and at work. This can result in a significant life change with the medical costs, potential need for help to function on an everyday basis and the inability to get back to normal. While it might not seem to be the most important thing in the immediate aftermath of a crash, thinking about the future is essential and that can include a legal filing.

The recent wrong-way crash is still being dissected to determine how and why it happened. The woman who was hurt and her family must make certain to keep track of how the investigation is proceeding and to have legal assistance from a law firm experienced with helping those who have been injured in a car accident.
