Five people were seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash on Dela Palma Road. The accident took place around 7 p.m. on Nov. 18.
The accident involved an SUV with one occupant and a car containing four people. The car was traveling north on Dela Palma Road in Williamsburg Township when it overcorrected due to coming off the road. It crossed the centerline and went into the southbound lane where it collided head-on with the SUV, according to an Ohio state patrol sergeant.
Three of the injured were transported by helicopter to UC Medical Center and the others two were taken by ambulance to nearby emergency centers. All of the victims were able to communicate at the scene.
Adverse driving conditions, such as when there is snow and ice on the road, require drivers to be more conscious of their surroundings and to keep driving speed slow. If a driver fails to do so because he or she was distracted, speeding or under the influence and an accident results, then the injured victims may be able to file a personal injury claim against that person.
The victims of a car accident may want to speak to a personal injury attorney. He or she might be able to demonstrate fault on the part of the accused by using available evidence provided by authorities. If the driver is found to have been negligent when the wreck occurred, then the victims could receive compensation for hospital expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and property damage costs.
