Airlift required for 1 of 2 people injured in rollover crash

June 6th, 2013 - by niftyadmin


An accident in West Palm Beach, Florida involved two vehicles and sent one of the passengers to the hospital via airlift. The victim’s injuries were described as serious, as he had been ejected from his vehicle during the “multiple rollovers” his vehicle endured. Another victim was hospitalized, but her injuries were described as less severe.

There are very few details about the crash, which happened last night. However, officials were combing the scene late into the night as the investigation began in earnest. Investigators will look over a variety of factors in the next few weeks to figure out how and why this car accident occurred. Was one of the drivers negligent? Did either driver operate their vehicle at an unsafe speed? Did either driver violate traffic laws?

These questions will hopefully be answered soon, giving the victims of the crash the ability to reference such illegal driving activity (if there is any) in a civil lawsuit.

Given that the crash is a rollover accident, the victims will likely have quite a few medical bills to deal with. Rollover accidents are notorious for causing serious injuries, particularly to the head, neck and spine. These injuries take lots of time in the hospital and plenty of rehabilitation to recover from (and in some cases, full recovery may not be possible).

That is why these motor vehicle accident investigations are so important — they can establish fault, which then allows the injured victims to seek the compensation they desperately need to help pay for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
