Man sues West Virginia Police after car accident

Any driver on any road, at any time could be involved in an accident. A car accident could be the result of negligence, whether it is speeding, failing to signal or crossing the centerline. Other crashes could simply be an accident without any direct cause. No matter the cause, an automobile collision could result in serious injuries and severe damage. Drivers should always practice safe driving habits, such as watching their speeds, maintaining their lane and yielding to other drivers.

A man from Putnam County is suing the West Virginia Police for injuries he suffered in a car accident that took place in the summer of 2011. The man alleges that an on duty officer struck the front left side of their vehicle while the officer was driving their patrol car. The impact from collision caused the man to veer off the road, and strike an electric pole. The man claims that the officer was negligent and careless, and that he sustained damages and suffered injuries as a result.

When a driver is injured in an automobile collision, they could file a personal injury claim. The lawsuit could cover the financial burdens that resulted from the incident. Medical bills, rehabilitation, damages, lost wages and pain and suffering could be covered through the compensation awarded. The resulting damages and injuries may affect the life of the injured party, and, when there is a liable party for the accident, it is important that the affected party is compensated.

The complexities associated with a car accident can be intense and emotional. An injured party wants to be made whole again, and may need to research their rights to understand all their legal options.
