A recent auto accident in Ohio left two adults and one child injured. This incident reportedly occurred September 28, in Liberty. Those who suffer personal injury in such events may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses through legal means.
According to a news report, a 34-year-old woman was operating her vehicle in the westbound lane of Tibbetts Wick Road when a vehicle in the eastbound land crossed the center line and struck her car head-on. She and her 4-year-old little girl were both injured in the wreck. Emergency responders transported them both to an area hospital for the treatment of unspecified injuries. Their current conditions are unknown.
The driver deemed responsible for the accident — a 37-year-old male — was also hurt in the wreck. He, too, was sent to a medical facility for care. According to police, this individual left his lane while trying to get a hold of a CD. Drugs, alcohol and speed are not believed to be factors in this case.
Distracted driving is a major issue in Ohio and elsewhere. This is what police believe led to this particular collision occurring. If the victims would like to pursue compensation for their losses, they may do so by filing personal injury claims in court. In order for such claims to be successful, they will have to prove that the driver thought responsible was negligent in his actions, resulting in the wreck. If this can be accomplished, the court may award the mother and child monetary relief for any losses that are deemed recoverable.
