Police in Ohio recently arrested the woman accused of purposely causing a car crash that left her and four other people injured. This event occurred in the Warren area on Sunday, May 27. The victims who suffered personal injury in this collision may have legal recourse.
According to reports, in the early morning hours, several people got into an argument at a local grocery store. When one group of individuals tried to leave in their car, the other group got in their vehicle and followed them. The pursuing car allegedly struck the back end of the other car, causing it to go off the road and hit a tree. Both drivers and all of their passengers suffered injuries in the wreck and were transported to area hospitals for treatment.
The driver believed responsible for this event is a 24-year-old woman. The whole thing reportedly started when this individual started yelling profanities and racial slurs at the victims. She has since been charged with vehicular assault and driving while impaired.
According to state laws, those who suffer personal injury due to the negligence of others may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses. In this particular case, those victims who wish to pursue civil claims against the driver believed responsible may do so, but to be successful they must prove to the court that the accused was indeed negligent in her actions. An experienced attorney can help the victims present their cases and fight for fair and full compensation either in an Ohio civil court or through out-of-court negotiations.
