Two people were injured in a crash between a school bus and a delivery van recently in Berkeley County. West Virginia residents continue to be injured or to lose their lives in car accidents on the state's busy roads. In this case, both the driver of the bus and the van driver were taken to hospital with unknown injuries. One other person involved in the collision was not injured.
West Virginia state police, along with ambulance and fire crews, responded to the scene. There were no children on board the bus since it was between runs. Police say the collision is under investigation, but both the bus and the van suffered considerable damages.
Those injured in motor vehicle accidents have the right to seek counsel from an attorney regarding pursuing compensation for injuries suffered due to the negligence of another driver. The injuries West Virginia residents suffer in car accidents can often change their lives. Crashes could result in head injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, bruises, burns and soft tissue injuries.
These kinds of injuries could take months of gruelling and painful rehabilitation and could affect both a person's personal and livelihood. An injured person may be able to receive compensation for lost income, pain and suffering, and medical expenses. A compassionate attorney experienced in personal injury law will provide his or her client with guidance in each step of the compensation process. As well, West Virginia residents who lose loved ones in car accidents would do well to speak to an attorney about pursuing compensation for the loss of their family members.
