Three people sustain serious injuries in a car/bus collision
No one can predict when a car accident will occur. Here in Prince George's County, some local residents have witnessed auto accidents while traveling on Maryland's beltways. A collision between a car and other motor vehicle often results in damaged property and injuries to the people involved. Most survivors of car accidents consider themselves lucky if they only suffer minor injuries. In many cases, victims sustain debilitating or fatal injuries as a result of motor vehicle crashes.
A recent Baltimore, Maryland, crash resulted in three people being transported to a hospital after a car collided with a bus. Based on a report, the accident happened at a city intersection during evening hours. Emergency responders extricated three occupants of the car and transported them to a local hospital where they were listed in serious condition. Authorities said they will continue to investigate the accident.
Due to limited information provided by news agencies, readers can only speculate about how the accident occurred. Authorities, on the other hand, will investigate the events to determine which party failed to exercise due care prior to the collision. Some of the most common causes of car accidents are failure to observe traffic rules and regulations, driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and distracted driving. If any of these factors contributed to this crash, charges may be filed. The injured parties can seek compensation only if the accident resulted from the bus driver's negligence or failure to exercise due caution. The results of an investigation conducted by law enforcement and other agencies can determine if negligence was a contributing factor to the crash.
Seeking compensation from responsible parties can seem like a daunting task. With legal help, injured parties can better understand legal remedies that may help them recover from their injuries, both physically and financially.
