A two-vehicle crash in Clark County has sent three people to the hospital. The afternoon collision took place near the 3600 block of Old Columbus Road in Springfield, Ohio.
According to law enforcement, a sedan was traveling along Old Columbus Road when it collided with a pickup truck traveling the opposite direction. A preliminary investigation indicated that one vehicle veered too far to the left and into the other lane, where it struck the other car.
Occupants in the sedan were trapped in the wreckage following the accident and had to be extracted by first responders; they were sent to Springfield Regional Medical Center. Occupants in the pickup truck sustained injuries as well and were also sent to Springfield.
After a serious crash, getting back to normal is challenging
When people think about recovering from a serious car accident, they imagine casts, crutches, surgery, and wheelchairs. Of course, overcoming physical injuries is an important part of the recovery, but victims face other obstacles as well. They may also encounter medical debt, unemployment, and mental trauma.
It can be difficult knowing where to turn in such dire circumstances. Thankfully, victims have options. Ohio law creates a cause of action for those injured in a crash caused by negligence. With the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer, they can file a lawsuit against those responsible. A successful suit may result in a considerable financial award.
If cost is a concern, many lawyers offer a free initial consultation at no out-of-pocket cost to the client.
