Car Crash in New Martinsville Leads to Serious Neck Injury

A woman is suffering from two broken vertebrae in her neck after an accident on State Route 2 in New Martinsville, West Virginia (WV). The driver of a 1996 Chevrolet Silverado crossed the roadway, but failed to see the oncoming 2009 Honda Accord driven by the victim. As a result, the victim’s vehicle and the Silverado hit each other.

As reported by Wetzel Chronicle, the victim was taken toWetzel County Hospital and then later airlifted to Ruby Memorial Hospital after the two fractured vertebrae were found. Due to the severity of her neck injury, she is required to keep her neck immobilized for a period of six to eight weeks.

The driver of the pickup truck was cited by the police with failure to yield in the accident.

The victim in this accident should consider speaking to a personal injury attorney who is licensed in West Virginia to discuss her legal options. Simply because the driver of the pickup truck is facing criminal charges does not preclude her from seeking damages through a personal injury claim. In addition, there is a good chance the victim will accrue a large amount of medical bills due to the severity of her injury and she will probably see a decrease in her quality of life as she’s forced to keep her neck immobile for close to two months.
