At least 3 injured in serious accident in Indiana

Indiana drivers must exercise necessary caution on the roads. Drivers are required to follow traffic rules, and this can help reduce the risk of an accident. When these rules are not followed, such as yielding the right of way, it can result in serious injuries. A recent serious accident involved three vehicles and sent two victims to the hospital by ambulance; a third victim was taken by helicopter.

Reportedly, an 81-year-old man did not yield to a van that was operated by an 80-year-old. As a result, these two vehicles collided. A 19-year-old man in another vehicle attempted to avoid the accident by swerving his vehicle. Unfortunately, it still ended up striking the van.

Both elderly men were taken to a hospital for treatment of internal injuries. The extent of their injuries or their conditions were not reported. An elderly passenger in the van was flown to the hospital, also suffering from internal injuries. Her condition was also not provided. The 19-year-old and his passenger did not have any visible injuries, but they were both taken to the medical facility for precaution.  

Apart from any citations or criminal consequences that may arise out of this serious accident, the victims may have cause for legal action against the party or parties believed to have been at fault. A personal injury lawsuit may be filed in an Indiana civil court. This type of lawsuit, with appropriate supporting evidence, may result in an award of financial compensation for accident victims. Any amount recovered can help pay for medical bills, lost wages and serve as reimbursement for any other damages associated with the accident, such as pain and suffering.
