Car accident in Illinois injures 4

Police in Illinois are in the process of investigating a two-vehicle crash that injured four people. This car accident is said to have occurred March 26, in Massac County. Per state laws, the victims of this incident may be entitled to seek compensation for their losses through legal means.

At approximately 7:46 p.m. on a local roadway, the driver of a small sedan -- a 25-year-old male -- crossed the centerline and struck another car. He and a passenger in his vehicle were injured and transported to a hospital for medical treatment. The driver -- a 26-year-old male -- and passenger -- a 61-year-old female -- of the other automobile were also injured and taken to a medical facility for care as well. The current conditions of all involved have not been released.

At this time, it is unknown if any charges are pending in this case. Police have yet to indicated what may have caused the driver believed responsible for this collision to cross into oncoming traffic. As the investigation is still ongoing, no further details have been made available.

When a car accident results in injuries and all the physical, financial and emotional losses that accompany them, it is normal for a victim to question his or her right to compensation. According to the state of Illinois, those who have suffered injuries due to the negligence of others may have legal recourse. In this case, those hurt due to the actions of one driver may file personal injury claims in civil court in order to seek damages. If the establishment of negligence is successfully accomplished, monetary relief may be granted for any and all recoverable losses.
