Whether in Ohio or some other state, people risk being involved in an accident every time they get behind the wheel. Even if a driver is careful and follows the rules of the road, he or she cannot control what other drivers do, and the results can be disastrous. Such seems to be the case in a recent head-on collision that seriously injured two women in the Buckeye State.
According to reports, the crash occurred around 6 p.m. the evening of Saturday, Feb. 19. The accident happened on Median Road in Granger Township near Ridge Road. Apparently, a woman, 28, broached the center line and collided head-on with another vehicle.
The victim was described as a 75-year-old woman from Medina. Police say both women were wearing their seatbelts, but it did not prevent them from each suffering serious injuries in the crash. They were both taken to a local medical center for treatment, and no word was given as to their current conditions. The accident is still under investigation.
Legal recourse for the victim
Since authorities have confirmed the 28-year-old woman was driving left of center, which caused the accident, the 75-year-old woman can use that as evidence in a personal injury claim against the other. If she elects to pursue a civil claim, she will want to work with an experienced personal injury attorney in Ohio. A lawyer can provide her with a full understanding of her rights and options and remain on hand to handle all aspects of her claim in an attempt at recovering the maximum amount of compensation possible.
