Roadway collisions have become an all too common event in Pennsylvania and across the country. In addition to the property damage that often accompanies car accidents, those involved may suffer serious injuries as well. Four nuns were recently severely injured in a recent crash.
Police said that the accident occurred one evening on Conchester Highway. Reports indicate that the two vehicles were traveling in opposite directions. For reasons that have yet to be determined, a driver in the opposite lane from the nuns veered over the double yellow center lines. This resulted in a head-on collision.
Everyone involved in the crash was entrapped in their vehicles, one of which was reportedly crushed. After being extracted from the cars by emergency responders, the driver believed to be responsible and three of the nuns were taken to an area medical center in critical condition. The fourth nun was flown to another hospital, also in critical condition.
When victims are injured in similar car accidents, they may choose to seek justice through filing personal injury claims in civil court against any party or parties believed to be responsible. Monetary damages that can be used to help pay for medical bills or any related expenses may be awarded once a defendant is proved negligent. Anyone interested in learning more about such claims could seek out the services of an experienced Pennsylvania personal injury attorney. In addition to providing more information and assistance, an attorney could also provide guidance and support throughout the related legal proceedings.
