Motor vehicle accidents: Crash at gas pump injures 1

While being prepared for the possibility of a collision can be helpful, it could be nearly impossible to predict when or where one may occur. Motor vehicle accidents can take place under a variety of scenarios, all of which run the unfortunate chance of having catastrophic consequences. A man suffered serious injuries during a recent crash that reportedly occurred as he was pumping gas in West Virginia.

The accident is said to have taken place on a recent Thursday night as the man was at a convenience store filling his vehicle up with gas. According to reports, a nearby driver suddenly lost control of her vehicle and veered off course. The vehicle proceeded to crash head-on into the man's car and the impact of the collision forced the car to strike the man.

Law enforcement agents have advised that the man suffered severe injuries in the incident and say he was rushed to a nearby hospital for medical care shortly thereafter. Although there were others inside his car at the time of the crash, no one else was injured in the process. Although an investigation is currently ongoing, no further details were provided as to what might have caused the driver of the first vehicle to lost control and veer off the road.

With less in the way of protective barriers to shield them, those who are standing outside of a car when motor vehicle accidents occur have a greater chance of suffering severe harm. Individuals who suffer serious injuries under similar circumstances and wish to know more about the next steps to take to pursue accountability in civil court could benefit from speaking with an attorney for guidance. An attorney can examine the situation and assist client in West Virginia in pursuing the restitution entitled through a personal injury claim.
