Firemen lifted the vehicle from the victim using high-pressure airbags. Four other people were also taken to hospitals with back, neck and facial injuries. No official word was given on the status of any of the victims or their identities, but police sources did state that one victim left the hospital not long after the incident.
Accidents such as this one take a very hard physical toll on victims. When a driver is negligent and causes a collision, the harm may not stop with damage to the vehicles. In this case, a man’s legs were seriously injured and others suffered physical damage as well because of a rear-end collision. A personal injury attorney can talk to the victims of such accidents and help them understand their rights and how they may be able to collect damages for their injuries to pay for medical bills and other costs.
