Fatal car accident in Ohio leaves one dead and one injured

Traffic accidents are never expected and always scary. No accident is scarier than one that involves a fatality and injuries. No matter how careful and observant a driver, a car accident can still happen in Ohio. Living through an accident and through its aftermath is one of life's more stressful situations.

In a recent accident in Lorain County, two vehicles were travelling in opposite directions on US 20. One vehicle was a Chevrolet Blazer, and the other was a Ford 350 pulling an empty trailer. The Ford 350 attempted to turn in front of the Blazer and was struck by the SUV. The driver of the Blazer, a 50-year-old woman, was thrown clear of the vehicle and died at the scene. The driver of the Ford 350 was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured, but a passenger sustained serious injuries and was air lifted to a Cleveland hospital.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but neither alcohol use nor drug use is suspected. Regardless of the cause, this was a tragic accident, and those affected may seek legal recourse. By filing personal injury and wrongful death claims, the victims and their surviving families members may receive much-needed compensation to cover the damages and losses they incurred.

A person injured in an accident such as the above may find him or herself confused and scared. In such a situation in Ohio, a person could benefit from sitting down and talking with an experienced personal injury attorney. A lawyer can assist in determining the rights of the injured individual and advise him or her on the best way to proceed. A fatal car accident is a horrible thing to be involved in, but pursuing legal avenues can help a person receive his or her rightful compensation to help with medical expenses, final costs, lost wages and other economic and non-economic damages.
