A Hunt Valley wrong-way accident involving three vehicles left three people injured on Thursday morning, September 30th. The collision occurred due to a driver going in the wrong direction.
A news report disclosed that the wrong-way crash happened at about 11:22 a.m. on Shawan Road near McCormick Road. The Baltimore County Police said a vehicle traveled eastbound in the westbound lane of Shawan Road. The car then collided with two westbound vehicles, showering nearby cars with debris.
The police said three people sustained minor injuries and received treatment at different area hospitals. The cause of the Hunt Valley wrong-way accident remains under investigation, and no charges have been filed at this time. However, the authorities closed the affected roadway temporarily until they cleared the scene.
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States and Maryland. Traffic collisions happen due to several reasons. While some of them result from driver’s negligence, at other times, it could be because of factors outside their control.
When the accident is a multiple-vehicle collision, it is crucial to determine the right fault party. Knowing the person who caused the accident allows the victim to get compensation from the fault party. Compensation is usually monetary damages or non-monetary damages.
Monetary damages have a fixed dollar amount, and the victim gets back every sum they can prove they spent fixing their vehicles or treating their wounds. Non-monetary damages have no fixed dollar sum because they refer to intangible losses. An excellent example of this compensation is pain and suffering.
Getting the maximum compensation from the fault party requires the expertise of a Maryland accident attorney. So contact us at Pinder Plotkin, LLC, to learn how our injury lawyers can help you.
