Multi-vehicle crash sends two to hospital with serious injuries

It can be difficult for Baltimore residents to focus and concentrate during a stressful incident. Perhaps the only thing more difficult is trying to remember minor details of the incident at a later time, as the person may not have been focused on these minor details in the first place. This is particularly true when a person is injured in an auto accident, which can be a life-changing experience.

The number one concern in any auto accident is making sure that the people involved in the crash are safe and healthy afterwards. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

For instance, a woman and her child were recently hospitalized after they were involved in a multi-vehicle collision. The accident left one person trapped inside a vehicle, which required rescue crews to use the "jaws of life" in order to remove the woman from the vehicle. Ultimately, the woman and her minor child were brought to the hospital in an ambulance, and were said to be in serious condition.

In many car accidents, individuals are able to remain at the scene afterwards, where they can take pictures, write down their reflections of the crash or otherwise preserve some evidence of what happened. However, in accidents like above, with a person's health being the utmost concern, it is not possible to preserve evidence in this way. Indeed, a person may not even be conscious until much later after the accident.

There are other means of obtaining evidence of the crash, however, which might be later used to help the person recover damages in a personal injury lawsuit. For instance, individuals can obtain a police report of the incident, which can reveal the circumstances of the accident and how it occurred. There may even be preliminary indications of which driver was at fault for the accident. The individual can also work with a personal injury attorney to determine what other evidence might be collected and how to best use it to recover damages.
