One of the vehicle's occupants, a 16-year-old, was ejected and suffered serious injuries. The remaining three occupants, including the driver, only suffered minor injuries. Although transported to the hospital, it is unclear how many remain hospitalized.
Anyone who has received treatment at a hospital likely knows that even a minor procedure can lead to a significant medical bill. When a person faces multiple injuries due to a serious car accident, medical bills can quickly become overwhelming. In this case, the victims' parents may also miss work -- and wages -- as they provide care, further complicating their financial situation. As a result, when an accident is caused by another's negligence, many victims in Pennsylvania and their families file a personal injury lawsuit. A successfully presented claim can result in a monetary award that will provide relief for the financial implications of such an accident.
