Car Accident in Harrison County Sends Four to Area Hospitals

A car accident in Harrison County Tuesday night sent four people to area hospitals. According to news outlets, the wreck occurred around 6 p.m. on Route 18, near Hepzibah in Harrison County, West Virginia.

According to state police, Gary Stout of Lumberport was driving towards Clarksburg when a Ford Escape crossed the center-line of the road and hit his vehicle head-on.

Healthnet landed on the scene and flew a male passenger who was in the Ford Escape to Ruby Memorial Hospital for injuries. Three other passengers of the Ford Escape were taken by Harrison County EMS to United Hospital Center. There is no word on their condition.

State police stated that the crash was not drug or alcohol-related but that charges were pending.

Serious car accidents can bring with them many complications. After the accident, injured victims will often need complicated and costly surgeries and may have permanent medical conditions as a result of the wreck, oftentimes with no means to pay for such treatment.

Additionally, navigating the insurance maze after a car accident can be difficult. An experienced accident attorney can help identify insurance coverage that can potentially be collected, assist in figuring out the cause of the accident, and can effectively negotiate with the insurance company to help in making you whole again.

An attorney can also keep the insurance companies from making repeated calls to you after your accident when the insurance company is trying to push a settlement. Oftentimes the insurance companies will push settlement immediately after the accident in the hopes that an individual takes a settlement early so that the insurance company doesn't have to be fully responsible for the harms caused by the wreck. If you have been injured in a car accident it is important to consider not settling your claim until it has been determined that you are finished treatment for your injuries. If not, you could end up being responsible for medical bills for injuries that were caused by someone else's carelessness.
