4-vehicle accident leaves 1 person injured

Four vehicles were involved in a head-on collision on Oct. 20 in the town of Hamilton. The accident left Highway 16 closed for around an hour and a half. What's amazing in this instance is that only one person was injured. Those hurt as a result of any car accident should have a full understanding of their legal rights so that they can make an informed decision about whether and how to best pursue the recovery of compensation for their suffering.

The accident occurred at around 10 p.m. near the Hidden Trials Corn Maze. The La Crosse County Sheriff's Department said a woman driving an eastbound vehicle turned left in front of a westbound vehicle resulting in a head-on collision. Those two cars then collided with two others. A 19-year-old woman who was a passenger in the westbound car was taken to the hospital. The nature and seriousness of her injuries wasn't reported.

Authorities gave the driver of the car who caused the accident a citation for failure to yield the right of way when turning left. The sheriff's department said it took about 90 minutes to clear the wreckage. Both the West Salem Police and Fire Departments and the Onalaska Police Department assisted in the accident.

The injured passenger and those drivers who suffered property loss as a result of this accident may be entitled to compensation for injuries and damage suffered. Having a full understanding of their legal rights will help them make better legal decisions throughout the case.
