Auto accident results in 4 victims receiving medical treatment

It's always sad when a traffic accident involves children who suffer serious injuries like in the following case. No one wants to see children get hurt, and it can lead to devastation for everyone involved in the crash.

This auto accident that took place in Daniel Island, South Carolina, sent four people to the hospital. According to the officials in Charleston, the accident happened on SC-41 at the intersection of Halfway Creek Road when a van traveling west on Halfway Creek did not stop for a stop sign. It was then hit by an SUV that was heading north on SC-41.

In the collision, all of the people in the van, including one adult and two juveniles, suffered serious injuries and had to be transported to the Medical University of South Carolina. One of the children, only 2-and-a-half-years old, was injured more severely than the others.

The driver of the SUV suffered nonlife-threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Cases like this are tragic because young people are impacted by the actions of adults. Whether because of distractions, exhaustion or other issues, parents, guardians, teachers and others always need to be on their guard when traveling. Taking their minds or eyes off the road could be enough of a mistake to lead to a serious crash.

If you're involved in a collision due to a person not stopping at a stop sign or traffic light, you should seek compensation from them and their insurance carrier. Your injuries are a result of their carelessness, so you have a right to speak up and seek the compensation you deserve.
