Missouri teens hurt in one-car crash

A one-vehicle accident in Ste. Genevieve County on Jan. 1st, left two teens injured. The incident happened at 9:15 in the evening on Route 0, south of Interstate 55.

The car accident took place after a 19-year-old Ste. Genevieve man driving a 2006 Nissan 350Z overcorrected left after partially going off road on the southbound Route O. This led to the vehicle rotating counterclockwise and as a result going off the left-hand side of the road and hitting an embankment. This crash caused the vehicle to overturn multiple times and finally come to a stop upside down on the left side of the road.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that the driver, who was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the incident, suffered serious injuries and was transported to St. Anthony's Medical Center for treatment. His 19-year-old male passenger, also from Ste. Genevieve, was wearing his seat belt but also suffered serious injuries. He was transported via air by Survival Flight to Mercy-St. Louis.

While anyone can be involved in an accident, victims might wish to seek compensation for the losses incurred in this type of incident if it was due to the negligence of another driver. Losses can include financial ones, for medical services and loss of work, for example, as well as non-financial losses, including those for the pain and suffering experienced by victims as a result of the accident. In such cases, the victims might consult with a lawyer with personal injury experience, who can explain what they need to do to file a claim for damages, and help the victim through the process, from filing, gathering evidence, negotiating with insurance companies and, if necessary, representing them in court.
