Categorized as Auto Accidents

Nevada, MO (December 04, 2020) – A single-car accident that caused injuries to the vehicle’s passenger took place on Thursday, December 3rd on US-54.

Police reports indicate that, at about 10:00 p.m., a 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass was traveling westbound along US-54, just east of the city of Nevada, when, for reasons that have yet to be determined, the vehicle left the paved portion of the highway, and crashed into a utility pole.

The Oldsmobile’s only passenger, a 23-year-old female from Osceola, was transported via ambulance to Nevada Regional Medical Center. Her injuries were classified as moderate.

The condition of the driver, a 30-year-old female from Osceola, remains unreported.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Passenger Injuries in Nevada

Whenever a passenger is injured during a Missouri car accident, they might not know where to turn for help and the best way to seek financial compensation for their injuries. Regarding car accidents, Missouri adheres to fault-based/comparative negligence insurance regulations. A vehicle’s passenger, however, is not impacted by comparative negligence because they can’t be held accountable for any part of the collision. When it comes to which driver’s insurance policy an injured passenger should look to for monetary compensation, car insurance laws can be very complex.

When victims are injured in accidents resulting from the negligence of other motorists, it is important that they seek legal guidance as soon as possible. Victims may be entitled to compensation that can help cover the costs of care and other expenses moving forward. A responsive and effective car accident attorney in Missouri can help to explain your legal rights as a victim of an accident.
