Golden City, MO (November 3, 2021) – One man was left with injuries following a traffic-related incident in Barton County, according to local news sources. At around 7:30 p.m., on November 2, emergency crews received the request for assistance on-site at a crash on US Highway 160.
Reports from local authorities indicate that a collision between a 1994 Chevrolet 1500 and a 2004 Arctic Cat ATV was involved in a collision on US Highway 160 at the intersection of Church Street.
The impact of the crash caused the occupants of the ATV to be ejected from their vehicle. A passenger on the ATV, 20-year-old Michael Wilken, sustained injuries in the accident. He was transported to Cox Hospital for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Michael Wilken at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
People who are injured in accidents often deal with an array of challenges moving forward. Not only are most victims left to deal with pain and suffering, but the financial consequences of accidents can be crippling for both victims and their families. People involved in collisions are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment and vehicle repairs while going without wages from work. Even though many injured victims have to take some time off work to recover from their injuries, numerous victims are left permanently disabled and unable to return to work after.
Not being able to work while being overwhelmed with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills not only impacts victims but their families as well. It does not seem right that victims who are injured in accidents as a result of the actions of others are forced to spend substantial amounts of money on treatment. Rather than moving forward after an accident alone, victims should consult with a responsive law firm that can help educate them with regards to legal options available and help them to exercise their rights and collect the compensation they need and deserve.
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 Golden City can help to explain your legal rights as a victim of an accident.
