I-295 DC car crash declared mass casualty event

In what officials are declaring a mass casualty event, ten people were sent to the hospital early one recent morning. A major car crash involving four vehicles occurred on I-295 in Northeast DC. The accident occurred just before 6 a.m., according to tweets from DC Fire and EMS.

Although officials were not sure at first how many victims were involved, ten people were injured to varying degrees in the multiple vehicle crash. It was reported that at least one of the patients was suffering from potentially life-threatening injuries, and another of those involved had what were deemed by officials to be "serious" injuries. All were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Washington, DC Fire and EMS reported that one vehicle was atop another. After posting a video online of the patients being loaded into an ambulance, the scene was later declared clear just before 7 a.m. So far, no cause of the accident has been reported, though officials will doubtless be investigating.

In a car crash such as this one where there are serious, potentially life-threatening injuries, victims may choose to file a personal injury suit if fault can be established. Whether drugs or alcohol are contributing factors in car accidents or it is simply a case of negligence, injured parties often seek legal counsel. An attorney with experience in personal injury lawsuits can offer guidance to victims and help them seek monetary compensation for pain and suffering. Awarded damages in successfully arbitrated cases can be used towards medical expenses, lost wages and other documented financial losses.
