Iowa accident results in dual hospitalizations

On Nov. 7, a man was turning his van onto Hamilton Boulevard at the Outer Drive intersection in Sioux City when he ran into another vehicle. After the initial 8:30 a.m. collision, the van continued traveling forward, running into other vehicles and causing a total of three more car accidents in the process.

The final impact was so strong that it pushed an Avalanche across a center median. This vehicle crossed both oncoming traffic lanes before smashing into a light post, and the van ended up wrecking in a copse of trees near Hamilton's 3100 block.

Police said that the van belonged to an injury rehabilitation facility and that the driver, a patient, may not have had permission to operate the vehicle. He was charged with driving in violation of a license suspension and leaving the scene of the accident. One of the struck motorists claims that he was moving in a reckless fashion prior to the first collision.

Vehicle accidents can sidetrack people's personal goals and their livelihoods for years. Physical rehabilitation may take much longer than victims initially expect, and the medical treatments and procedures covered by insurers might fall short of their actual needs. Permanent assistive devices like braces and mobility ramps for vehicles or homes may not be covered, potentially leaving victims with high out-of-pocket costs following their collisions. These individuals' attempts to seek financial restitution could also be delayed or totally blocked by motorists who don't think they're liable or court officials who don't feel that the evidence supports a judgement award. Attorneys may be able to assist victims by advising them on how to deal with insurers in a timely fashion or seek civil lawsuits.
