Grand Rapids, MI (June 1, 2023) – There were several confirmed injuries resulting from a car crash in Grand Rapids on Friday morning, May 26, and the victims included two children. 

The crash occurred at around 9:30 at the corner of Curwood Avenue and Langley Street. The driver of the at-fault vehicle had reportedly been involved in a separate crash at 44th Street and Kalamazoo Avenue when it fled and caused another collision. 

It was reported that an 8-year-old and a 6-year-old were pinned inside the at-fault vehicle, and there were powerlines on top of the car. Both children were hospitalized for treatment. 

The driver was hospitalized and then later apprehended under suspicion of driving under the influence.

It is impossible to know when and where an automobile accident will happen. They can happen when you are running errands, traveling to work, or even driving to the airport to go on vacation. In an instant, you are now dealing with serious injuries and other damages that you had not planned for. Sadly, the accident itself merely signals the start of a drawn-out rehabilitation process. If you are injured in a car accident, you might have to deal with pain and healing for weeks, months, or perhaps a lifetime.

When a serious collision was caused by the negligence of another motorist, dealing with the aftermath is much more difficult. You should speak with a personal injury lawyer who has handled car accidents to protect your legal rights. Working with an attorney is often the only way to guarantee that you can get full and appropriate compensation for your injuries.

You need a Grand Rapids automobile accident lawyer to assist you with your personal injury claim. It may seem easy to take on the insurance company by yourself, but this is seldom the case, and a large insurer can take advantage of your inexperience in handling injury cases. With the assistance of an experienced lawyer, your chances of successfully recovering full compensation will be much higher. The lawyers at Christopher Trainor & Associates will do everything possible to ensure that you receive the financial support and medical care necessary for a full recovery.
