Car crash claim for A90 accident which injured four

An accident in Dundee, Scotland, on the A90, which injured four people, might result in a car crash claim being made.

The incident occurred when the victims' vehicle was in a collision with another car and rolled down the highway's embankment, where it eventually came to rest.

The 39-year-old female driver sustained a back injury and was trapped in the vehicle for 40 minutes while a fire crew cut her out of the car using hydraulic equipment.

The driver's 17-year-old daughter and her 19-year-old boyfriend, who were both back-seat passengers, suffered only minor injuries.

However, the motorist's nine-year-old son, who was also reported as having been seated in the rear, suffered severe personal injury in the form of serious damage to his legs, and punctured lungs.

All four of the casualties were taken to Ninewells Hospital for medical treatment. The boy underwent surgery and is now in the facility's intensive care unit, but his older sister and her boyfriend have since been released from hospital.

Tayside Police has begun investigations into the road traffic accident and is calling for any witnesses of the collision to come forward with information which could help piece together the events leading up to the incident.

If another road user is found liable for the injuries to the driver and her three passengers, then the victims' may decide to take legal action in the form of a car crash claim for their pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
