A multi-car accident in Hughesville at Siesta Fields Place and Maryland Route 231 on Tuesday left four drivers injured. Three of the injured had to be flown to hospitals because the extent of their injuries were so serious.
Robert Charles Hall Jr. was driving his 2005 Dodge truck East on Rt. 231 when he started passing in a no passing zone. As he tried to get back in the right lane, his truck hit a 2002 Lexus that was being driven by Elvis Michael Ward.
Hall’s truck spun out of control and into the westbound lanes, where his car was hit by a 2004 Mazda Tribute driven by Clara Diane Gilley. William Joseph Johnson, in his 1999 Chevrolet Tracker, then rear ended Gilley’s Tribute.
Halls’ vehicle, however, kept going down the westbound lane, where it hit a 2003 BMW X3 being driven by Joseph Leslie Hardin. Hall’s truck caught on fire.
Hall, Gilley, and Johnson were all incapacitated because of the crash, and they were flown via helicopter to P.G. General Hospital. Ward sustained minor injuries and was treated at Civista. Hardin was not injured.
Maryland State Police say that driver error and speeding were likely factors in the multi-car crash.
If you have been seriously injured in a car accident that was caused by a negligent party, it is important that you call a personal injury lawyer immediately. You will very likely need help covering your medical bills, additional recovery costs, or lost wages. You also may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. We can take all of these factors into consideration when assessing your claim for you.
The negligent party’s insurance company will very likely try to negotiate a settlement directly with you, and the settlement amount may be much smaller than what you’d received if you had your own lawyer. If you hire us as your personal injury attorneys, we can deal with the insurance companies for you and make sure that we demand the maximum recovery that you need.
We can investigate your case, hire medical advisors and accident experts to testify for you, and if necessary—file a lawsuit and aggressively fight for you in court.
