In West Virginia, we all know the potentially devastating effects of car accidents. Drivers and passengers alike often sustain serious injuries that sometimes turn life-threatening. In emergency situations like this, it is important that car accident victims get immediate medical attention, which is part of the reason why the individuals involved in a serious crash are required by law to stay at the scene until authorities arrive.
