Pittsburgh, PA (December 4, 2018) In the early evening of December 1st, an automobile accident involving two vehicles took place at the intersection of Bigelow Boulevard and Blessing Street.

Another injured victim went to the hospital by private transportation. The police are currently investigating the accident.
Although it’s unfortunate that three people suffered injuries, we’re happy to hear that none of their injuries were life-threatening. We hope they all recover quickly from their injuries and return to their normal daily lives.
Thousands of people suffer injuries after being involved in car accidents every year. Some accidents are more severe than others, but even a minor fender bender can cause serious damages and injuries. There are four types of injuries people suffer: minor, severe, catastrophic, and fatal. People suffering from minor or severe injuries can heal over time with proper treatment and eventually return to regular physical activities. People suffering from catastrophic injuries never heal completely because their bodies are damaged permanently. Examples of catastrophic injuries include burns, amputations, spinal cord injuries, and brain damage. It’s essential that anyone suffering from personal injuries hire a personal injury lawyer to help them obtain compensation for medical expenses, loss of wages, and more. Since three people suffered injuries in this collision, it’s likely that personal injury lawsuits will be filed.
