Possible road rage leads to motor vehicle accidents in New York

Most people carry out their daily activities without a second thought regarding whether they will be injured that day. However, accidents of any type often occur out of the blue, and many people could suffer serious injuries as a result. Motor vehicle accidents in particular can easily lead to multiple individuals suffering harm in a single event.

It was recently reported that this type of scenario occurred in New York. Apparently, a car and an SUV crashed into each other, which caused the SUV to hit a bicyclist. The car kept traveling and hit a third vehicle before coming to a stop on a sidewalk. Authorities believe that road rage may have contributed to the incident, but additional information on this aspect of the accident was not provided.

Reports did state that at least six individuals were injured as a result of the incident. The extent of those injuries were not detailed in the report, but more information may be available later, as the story was still considered to be developing. It was also noted that the driver of the car involved had been detained by police for questioning.

If the individuals involved in this New York incident were seriously injured, they may wish to consider their legal options. Personal injury claims could allow them to seek monetary restitution for financial losses, pain and suffering, and other damages permitted under state law. These parties -- and others injured in motor vehicle accidents -- may wish to obtain more information on this legal option as they work to decide how to handle their personal predicaments.
