Injuries stem from car accident after vehicle hits restaurant

Most people go out to restaurants in hopes of enjoying a nice meal with friends or family. Once in the establishment, they likely do not give much thought to the potential of being involved in a car accident. However, restaurant goers could easily suffer serious injuries if a vehicle crashes into the building.

It was recently reported that this type of incident occurred in New York. Apparently, a driver was attempting to leave a roadside parking space when the car backed into a vehicle that was stopped in the travel lane and continued down the road in reverse. The car then crashed into an Italian restaurant while still traveling backward. The incident took place at approximately 8 p.m., and it was unclear what may have contributed to the crash.

Multiple individuals suffered injuries in the event. The report stated that at least three people were considered to be in critical condition. It was unclear whether the driver of the car suffered injuries in the crash. The driver of the other vehicle that was hit gave a statement to authorities before being transported for medical attention. Details on injuries she may have suffered were not given.

The circumstances surrounding a car accident can sometimes seem unbelievable, but for the people who suffer serious injuries, the event is all too real. When individuals in New York suffer considerable harm due to the actions of another driver, they may have reason to seek compensation for the damages suffered. Information on personal injury claims may help interested individuals gain more insight into this legal option.
