Legal Action May Be Prudent After New York Accidents And Injuries

On behalf of Licatesi Law Group, LLP posted in personal injury on Thursday, January 26, 2017.

Drifting into other lanes is a potential hazard that all drivers need to work to avoid. However, numerous accidents and injuries are caused by vehicles crossing into the opposite lanes of travel. Crashes caused by this are often serious, and the individuals involved could suffer considerable harm as a result.

It was recently reported that a two-car accident took place in New York that resulted from a driver failing to remain in the correct lane. Details on the accident were few, but reports stated that one vehicle crossed over the dividing line and crashed into a car in the opposite lane. There were at least six individuals involved in the crash, and all of those parties suffered injuries as a result.

It was reported that the front-seat passenger in one of the vehicles suffered fatal injuries. She was reported as being 18 years old. A 19-year-old man suffered injuries that left him in guarded condition, and four other individuals were also injured. Their injuries were not considered life threatening. It was unclear which driver may have been at fault for the accident, but the incident was still under investigation.

When dealing with accidents and injuries, information relating to the event could play a major role in any legal proceedings that may result. Therefore, once authorities determine which driver may have been at fault, the seriously injured parties and the family of the deceased victim may wish to determine whether filing personal injury and wrongful death claims could be warranted. These claims could allow interested parties to work toward gaining compensation for damages permissible under New York law.
