Serious New York Accidents And Injuries May Warrant Legal Action

On behalf of Licatesi Law Group, LLP posted in personal injury on Tuesday, February 21, 2017.

Weather conditions often play a role in car crashes. If drivers do not properly accommodate for such conditions, accidents and injuries may result. The outcomes of serious accidents may lead to additional actions, such as injured parties filing civil claims against the drivers considered at fault. In many cases, successful claims could benefit the injured parties.

A recent crash that took place in New York may lead to personal injury claims. Reports stated that the wreck began when a driver traveling east lost control of his car. The vehicle traveled into the opposite lane and collided with another car. The first car continued moving and struck a third vehicle. A fourth car ended up in a ditch as the driver sought to avoid the crash.

The incident resulted in the driver of the first car suffering fatal injuries. A passenger in that vehicle suffered head and chest injuries, and she was considered to be in critical condition. The driver of the second car suffered a head injury, and the driver of the third vehicle suffered what were described as minor injuries. The snowy conditions of the roadway reportedly played a role in the incident.

Accidents and injuries can lead to many complications. Though the driver in this New York collision died as a result, seriously injured survivors could still file legal claims if they wish to do so. Filing personal injury claims against the estate of the deceased driver could allow them to pursue compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering and other damages permissible under state law.
