Tragedy Can Stem From New York Motor Vehicle Accidents

On behalf of Licatesi Law Group, LLP posted in motor vehicle accidents on Tuesday, February 14, 2017.

In many cases, car accidents can lead to the serious injury or deaths of young children. In such incidents, it is often left to the parents of the victims of these motor vehicle accidents to pursue justice for their children. For those interested in taking such action, information on legal options may prove useful to them.

This type of information may be able to help one family in New York. Reports stated that a car crash took place involving an SUV driven by a 36-year-old man and a car carrying two adults and two children. The driver of the SUV failed to stop at a stop sign, and as a result, his vehicle crashed into the family’s car. An 8-year-old child was thrown from the car in the incident.

That child suffered severe injuries, and despite CPR attempts, he was declared dead at an area hospital. A 9-year-old child also in that vehicle was considered to be in serious condition, and the deceased child’s 35-year-old mother also suffered serious injuries. The drivers of both vehicles suffered only minor injuries in the crash.

All fatal motor vehicle accidents are tragic events that can leave families reeling. This New York incident may be considered even more devastating due to the death of the young boy. The outcomes of this incident could warrant civil claims as the deceased child’s family could seek a wrongful death claim, and personal injury claims could also result due to the serious injuries suffered by the mother and other child.
