Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents Can Leave Families With Hardships

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

Families can face many difficulties when a loved one is killed unexpectedly. Unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents commonly have fatal outcomes, and numerous families are left dealing with their grief and other challenges. The details of the fatal event could play an important role in how a family chooses to move forward, and if another person is considered at fault for the crash, civil claims could be brought against that individual.

The family of a New York resident may be hoping to find the best way to handle their situation after a recent fatal crash. Reports stated that the individual was a passenger in a vehicle when the driver lost control of the car. Apparently, the driver made a turn too quickly and went off the road before crashing into the garage of a house.

The incident resulted in one passenger suffering fatal injuries. The driver and two other passengers in the car were also injured, but those injuries were not considered life-threatening. They were taken to an area hospital for treatment. A family was inside the home at the time of the incident, but they did not suffer any injuries.

Fatal motor vehicle accidents are common, but their impacts are always devastating. The family of the individual killed in this crash may feel at a loss that something so heart-wrenching could happen to them. Because they will likely have to deal with funeral expenses and other costs in the aftermath of this crash, they may wish to consider seeking compensation from the driver deemed at fault for damages permitted under New York law.
