Fatal Car Accidents Can Change Lives In New York

On behalf of Licatesi Law Group, LLP posted in motor vehicle accidents on Thursday, March 29, 2018.

The sudden loss of a loved one can leave many surviving family members scrambling. They may wonder what to tell the deceased’s children, how they will handle resulting financial issues and how they will contend with the grief such an event causes. Unfortunately, car accidents can easily lead to this type of scenario for numerous people.

It was recently reported that a New York father died as the result of a crash. Apparently, the man had been out with friends celebrating his birthday when he was hit by a vehicle. The man and a friend had been standing behind a parked vehicle when the moving car hit the men and then the parked vehicle. As a result, the 27-year-old man became trapped between the two vehicles.

The driver of the moving car did not remain at the scene. The incident caused the man to suffer fatal injuries. The other person hit by the car was taken from the scene to an area hospital and was considered to be in stable condition. Family members of the deceased victim expressed their grief and stated that they had not yet told his 3-year-old daughter the tragic news.

Though the driver of the other vehicle had not been apprehended at the time of the report, the man’s family may still want to consider their legal options. Wrongful death claims can often help surviving family members of individuals killed in car accidents pursue compensation for resulting damages. New York residents who have faced similar situations may wish to consider whether this type of action could suit their needs.
