New York Car Accident Claims Lives Of Multiple Young People

On behalf of Licatesi Law Group, LLP posted in motor vehicle accidents on Friday, March 2, 2018.

The death of any family member can be a heart-wrenching experience. When parents lose children, the loss can have even greater impacts on their lives. Sadly, a car accident can easily — and often does — claim the lives of young people, and the surviving loved ones may not know where to turn for help after such a tragedy. While friends and other family may offer some comfort, individuals may also consider seeking justice.

Multiple families may be considering their legal options after a recent crash in New York. Reports stated that the incident took place at an intersection and involved an SUV and a car. There were three young adults in the car whose ages were given as 18, 19 and 20 years old. The 19-year-old woman was driving the car when it was hit by the SUV driven by a 30-year-old man.

The incident resulted in all three occupants of the other car suffering fatal injuries. The SUV driver left the scene of the incident but was later apprehended. Authorities believe that he was intoxicated at the time of the crash, and blood tests were being conducted at the time of the report to determine blood alcohol concentration levels.

The families of the individuals killed in the car accident are undoubtedly devastated by the sudden losses. It is likely that they will have options for seeking compensation from the driver of the SUV, and exploring information on wrongful death claims in New York may help them better understand such options. Successful claims could potentially allow them to obtain monetary restitution for allowable damages as well as some semblance of closure.
