Two New York men have sadly suffered injuries in an unfortunate motor vehicle crash. The accident, which involved two automobiles, occurred during the evening hours. Sometimes, these types of crashes occur due to a driver’s carelessness, in which case the at-fault driver may be held liable for any injuries resulting from the collision.
How the accident occurred
The recent crash took place at around 7:30 p.m. According to police, a car was carrying two men along an avenue, but the driver suddenly lost control of the car. The car then struck a sport utility vehicle before colliding with a power pole near a car collision shop.
The two men traveling in the car, who are between 20 and 29 years old, suffered severe injuries in the crash, including head trauma. They were both transported to medical centers where their conditions were deemed critical. Meanwhile, the driver of the sport utility vehicle refused medical care while at the accident scene. Authorities continue to investigate the cause of the crash.
Potential legal recourse following the crash
The car passenger who was injured in the automobile crash may have the right to file a personal injury claim against the car’s driver, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages. If he can establish liability before the New York civil court hearing the case, a judge will decide his claims for damages. This may result in a financial damage award to cover his medical bills and even the loss of wages if his injuries prevented him from returning to work for an extended period of time.
