A man has sadly lost his life as the result of a tragic motor vehicle crash. In addition, two other individuals have suffered injuries in the incident. The car accident, which involved three motor vehicles, occurred on a recent Monday.
Events leading up to the crash
The unfortunate car wreck in New York took place along Route 9G. According to authorities, a 29-year-old man was driving his car north on the street. Then, all of a sudden, he reportedly breached the road’s double yellow line.
Police said the man then hit a southbound sport utility vehicle. Afterward, a pickup truck rear-ended the sport utility vehicle. The 29-year-old man was pronounced deceased at the crash scene. Meanwhile, the drivers of the two other motor vehicles suffered injuries and were taken to the hospital, where their injuries were deemed non-life-threatening. Authorities continued to investigate the collision.
How an attorney can help after these tragic situations
The two injured accident victims may opt to file personal injury claims, seeking the reimbursement of damages sustained in the collision. Even though the man who allegedly caused their injuries ended up passing away in the wreck, the injured parties may still sue his estate as well as anyone else with an ownership interest in the car he was operating at the time of the accident. Only if they can establish liability through a showing of negligence will a New York judge decide their claims. Successfully litigated claims might result in monetary damages to cover their medical bills and other losses stemming from the accident.
