Two men have been injured in an unfortunate motor vehicle collision in New York. The accident happened during rush hour on a recent Thursday morning. Sometimes these types of car crashes occur due to driver negligence, in which case the individual who is believed to have caused the crash may be held liable for any injuries resulting from it.
Events leading up to the collision
The recent incident occurred at a little before 8 a.m. According to police, a 44-year-old man was driving along Millersport Highway. All of a sudden, his motor vehicle crashed into a car that another 26-year-old man was driving.
Both men suffered injuries in the crash and were therefore transported to a medical center. Authorities reported that one of the men suffered leg injuries, whereas the other one suffered back and head injuries. It was not immediately known if the weather conditions at the time of the crash contributed to the collision. Police continued to investigate the cause of the wreck.
Where to turn for help and support as a victim
If New York police determine that one of the men caused the accident due to negligent driving, such as speeding, the other man may choose to file a personal injury claim against him, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages. He must establish liability before the civil court hearing the case before a judge will adjudicate his claim for damages. If he is successful in court, he may be awarded financial damages to cover his hospital expenses and even the loss of wages if his injuries prevented him from returning to work for a time.
