How an attorney can help
The New York police’s investigation might reveal that the accident occurred due to a driver’s negligence. For instance, one of the drivers may have been texting while driving or speeding at the time of the crash. In this situation, all other injured parties have the right to file personal injury claims against the allegedly at-fault driver, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages sustained in the crash. Liability has to be established, based upon a showing of negligence, before a judge will adjudicate their claims for financial damages. If the plaintiffs are successful in court, they might be awarded damages to cover their medical bills and other losses resulting from the wreck, such as the loss of wages due to having to miss work to recover from the crash.
