Several people injured in taxi car accidents

Two taxis crashed in the state recently and left several people, including a toddler, with injuries. People are injured and killed every day on the streets of New York because of car accidents, and this one involved two taxi cabs. One of those cabs ended up in a restaurant where families were dining.

According to police, one yellow cab was moving west of 85th Street and slammed into another cab that was moving south on 2nd Avenue. The second cab was pushed onto the sidewalk and crashed into Wahlburgers restaurant. A mother, along with her 1-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter, were dining in that establishment at the time. They had to be taken to a nearby hospital for their injuries.

One customer of the restaurant stated that the crash sounded like a bomb had gone off and that it was loud. She noticed that the leg of the 1-year-old had been wrapped before he was taken to the hospital. The boy's leg was broken, but he will be okay. Both of the drivers are blaming each other, but both toxicology reports came back clean.

When people are injured in New York car accidents, the medical bills, emotional trauma and time lost from work can be overwhelming. Anyone who has been through such an ordeal may choose to consult with a personal injury lawyer. This type of attorney can help the victim determine how he or she wishes to pursue damages in a personal injury lawsuit, which can help them to recover damages from their ordeal.
