Victims of car accidents must be compensated for serious injuries

Fatal accidents in New York City are sometimes tainted by an extra measure of horrific violence not seen elsewhere. That is especially true when a driver ignores the speed limit and traverses city streets at a high rate of speed or otherwise drives recklessly. Innocent victims injured in local car accidents are best served by consulting an experienced personal injury attorney who is deeply familiar with the claims and litigation procedures in the city.

A recent accident in Staten Island involved a deadly two-car crash that killed a 41-year-old male driver and sent a 68-year-old man to the hospital. The decedent was operating his vehicle southbound on Hylan Boulevard at an excessive rate of speed as he approached the intersection with Otis Avenue, according to police. The speeding vehicle lost control as it attempted to pass a slower moving car, police say.

The out-of-control car entered the northbound lanes of Hylan while its driver attempted a turn onto Otis Avenue, where the vehicle was struck in the passenger side by an oncoming SUV.  Twisted, deformed pieces of both vehicles were strewn across a long stretch of roadway, according to witnesses. One witness reported observing emergency responders trying to revive the decedent with chest compressions.

Other witnesses reported that the decedent lost control of his vehicle and was swerving on the highway while attempting to turn onto Otis Avenue. That is when he pulled in front of the other driver's path and was struck. The driver of the SUV was hospitalized in stable condition.

The circumstances indicate that the SUV operator could not have avoided the accident. He has a viable claim for personal injury damages against the estate of the decedent. Anyone suffering serious injury in New York City car accidents should obtain experienced personal injury counsel to assure that sufficient compensation is obtained and that all legal claims are pursued.
