Car accidents change lives of injured Good Samaritans

Two New York men are recuperating in the Erie County Hospital after they were both struck by a car several weeks ago. They were members of a crew working on the Kingston Expressway when they unexpectedly became involved in the aftermath of two car accidents. One of the crashes put them both in the hospital.

Reportedly, at around 2 a.m. on a Thursday, the workers had just completed the process of positioning the orange safety cones when a loud noise alerted them to a wrong-way driver who had crashed into another car. The two workers rushed to help get injured victims out of their vehicles, which had erupted into flames. Reportedly, one driver was a 28-year-old Buffalo attorney who did not survive the crash.

While the Good Samaritans were scrambling around to extinguish the flames and look for more victims, another vehicle barrelled into the scene despite the many bright lights, traffic cones and more safety measures that made the accident area impossible to miss. This vehicle struck both the workers, causing severe injuries. One of them suffered facial lacerations, injuries to both legs and shoulders along with injuries to his hip, spleen and kidney. The other worker's forearm and ankle were fractured, and he suffered a collapsed lung and torn ligaments.

The car accidents that changed the lives of these two workers were both preventable. However, the injuries they suffered may prevent one or both of them from ever working again. Their medical expenses along with lost wages will undoubtedly make their lives difficult. Fortunately, they will both be entitled to pursue financial relief through the New York civil justice system, and they can seek the support and guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney to navigate such lawsuits for them.
