Car accidents: 6-car crash in New York City kills 1, injures 2

Nationwide, too many lives are lost in preventable crashes during the holidays. Many fatal car accidents that occur in New York City lead to criminal charges. One such an accident happened on a recent Saturday morning, only a block away from the World Trade Center.

According to a police report, multiple cars were wrecked on a major roadway that runs along the Hudson River. A 37-year-old driver allegedly failed to maintain control of his vehicle and struck another car. The impact caused that car to flip over before it caught fire. The female driver of that car did not survive the accident.

This was not the end because police say two more people were injured when the driver continued driving and hit two other vehicles before coming to a halt after smashing into two cars that were parked. The driver attempted to flee the crash scene, but law enforcement apprehended him. He now faces a manslaughter charge and a charge for leaving an accident scene.

Regardless of what happens with criminal charges after New York car accidents, injured victims and the surviving family members of deceased crash victims can pursue financial relief through the civil court system. Personal injury and wrongful death are complicated fields of the law, and navigating civil lawsuits might be challenging. For that reason, the services of an attorney who is experienced in those fields can be invaluable. A lawyer can assist with the gathering of evidence to establish negligence and provide support and guidance throughout the pursuit of economic and noneconomic damage recovery.
