Recent New York car accident kills 1, injures 2

A vehicular collision has the potential to have a major impact on the financial, emotional and physical well-being of a victim and his or her family. In addition to injuries suffered, car accidents can leave a victim with medical bills, lost wages from missed work as well as other types of emotional and mental trauma. The aftermath of a serious accident is overwhelming, but a victim in New York does not have to face all of this alone.

One individual was killed while at least one other is currently in critical condition after being involved in a three-car crash that occurred recently, the New York State Police said. The accident occurred in Cicero on a recent Monday morning in early October. The accident occurred around 6:30 a.m.

A vehicle was headed north on a road when, for reasons currently unclear, it apparently crossed over the road's median and directly into the path of oncoming southbound traffic, the New York State police said. The vehicle was struck by a vehicle in the southbound lane and was then struck by another vehicle, according to police. The driver of the vehicle was rushed to a local hospital for head injuries he had suffered, while his passenger was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The driver of the second vehicle was taken to a nearby hospital for back injuries, while the driver of the third vehicle was uninjured.

After a car accident occurs in New York, it is typical for any individual involved to have nagging questions about what happens next. If an experienced New York personal injury attorney is consulted, he or she can answer most of these pressing questions while helping a client to understand the available options. If legal representation is retained, the attorney will then examine every aspect of the accident so that the strongest case possible may be built while helping the victim navigate the often challenging adjustment to the physical harm and losses he or she may have suffered.
