How Can We Help?

Fatal accident may leave New York family with hardships

Dealing with the loss of a loved one can is challenging under any circumstances. Ensuring that funeral arrangements and other affairs are in order can be stressful, time consuming and expensive. When a car accident results in the sudden death of a loved one, the family of the victim may face these difficulties and many others. 

One family may be experiencing such hardships after a recent crash in New York. Reports stated that the incident involved two vehicles and occurred at an intersection. A car was traveling north with three occupants when the vehicle was hit in the side by an SUV traveling west. It is suspected that one vehicle ran a red light, but it was unclear which driver may have done so.

The incident resulted in a passenger in the car going into cardiac arrest. She was taken to an area hospital but died soon after. Both drivers and a second passenger in the car all suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening, and they were all taken from the scene for treatment. The incident was still under investigation at the time of the report. 

The family of the woman killed in this New York accident undoubtedly face immense grief. In addition to handling the necessary tasks to lay their loved one to rest, they may also wish to consider options for seeking compensation against the driver considered at fault. A wrongful death claim could help them with such an endeavor if they are interested in pursuing this course of action. Additionally, individuals seriously injured in the crash may also wish to look into their options for personal injury claims.
