DWI suspected in New York fatal accident

Though car accidents happen every day, they can impact each person differently. From minor bruises to losing loved ones, the outcomes can vary dramatically. If driving under the influence caused an accident that led to someone's death, that driver could face serious criminal consequences. Additionally, the family of the victim could have legal options for pursuing a civil claim.

One family in New York and two other individuals may be considering their legal options after a recent accident. Reports stated that a speeding driver was traveling north on Bronx Boulevard in an SUV when he struck a car that was attempting to make a left turn onto the same street. This crash caused the car to collide with a southbound vehicle, and the SUV struck two parked vehicles.

The incident resulted in the driver of the car suffering fatal injuries. He was reported as being 31 years old. A passenger in the car and the driver of the southbound vehicle both suffered injuries and were taken to an area hospital for treatment. The driver of the SUV was taken into custody and is facing charges for DWI and other allegations.

The family of the man killed in this New York accident and the two individuals injured may wonder whether they can seek justice against the driver considered at fault. In this case, the victim's family may have the ability to file a wrongful death claim against the driver of the SUV, and the injured parties may have cause to pursue personal injury claims of their own. Information on these civil legal options may help them determine whether they would like to move forward with such action.
