Two people have died after what New York media are calling a “horrific” crash on Grand Central Parkway in Jamaica, Queens, early Saturday morning.
Although the incident is still fresh and more details of the car accident may later emerge, it seems that the driver of an eastbound Honda Civic lost control of his or her vehicle near Exit 18 around 3:50 a.m. Photographs of the vehicle taken after the incident show it sustained severe damage, which hints at the severity of the accident.
Two people were ejected from the vehicle. They were both pronounced dead at the scene. A third occupant of the vehicle was treated for minor injuries.
As we said earlier in this post, it is likely that more information will come to light once investigators finish their inquest into this undeniably tragic incident.
Keeping that in mind, some one-vehicle accidents are caused by irresponsibility or inattentiveness on the part of the driver. In those circumstances — which may or may not be present here — people who are hurt in the accident or the loved ones of those who are killed may have legal recourse.
Personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits are an opportunity for parties who believe they have been wronged to ask that the responsible party (or party they believe to be responsible) make the best recompense possible, given the scenario. Certainly, not every lawsuit succeeds, but when they do, the results can be a much-needed stroke of good fortune.
If you are or a loved one is ever unfortunate enough to be harmed in some way because of a car accident, it may be worth your while to explore your options.
