Was your child injured playing school sports?


Car accidents of some kind are practically inevitable for residents of New York City. We have so many people here, always seemingly in a hurry to get places, that it’s a wonder there aren’t more motor vehicle accidents than there already are. Of course, the relative frequency of accidents doesn’t mean that the ones that do take place are to be taken lightly.

Recently in Queens, a man who was selling water on the sidewalk on a hot day was hit by an out-of-control vehicle. It isn’t clear what led the 78-year-old driver of the sedan to lose control of his vehicle, but the results were disastrous. The water vendor was killed. In a tragic coincidence, the deceased man’s brother said that their mother was fatally struck by a car a few years ago. The man said he and his family had been making plans to visit her grave at the cemetery, but now they are faced with having to say goodbye to another family member.

Even if someone is not criminally charged in a fatal automobile accident, such as the driver in this case, a driver who is responsible for taking the life of a pedestrian is not completely off the hook. It is still possible for a negligent driver to be held financially responsible for the wrongful death of a pedestrian. Surviving family members may wish to consult with an experienced motor vehicle accident attorney in New York to help them determine what kind of compensation might be available to them.
