Most people assume they are safe from involvement in any type of car accident while in a store or other place of business. For customers of a New York store, being inside the establishment and off the streets was not enough to shield them from becoming embroiled in a car crash. While the customers were shopping, a vehicle came crashing through the Flushing business.
The fatal crash between a car and a commuter train drew national attention and also backlash against one of the victims -- the woman whose car was hit by the train. That woman's family is now pursuing legal action against the railroad company. The family contends it was the MTA, and not their family member, who was to blame for the fatal New York car accident that took her life and the lives of several train passengers.
A rental truck, car and a school bus were all recently involved in an accident, creating a hectic scene on the streets of New York. The car accident led to many being transported to hospitals as police worked to reconstruct the multi-vehicle car accident. According to reports, the tragic scene unfolded due to the actions taken by a rental truck driver.
Being aware of the actions and driving patterns of others is one way to stay safe on the road. However, when other drivers are acting in a reckless or illegal manner, no amount of vigilance will keep other drivers and passengers safe. A recent fatal accident in New York made news as one driver now faces serious criminal consequences for his apparent role in the crash.
Walking along the roadway can be inherently dangerous, particularly at night. Both drivers and pedestrians must be alert for any potential problems and be aware of their surroundings at all time. If an accident occurs, a pedestrian can be critically injured or worse as he or she is no match for a moving vehicle. A man recently visiting family New York became the victim of fatal accident after he was hit by a passing car.
Whenever people are on the city sidewalks and shopping this time of year, there may be a great deal of activity swirling around. When a car careens onto that sidewalk during the busy holiday shopping season, people may be injured or worse. A recent car accident in New York left shoppers injured and resulted in the driver being arrested for a number of charges.
Pedestrians have to share the road with vehicles everywhere. There are very clear rules and laws pertaining to how cars are to look for and react to pedestrians on the road. Despite those rules of the road, every year, pedestrians become involved in accidents. When a pedestrian is hit and killed on a New York roadway, there may be cause for a family or loved one to pursue a wrongful death suit against a driver who took the life of that pedestrian.
Whenever a car accident occurs, it can be difficult for people to think straight, much less take steps to secure a fair and just settlement for any damages or injuries. If a car accident victim knows the proper steps and what kind of legal help to secure after an accident, the chances of a fair settlement may be increased. New York accident victims can take certain steps on their own, before securing legal help, to increase the likelihood of a fair settlement overall.
Walking across the road or a busy street anywhere can be a potentially dangerous endeavor. Whenever a person ventures onto the streets of New York City, they may be putting themselves at risk of being involved in a car accident. One man recently ended up with critical injuries after he was struck by a car crossing the street in the city.
Car crashes are an unfortunate part of modern life. Sometimes, there is no discernible cause for them. It may appear to be the result of a set of circumstances that, regrettably, added up to a car accident. However, there are plenty of instances in which a person clearly acted negligently to generate the collision. This is what the police have accused a young driver of here in New York, after they say his reckless driving caused an accident that resulted in the deaths of two people?
