Six Injured in Manhattan Car Accident

Leave a reply

Car accidentSix people were injured, at least one of them critically, in a car accident when a vehicle overturned on the Harlem River Drive. According to a news report on DNAinfo.com, the major injury car accident caused one person to be ejected onto the highway. That victim was transported to Harlem Hospital. Others sustained relatively minor injuries, officials said. An investigation is ongoing.

Car accidents typically can result in severe injuries or even fatalities. In any car accident case, a thorough investigation is required in order to determine who was at fault and who should be held liable. In some cases, it may be a negligent driver. In other cases, the fault may lie with a defective auto, a part malfunction or a dangerous roadway. It can take accident reconstruction experts to thoroughly analyze the vehicles involved and the evidence at the scene in order to determine precisely what occurred and why.

Injured victims can hold the at-fault party financially responsible for the injuries, damages and losses they have sustained. Some examples of the damages that can be recovered in a personal injury case include medical expenses, lost wages, cost of hospitalization, rehabilitation and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, and emotional distress, and damages for permanent injuries.

Car accident victims often have to deal with insurance companies in the aftermath of a car crash. This is likely one of the most difficult aspects of a car accident case. Insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations that will go to great lengths to minimize the value of the claim. They do not have a stake in your situation. Often all they care about is to ensure that they are making money.
