Auto accidents in New York are all too common. We hear about them all of the time on news outlets. But we always think this is never going to happen to me. The reality is that it CAN happen to you. And knowing where to turn when it does happen is very important. Our experienced New York Attorney’s are here to assist you after you have been in an auto accident to help get you the compensation you deserve. Below you will read about two different auto accidents that recently took place in New York:
1. A long Island man was attempting to pull into his driveway after a night of drinking but instead ran straight through the front door of his neighbor’s house. The man crashed into the kitchen, only 23 feet from where the residents were sleeping.
The couple will have to stay in a hotel room until the insurance adjusters and building inspectors give them the okay to return home. The owner was trying to figure out if insurance would cover the immense damages of the accident. The 20 year old driver had apparently posted pictures to Facebook showing him out with his friends drinking and paying beer pong.
2. An 14 year old boy was the victim of a hit and run accident in Brooklyn. The boy was walking to an after school program when he was hit by a Maroon Chevy Impala as he crossed the street. He was rushed to the hospital where he passed away. The driver, an elderly woman of 78, fled the scene after hitting the boy, but was stopped shortly after.
She had apparently gotten out of her car and looked at where the young man was on the street before driving off. Her attorney said that she had not seen anything when she got out of the car. She was aware that she struck something, but when she got out and did not see anything, she thought it was a ball said her attorney.
