New York personal injury: 4 injured in auto-pedestrian accident

Authorities in New York are investigating an auto-pedestrian accident that left four people injured. This incident occurred in Uniondale on Thursday, Feb. 2. When such an incident results in a victim suffering a personal injury, he or she may have legal recourse.

This incident occurred mid-afternoon near Northgate Drive and Jerusalem Avenue. The driver of a car -- an elderly woman -- is said to have lost control of her vehicle and hit three people who were at a bus stop. The car then struck a utility pole and finally came to a stop. All three victims were hurt, one critically, and were taken to a hospital for treatment. Their current conditions are unknown.

The driver responsible for this crash was also injured and required medical care. At this time, it is unclear if she will face any criminal charges for the incident. The circumstances surrounding the event are still being reviewed.

In New York, victims of auto-pedestrian accidents have the right to seek compensation for their losses. This is something that can be done by filing personal injury claims in civil court. Pursing civil actions is not always an easy or straightforward affair. Such cases require detailed investigation into the incidents in question and proof of negligence. In this case, the victims who are successfully able to establish negligence to the court's satisfaction may be granted monetary judgments for their losses -- such as medical expenses, rehabilitation fees, lost wages and various other damages that are economic and non-economic in nature.
