Pedestrian Accident in Brooklyn Leaves Several People Injured

A car crash in Flatbush left several people seriously injured earlier this month. Police reports show that three cars collided at an intersection near Farragut Road. The force of the collision drove at least one of the vehicles onto the sidewalk. At least four pedestrians were injured (two critically). The preliminary investigation showed that one of the drivers involved in this pedestrian accident in New York City was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated.

Regardless of the outcome of the criminal charges, this driver and the vehicle owner could be found liable for the victims' injuries as well. In addition, if any of the other vehicles involved contributed to the accident, they too can be held liable for the injuries sustained by the pedestrians and passengers of those vehicles.

An exceptional case like this requires much more extensive legal work and investigation. Because there were so many victims involved, it's unlikely that just one vehicle's insurance policy is enough to compensate all the injured parties.

Getting just compensation for your injuries from all the drivers and vehicle owners involved in an accident is not a simple matter. Firstly, it requires extensive investigation into the cause of the accident to determine the at fault parties. Just as important, it requires investigation into all the available insurance policies which would include not only the insurance policies of all the vehicles involved in the accident but also the insurance policies for the vehicles owned by the drivers in the event they were not driving their own vehicles at the time of the accident. There are also umbrella policies carried by individuals which provide additional insurance over and above the vehicle's insurance.

If you've been hurt by a careless or distracted driver while crossing the street or as a passenger in a car, learning about all of the compensation options available to you is critical so that you receive the compensation you deserve.
