A terrifying commercial truck accident in Queens left three people injured earlier this month. The crash happened just before 1PM on January 28th. The armored truck appears to have run a stop sign. The massive truck then smashed into a BMW at the intersection of 115th Avenue and 200th Street. The truck was traveling at such a high rate of speed that it actually flipped over onto its side before coming to a stop on top of the BMW.
Two people inside the truck and one individual inside the BMW were treated for minor injuries. One of the passengers inside the truck and the driver of the car were able to escape under their own power. Rescue crews had to use ladders to extricate the third victim from the truck.
There has yet to be any criminal charges filed in connection with this truck crash in Queens but some may be forthcoming pending the completion of an accident investigation by the NYPD. The whole crash was caught on tape.
That’s not only good news for police investigators it’s also good news for the victim inside the BMW. Video evidence of a truck crash in NYC is an amazingly powerful tool victims and their attorneys can use to present persuasive evidence when negotiating their case and if necessary, proving it at the time of trial.
In addition to the claim for personal injuries, which would include pain and suffering, any unpaid medical expenses and lost wages, both present and future, each injured party will be able to collect no-fault benefits from the insurance company for the car they occupied to pay for health related expenses and up to $2,000 a month in lost wages.
