Deadly Sanitation Truck Accident in Brooklyn Results in $15 Million Lawsuit

A man was killed late las year in a deadly sanitation truck accident in New York City. Now his surviving family members have filed a lawsuit against NYC Department of Sanitization for compensation for their loss. As tragic as this case is, it's unlikely that they'll get the total amount. In such cases the city will try to settle out of court. Like insurance companies, the City will look to pay much less on the claim depending on how early the negotiations commence. This allows the City to save legal fees; pay less and the distraught family members get at least some of the compensation they deserve for medical expenses, funeral costs, emotional trauma, and lost financial support much earlier than would have if they went through a long, drawn out lawsuit.

Young Boy Killed in Fatal Automobile Accident in the Bronx

An 8-year-old boy was tragically killed after being struck by a minivan earlier this month. The fatal car accident in the Bronx happened as the boy was being driven home from school around 6PM in the evening. Witnesses heard the driver tell the boy to stay right where he was as she parked the vehicle. Somehow the driver "lost control" of the minivan and it raced forward, striking the child as it jumped the curb. Police suspect the driver inexperience could have played a role in the boy's death as the woman behind the wheel had just recently earned her driver's license. However, reports state that there were several other children in the van at the time of this terrible deadly car accident in the Bronx, so distraction could have also been a factor.While the parents have every right to bring a lawsuit for the child's death caused by this car accident in New York City, it is not without its share of problems. Firstly, pain and suffering is measured by the seriousness of the injuries and the length of time the person suffers after the accident. Since the child in this case only lived a short time after the accident, the insurance company will take the position that the case has little value because of the short period of pain and suffering. In addition, they will argue that since the child did not work, there is no lost income suffered by the family. This is the law and the insurance company knows very well how to hide behind it.In order to recover the maximum monetary compensation for the child's death and emotional pain suffered by the family, you need to seek out an experienced and qualified car accident attorney in New York City who knows how to argue these kinds of cases. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Nussin S. Fogel are experienced in prosecuting these cases both in a court of law and to the insurance company.
