There is no denying the fact that any car accident, regardless of how many vehicles are involved, could lead to serious injury or even death. That being said, when more than one vehicle is involved it is common for there to be multiple injuries.
Our New York readers are well aware of how dangerous the local roadways can be, and this story backs up that thought. According to officials, five people were injured when two cars collided in Brooklyn. As a result of the accident, both cars ended up in the front yard of a local home.
The car accident occurred at approximately 12:30 a.m. when a silver SUV and white Nissan sedan collided at the intersection of Bay Ridge Parkway and 14th Ave. As a result of the accident, five people were taken to Lutheran Hospital. According to authorities, the injured are in stable condition.
Immediately following the accident, police arrived to help the injured people while also investigating the scene. At this point, no details have been released regarding the cause of the accident or which party was at fault. What we do know is that this was a serious collision that injured five people and damaged plenty of property.
Being involved in a car accident is a serious situation, especially if there are injuries. Anybody who is put in this position due to the negligence of another party has the right to seek compensation for their losses. These claims may include both economic and non-economic damages. An experienced personal injury attorney may provide valuable advice on how best to proceed with such a case.
