A 6-year-old boy died in a two-car accident in upstate New York on Saturday night, reported The Wall Street Journal (2/19/2012). Tyler McIntyre was killed when a 2008 Mercury failed to yield the right of way to another vehicle at an intersection in the town of Milton, said the YNN Hudson Valley (2/19/2012).
The boy died several hours after the upstate New York auto accident. The other people involved in the auto accident were treated for non-life threatening injuries and there was no indication alcohol was involved, according to the WSJ. “Having an experienced New York auto accident lawyer working for you after an auto accident in New York can make a tremendous difference,” said New York auto accident lawyer David Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York’s auto accident law firms.
If an individual has been in a New York car accident and the other driver did not yield the right-of-way, the car accident victim and/or the victim’s family may have a claim for medical expenses, pain and suffering, cost of care and other damages, explained Perecman. A wrongful death arises when a person dies as a result of the negligence or other wrongful conduct of another person.
“An experienced New York car accident lawyer will work with accident reconstruction experts and others on identifying accident causes and holding negligent drivers accountable,” said Perecman, a New York auto accident lawyer for over 30 years.
“In an auto accident wrongful death lawsuit, those experts are needed to make sure that individuals and-or their families receive the maximum amount of compensation for New York auto accident injuries or deaths.” If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an auto accident in New York, please contact the New York auto accident lawyers at The Perecman Firm.
