Police in New York are in the process of investigating a crash that left a child injured and motherless. This car accident occurred in the Brooklyn area on Tuesday, June 10. One or both of the drivers involved in this incident may be held legally responsible for the losses suffered by the surviving victim and the other family members of the deceased.
A 32-year-old woman and her 6-year-old son were at the bus stop next to their home on Remsen Avenue when two vehicles crashed in front of them. The force of impact sent one of the cars in their direction and struck them both. The female victim suffered fatal injuries, and her son was critically wounded. The child’s recovery will be a long and difficult one, but he is expected to survive.
Little information is known about the drivers. As of the latest report, no criminal charges have been filed against either of them. Area residents say that speeding is a significant concern on this particular street. Authorities have not specified if speeding contributed to this crash.
A lot was lost here. A child lost his mother, and a mother lost her daughter. The child is suffering physically and emotionally, and the financial burden of paying for a funeral and medical expenses now falls on the decedent’s loved ones. If negligence is thought to have contributed to this car accident, legal claims may be filed against the responsible party or parties. Through litigation in a New York civil court or out-of-court settlement negotiations, compensation for any and all recoverable damages may be achieved.
