One-car fatal accident leaves passenger dead in upstate New York

A one-vehicle accident in New York can be the basis for a personal injury claim if there were passengers involved. Such accidents tend to include collisions with poles, trees or even buildings. One or more occupants may be ejected, either in a rollover or as the vehicle makes impact with a tree or other unyielding object. The event can easily become a fatal accident due to such perilous factors. Consequently, whenever there are one or more passengers in a vehicle that is driven so negligently that it leaves the roadway and crashes, the prospect for injury or death to the passengers looms large.
