A motor vehicle accident in the Bronx resulted in the death of the driver. The driver’s female passenger was injured in this accident as well.

The details of this accident:

This accident happened at about 2:30 a.m. on Sunday. It occurred when a 22-year-old man was driving his 2009 Subaru sedan on the Northbound Hutchinson River Parkway in the Bronx, says the NYPD (New York Police Department). The initial police investigation reveals that the Subaru sedan collided with a 2007 BMW.

A 33-year-old female was driving the BMW, also travelling northbound. The impact of this motor vehicle accident was so severe that the Subaru sedan continued moving after the collision and hit a tree.

Both were taken to a nearby medical facility where the Subaru’s driver was pronounced dead by doctors. The woman injured in the accident was in critical condition. The driver of the BMW involved in the accident, and her 48-year-old passenger, did not suffer any injuries. Both of them remained at the scene.

The police are investigating this accident further, but the identification of the deceased is pending for the family notification, said authorities.

Many people suffer from slip and fall accidents at some point in their life. It’s sad but true! The accident may not be your fault. It’s sadder because slips and falls can occur anywhere, and to anybody. It’s important to know what to do after such an accident. Structures and buildings must be built and maintained to ensure they can be used safely. It is a responsibility known as premises liability.

The steps taken immediately after a slip and fall accident are crucial to building the best-possible legal case.

 3 Important steps to take after a Slip and Fall Accident:

  • Document the Accident

Make sure you file an incident report with the building or management company for the building.  If you call emergency              services, they will have reports generated as well.  If you are physically capable, take photographs of the defect that                        caused the slip or trip. Get names and contact information of any witnesses to the accident.

  •  Medical Treatment

It doesn’t matter if it’s about your health or the health of a loved one – It should be your number one priority following a             slip and fall accident. If you are hurt after an accident, see a doctor immediately so you can get the right treatment. The                 doctor also helps with the proper documentation about your injuries. Those injury/medical records will work as an                       important piece of evidence when you seek compensation with the assistance of a slip and fall accident lawyer in                             Brooklyn.

  • Contact an Attorney
