Driver Dies after Slamming into Several Cars in Bronx

Q: Should I sue or accept an insurance company’s settlement offer?

A Bronx car accident on a sunny and dry afternoon recently left a path of devastation in its wake along a stretch of busy roadway lined with cars and pedestrians.

A 65-year-old woman in an SUV reportedly "barreled down" the road literally slamming into several “parked cars and other vehicles” before her own vehicle flipped over and landed on its side. Neighborhood video surveillance recordings captured the incident, which claimed the life of the woman. Investigators were trying to determine whether the woman may have suffered from a medical condition at the time of the accident.

In a personal injury lawsuit, those who have been injured or harmed due to the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of someone else may be entitled to financial compensation. Damages may include property damage, current and future medical expenses, lost income, diminished future earnings, pain and suffering, and more depending on the facts of each particular case.

The ability to sue and a positive outcome depend not only on an experienced attorney, but on a thorough investigation of the accident. It’s important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible after an accident so the attorney can be involved in the investigation, speak on your behalf to authorities, see that key evidence and witness statements are preserved, and negotiate a fair settlement (or alternatively proceed with litigation) on your behalf.

It is never advisable to accept an insurance company’s initial settlement offer without first consulting an attorney who is able to determine whether it is a fair offer in light of all the circumstances of your individual case. Plus, an attorney may be able to negotiate a higher settlement.
