Serious accident injures Brooklyn mother

A Brooklyn mom of six, the youngest of which is only 6 months old, is currently clinging to life at Bellevue Hospital. The woman was heading home in a Lyft after checking on her parents who have COVID. The Lyft driver entered the intersection at DeKalb and Bedford when a Dodge Charger ran a red light and t-boned the Lyft Honda Accord. The impact from the crash ejected the woman from the Accord and she was taken to the hospital in critical condition. The Lyft driver was also taken to the hospital. Police are continuing to investigate the accident and charges are pending.

Personal injury attorney fierce advocate for injured victims

No one expects their loved one will be the victim of a serious accident. Unfortunately, these accidents occur to thousands of families each year in New York and across the country. When a person is negligent in their driving and harms another person, they can be held accountable. An attorney who specializes in personal injury can help a family get the justice they deserve. They can visit the accident scene and interview witnesses, review the police report, and help get answers as to what happened. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, future medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.

When a person is injured in an accident due to no fault of their own, they have the legal right to hold the negligent party responsible for their mistake. Car accidents can have severe consequences so having an attorney is important.
