Syracuse man suffers head injury when driver cuts him off

It is vitally important that anyone on the road follows all traffic regulations. These laws are in place because they keep Syracuse drivers safe. While some people may not care if they put their lives at risk, it is more than just them who are in danger. When a driver follows too closely or fails to stop at a red light, he or she is putting everyone else on the road's lives at risk. Though it is absolutely tragic when an accident happens because one driver just wouldn't follow the law, an injured driver can file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver responsible for the crash.

Unfortunately, if that driver cannot be found or identified, it makes filing a personal injury lawsuit much more difficult. For a 26-year-old Syracuse man who was recently involved in a car accident, knowing who the driver was that cut him and another driver off is essential if he wants to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Following the accident, he told police that he hurt his head and he was taken to Upstate University Hospital. It is not clear how serious of a head injury he has suffered. What is clear, however, is that the accident was likely caused by the unknown third driver.

Both the 26-year-old and a 22-year-old driver told police that they were driving in the same lane when the third driver cut one of them off. Though the third driver's vehicle was not hit, the 26- and 22-year-old crashed. It is unfortunate that neither driver was able to give police much to go on with regard to the third driver or his or her vehicle.
