Losing a loved one any time of the year is difficult, but it can be especially hard during the holiday season. Most people are planning holiday get-togethers and thinking of what to buy each other. No one ever expects to suddenly lose a loved one in a senseless car accident.
An accident in a Brooklyn neighborhood recently took the life of a 30-year-old woman. The woman was apparently hit and killed by a driver at about 5:30p.m. on a Sunday evening. The driver of the car involved was apparently uninsured and unlicensed.
There were two other pedestrians that were seriously injured. The 30-year-old woman was taken to the hospital but was later pronounced dead.
There were a handful of witnesses near the accident that rushed to help those involved and surveillance footage recorded part of the crash.
When it comes to finding negligence in this case, there seems to be plenty of evidence. Not only is the driver uninsured and unlicensed, but there were quite a few witnesses to the accident. The family of the 30-year-old woman, along with the two other injured pedestrians, may want to use this information when filing a personal injury lawsuit against the driver.
A lawyer can work with the woman’s family in order to file a wrongful death suit. While tragic events like this happen every day, it doesn’t mean that a driver such as this one should get away with it. Not only may the driver be changed by police, but the driver may also be facing lawsuits in the future.
