Crash kills car wash worker in New York

Auto accidents can happen in many ways and can cause catastrophic injuries and death. Car wash employees are especially at risk as one wrong turn or accidental acceleration can cause an accident. When people are hurt by a vehicle while at work, it is important to know how to file a lawsuit.

A car wash worker died when a vehicle crashed into him. As the driver was making a turn, the vehicle accelerated and hit the employee and pinned him against a wall. Emergency responders were called, and the man was taken to the hospital, where he later died. The investigation is continuing, but it is believed to have been an accident and criminal activity is not suspected.

Being hit by a car will inevitably cause injuries to a pedestrian. Often, people are simply trying to do their jobs when they are hit and have no time to react. If a family loses a loved one in a car accident while on the job, they may suffer personal, financial and emotional difficulties. Lost wages, lost companionship, medical costs and funeral expenses are just some of the problems that can arise. While it is not easy to think about, having legal help will not only help with the investigation, but an attorney can also assist in seeking compensation in a wrongful death legal filing.

Those hit by a vehicle at any time can suffer injuries and fatalities. After a crash, it is wise for the injured person and their family to understand their rights and take the necessary steps to file a lawsuit immediately. A law firm experienced in automobile collisions can be of assistance.
