Gruesome New York crash leaves 2 fathers dead

Over the weekend, a 54-year-old Larchmont man got into a cab to head to LaGuardia. A neighbor said his job required him to travel frequently. Only a few miles into the drive down the Hutchinson River Parkway, an SUV that was near the cab lost control. After crashing into the median, the SUV flew into the air, crashing into the cab on its way down.

The collision ripped off the top of the cab. The 54-year-old Larchmont man and the driver from Queens were both killed. The 51-year-old driver had two daughters and two sons. The Larchmont man had three boys.

Several other people were injured in the collision, including the driver and passenger of the SUV and the driver and passenger of another vehicle that was hit.

A crash like this one can happen when you least expect it, like on a routine trip to the airport. As this collision shows all too clearly, a serious car accident can not only claim lives, but tear families apart. Because of this accident alone, seven children will have to cope with the loss of their father.

When a family is forced to endure the devastation of a serious crash like this one, it can often lead to feelings of anger toward the driver who caused the collision. Many people wonder why this happened to them - to their loved one. Although nothing can make up for the wrongful death of a loved one, the family of an accident victim can hold a negligent driver accountable for his or her actions.

Through a wrongful death lawsuit, a family can seek compensation for their pain and suffering, lost wages of the loved one they depended on financially, and other related expenses. A wrongful death lawsuit, however, is not only about collecting deserved compensation. It can also send a message to drivers in New York that negligent driving will not be tolerated on our roads.
