Unlicensed driver causes accident in Staten Island

Every day, New York residents trust that their own well-cultivated driving skills will help them avoid accidents with other vehicles. While there certainly may be something to be said about the ability of defensive driving tactics to help avoid collisions, oftentimes people are left at the mercy of others' negligent actions. One cannot control whether another choose to drive recklessly; rather, they can only hope to not be in such a driver's general vicinity when any negligent action occurs. 

Sadly, a man and his two young passengers happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when they encountered a reckless driver on Hylan Blvd. in Staten Island. Witnesses say that a woman driving a Dodge Charger suddenly tried to make a right turn while traveling in the center lane. She ended up running into the man's vehicle (which was traveling in the right lane). The crash occurred right in front of a police station. The man and his passengers (two young girls) were rushed to a local hospital for treatment of what were reported to be serious injuries. 

The condition of the driver of the Charger was not reported; what is known; however, is that she was unlicensed. Accident victims in such cases may be relying on insurance coverage to help pay for their medical bills and vehicle repairs, yet if it is not sufficient (or worse yet, not available), they may be left with little choice but to seek compensation from that caused their accidents. Those in such a position may first want to speak with an attorney to determine their best course of action.
