Queens Crash Victim Continues Struggle for Life


A 40-year-old woman remains in grave condition, on a respirator. She was the passenger in a car that jumped from a Queensboro Bridge ramp in April.

The victim sustained major head injuries in the accident. Her prognosis is grim and she is not expected to live much longer. The Volkswagen she was riding in jumped the curb in Queen Plaza South in Long Island City and smashed into the front of a store, police sources reported to NYC Injury Lawyers.

The store the vehicle hit had already suffered recent damage when another car crashed into not much more than a week before. A cab driver, who was walking in the area at the time, was killed.

As for the driver of the Volkswagen, the 39-year-old man lost his arm and was taken to Bellevue Hospital. After the accident, he was charged with driving without a license.

The woman is still considered to be in critical condition at New York-Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell.

A number of elected officials, including a state senator will meet at the site of the two crashes to implore the city’s Transportation Department to investigate the area’s street design and improve traffic safety so such accidents will never happen again.

There are many accidents in the United States every day, just in the New York City area alone including Suffolk and Nassau counties. Sadly, many of them happen because of someone else’s negligence. A dangerous ramp at a well-trafficked area causing two terrible crashes is a clear sign that someone did something wrong. It may even be a case for someone calling a Lawyer to make sure one or more of the victims is properly compensated – or in some cases, the families of the victims. These accidents, whether they cause injury or death, can often have costs that run higher than most families can afford. Families facing such expenses need compensation, just as those that caused the accident should pay for the pain and suffering they have caused. This is exactly what a NYC Injury Lawyer is there to provide.
