Two teenagers were killed and two others were taken to the hospital after an accident that happened early in the morning on Thursday, February 25, on the Saw Mill River Parkway in Yonkers. The Yonkers one-vehicle crash happened shortly before 1 a.m in the southbound lanes.
According to the police, there were four people in the car. The police identified one of them as seventeen-year-old Ali Alghaithi from Manhattan; the teen was found outside the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Teen drivers often end in accidents because of lack of driving experience, speeding, drinking and driving, negligence or because they lose control over the car.
If you were a victim of such an accident and ended up injured, the first thing to do is seek medical help. In case the car was operated by someone else, you have the right to file a compensation claim against the driver’s insurance company. This isn’t something you do against them, but simply your right to get a settlement for your damages and injuries.
Having medical bills and lost wages aren’t quite something to look forward to. If your injuries were severe and you spent some time in the hospital, and your recovery was long, then certainly you will need money to cover all the expenses.
It’s best to seek legal assistance from a car accident attorney who will review your case. Your lawyer will advise you what to do next. Many people are overwhelmed, confused and scared. But, when you have a lawyer with you, things should be less stressful.
