Car accident in New York results in injuries at restaurant

Car accidents that occur on the roadways are unexpected enough. When a car accident occurs near a restaurant and restaurant patrons become the victims, the scene can be even more devastating and unexpected. In New York recently, an elderly man backed up and caused chaos as his car hit the establishment.

The 87-year-old driver was reportedly in a handicapped spot and had started to back out. As he did, he collided with a 72-year-old woman who was in the parking lot. As the car continued to back up, the woman was between the restaurant and the car.

The victim who was hit needed to be taken to a medical facility for treatment of injuries sustained by being pinned up against the vehicle. She was said to be in stable condition. There were also people in the restaurant who suffered minor injuries. Those three victims were 77 years old, 74 years old and 57 years old. The driver was issued a summons for unsafe backing and also for what was called imprudent speed.

The victim who needed medical treatment for injuries may have a mountain of medical bills. The woman may also suffer on-going medical issues related to any injuries she suffered. When victims are put in this kind of position after a car accident, they may be able to pursue a civil personal injury suit in a New York civil court, and, if successful, they could garner monetary damages that would help alleviate any strain those medical bills or other expenses may have posed.
