Two-car accidents can be very perplexing, especially if neither vehicle was carrying passengers. Without witnesses, police must depend upon the observations and memories of the two people most intimately involved in the incidents that led to the accident. A two-car accident in Penfield that occurred a few days ago shows just how difficult the investigation can be.
Police responded to reports of an accident in Penfield at about 9:00 p.m. on May 27, 2020. They found two vehicles that had been involved in a collision. The drivers were identified as a 19-year old woman and a 56-year-old male. Both drivers suffered injuries, with the woman suffering serious injuries. Both were taken to Strong Memorial Hospital for treatment of their injuries.
Deputies have speculated that alcohol “may have been a factor in the crash” but no other details were released. Police are continuing their investigation of the accident.
Anyone who has been injured or lost a loved one in a similar accident may want to pursue a legal claim for damages. In such cases, the advice of an experienced auto accident attorney can be very helpful in achieving a satisfactory outcome. A knowledgeable lawyer can provide a helpful evaluation of the evidence and an estimate of the likelihood of recovering damages for medical expenses, past and future lost income and pain and suffering. A capable attorney can also develop arguments for assessing and maintaining arguments for assessing liability against the party whose negligence caused the accident. A capable lawyer can also assist in anticipating and resisting defenses against allegations of fault.
