5 injured in DUI accident near Radio City Music Hall

There is never a good time to be in a car accident. However, when a Michigan resident is away on a vacation, it can seem even more devastating.

Last month, five occupants of a hotel shuttle van ended up in the hospital following a collision outside Radio City Music Hall in New York. The car accident was reportedly caused by the driver of a Mercedes-Benz, who may have been not only speeding, but also driving drunk.

The accident victims were on their way to the airport when the Mercedes smashed into the shuttle van. The force of the impact ejected the driver and passers-by freed him from underneath the wreckage of the van. He suffered broken ribs and a broken shoulder. Four passengers suffered personal injuries ranging from minor cuts and bruises to more serious broken ribs and a skull fracture.

Although the drunk driver in this accident has been criminally charged, accident victims may also need to file civil personal injury claims in order to recoup damages.

By doing this, compensation can be obtained for medical expenses and other costs of the accident, such as lost wages resulting from an inability to work, and the expenses of missing their flights.

Even when a negligent driver carries insurance, accident victims may find the insurance company resistant to pay out claims in the appropriate amount, and policy coverage may not be enough even when insurance companies do agree to pay. Here in Michigan, those who have been injured by a criminally negligent driver should know that they have rights under the law and they do not have to settle for initial insurance company offers.
