Pedestrian-motor vehicle accidents common at one intersection

Motor vehicle accidents can happen at any location in Uniondale. These can involve vehicles crashing into one another, a crash between a vehicle and a bicyclist or a motor vehicle hitting a pedestrian. For people who are in one of these accidents, it can cause significant life changes with long-term damage, medical costs, lost wages and the need for extensive care, perhaps for the rest of their life. There can even be fatalities. While the randomness of a motor vehicle crash could lead to the perception that they happen in different areas, there are specific spots where it is known to be risky, especially for pedestrians. Those injured in this or any location should remember their rights to compensation in a legal filing.

The intersection of Fayette Street had two accidents in which pedestrians were hit by cars in two days. This adds to the anecdotal evidence of the location's danger with people saying how vehicles speed by. The intersection, known as 5 Corners, is heavy with traffic and poses risk for people who are not only driving, but walking as well. Law enforcement says there have been 20 motor vehicle accidents at that location since the beginning of 2018. Three involved vehicles and pedestrians. These incidents have come in recent weeks. Although the two who were in the most recent accidents are expected to be fine, a man who was hit one month before was not so lucky and died. Law enforcement is taking steps to get drivers to reduce speed at that intersection.

Regardless of where the accident happens, there are certain fundamental truths that those who were in the crash and the families of people who might have died must remember. The insurance companies will often seem concerned about the victim's well-being and ask questions that sound as if they truly care - in general they do - but they also have a job to do and part of that entails doing whatever is legally possible to keep costs under control. People might make the mistake of saying the wrong thing that could damage a possible legal filing. With medical expenses, lost wages, the negative implications from injuries and fatalities, it is crucial to have legal help.

With the Fayette Street intersection such a known danger, those who are in an accident should know what steps to take in its aftermath. This is true in any area of Uniontown. A law firm that has the experience and understanding to pursue a legal claim after motor vehicle accidents should be contacted as soon as possible to file a case.
