Lessons Should be Learned from High Profile New York Auto Accidents, Lawyer Says


new York auto accident lawyer David Perecman comments on the recent spate of high profile auto accidents in New York City.

“While auto accidents are never a good thing, when they make the news, more people can learn from them,” said David Perecman, a New York auto accident lawyer who has been practicing in New York for over 30 years.

In one vehicular accident reported by multiple New York news sources, an SUV fell from the upper level of the FDR Drive and landed on a taxi below. Eight people were hurt, two of them critically, in the auto accident.

As reported by the New York Post, a 15-year-old pedestrian died after being hit by an SUV carrying LA Laker star Lamar Odom. The Queens, New York auto-pedestrian accident left the teen with serious head injuries. He died the day after the auto accident.

Both vehicular accidents are still being investigated by New York auto accident lawyers.

“High profile auto accidents raise the emphasis on road safety. It is up to us to learn from these horrific crashes so that the mistakes made are not repeated in New York,” said auto accident lawyer Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York's auto accident law firms. “Personal injuries from auto accidents often lead to significant physical, financial and emotional challenges and they’re best to be avoided.”

A few years ago Perecman settled an auto accident case for $1,2500,000 for a woman passenger who injured her spine in a car accident in New York.
