New York, New York (PRWEB) October 11, 2013
Adnan Munawar, an experienced car accident lawyer and senior partner at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo, LLP, today released a car safety reminder in light of a fatal crash in Westbury, NY that claimed the life of a woman and her child on September 29.
According to the New York Post (Woman and child involved in fatal car accident, 9/29/2013), the woman and child were killed instantly when the car they were riding in jumped the curb and struck a tree. The driver of the vehicle, a man, was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
“This accident is a tragic example of the inherent risk involved in operating a motor vehicle,” said Munawar. “While we don’t know the circumstances that led up to this tragedy, moments like this are a good time to reflect on the best practices that keep us safe on our roadways.”
Munawar ran through a short list of tips to help drivers remain safe on the road.
“Vigilance is a key part of maintaining safety on the road,” said Munawar. “If you are aware of your surroundings, it is easier to react to an unforeseen incident like a tire blowout or an obstructed roadway.”
“Obeying traffic laws are also a major factor in safely driving an automobile,” said Munawar. “Drivers should always adhere to the posted speed limit, and make sure that they and any passengers in their vehicle are wearing their seatbelts.”
Munawar continued on, discussing the legal aspect of car accidents, and how victims of accidents should get a prompt appraisal of their rights.
“Anyone involved in a serious accident involving a vehicle that results in property damage or significant bodily injury should always contact an attorney as soon as they are able,” said Munawar. “Many accident victims or their families could be entitled to compensation depending on the circumstances of the incident. It is always prudent to seek out counsel from an experienced legal professional whenever tragic incidents like these occur.”
