New York accident lawyer Adnan Munawar released a statement today commenting on an accident that occurred when a car flipped into a creek in Queens, killing four passengers.

Experienced New York car accident Lawyer Adnan Munawar, a senior partner in Munawar & Andrews-Santillo, LLP released a statement today commenting on a recent car accident in Queens that killed four and injured one.

According to a report from the Associated Press (Nypd: 4 Dead, 1 Injured After Car Flips Into Creek, 4/5/2014), four passengers were killed and the driver seriously injured when their vehicle flipped into Steinway Creek, off the East River in Queens, NY.

According to the report, the car was traveling down 19th avenue when it hit the curb and rolled into the creek, where it sank. The report states that the driver was able to free himself from the car and escape, but the four other passengers were not able to extricate themselves from the car and perished.

“This is by all accounts a tragic loss of life,” said Adnan Munawar of Munawar & Andrews-Santillo, LLP. “The details that led up to this particular accident are not immediately clear, and will require a full investigation by the proper authorities before any kind of liability can be assessed. With that said, incidents such as this one very often result in some sort of claim being filed with the courts, usually in the form of a civil action such as a wrongful death lawsuit. If a police investigation returned sufficient evidence, criminal charges could also be filed. In any case, anyone involved in an incident such as this should seek counsel from an attorney with significant experience in these matters.”
