New York, New York (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
New York Yankee Ichiro Suzuki was in an auto accident that damaged his car beyond repair. The outfielder was uninjured in the accident, reported ESPN. It’s a good bet the Yankees were relieved to know he wasn't hurt, said New York auto accident lawyer David Perecman.
According to ESPN (3.3.13), a woman cut him off while she was making a left turn on Dale Mabry Highway. Ichiro's Land Rover struck the car. As reported by ESPN, Ichiro was not at fault.
“Apparently the accident occurred because of a driver's negligence,” said Perecman. “If a driver fails to check for oncoming traffic, and pulls into the path of an oncoming vehicle, that driver could be held responsible for the damages. The driver is lucky Suzuki was uninjured.”
Victims of auto accidents may sue a negligent driver in civil court, allowing them to recover financial compensation. Compensatory damages may include lost wages, in addition to medical expenses and a number of other additional damages.
The New York Yankees plan to pay Suzuki $18 million in 2013, according to ESPN.
The accident happened near George Steinbrenner Field after a preseason game between the Yankees and the Detroit Tigers, said ESPN.
