A pedestrian was killed Monday evening, September 26, 2016 near 449 W. 54th street in the Vermont Square neighborhood. The name of the victim, identified as a male in his 70s, is being withheld pending notification of the next of kin.  Authorities report  that a Buick sedan rear ended an SUV that was preparing to turn right into a driveway.  The collision with the Buick caused the SUV to lose control and crash into a man and woman in their 70s along with their 50-year-old daughter at an adjacent bus stop.  All three sustained injuries and were transported to the hospital.  The driver of the Buick who caused the collision fled the scene and is being sought by police. Unfortunately, the man later died from his injuries.  Our thoughts and condolences are with the family and friends of the deceased and injured



Any incident resulting in fatalities and major injuries is a difficult time for families and friends of victims.  Often times, there is little, if any, information regarding the facts and circumstances of a catastrophic event.  It becomes frustrating for family and friends who need information.  When tragedy strikes, a compassionate and experienced attorney can help families navigate through times that are emotionally and physically trying.

At Kalfayan Merjanian, we know that no amount of money can replace a friend or loved one.  But we also know that funeral costs, loss of earnings and loss of love and support also become a concern after a catastrophic event.  Our aggressive and effective approach to handling catastrophic injuries may get funeral expenses covered right away and immediately bring a civil action against those responsible.
