Car Accident at the College of Staten Island Sends One Person to the Hospital

College of Staten Island

STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK – According to an online news article published by www.silive.com, one person sustained injuries in an accident on campus at the College of Staten Island.

An early afternoon accident sent one person to Staten Island University Hospital in Ocean Breeze for treatment of injuries.  While the details and severity of the injuries have not been released, the injured person is expected to recover.

A video posted on social media reveals that one car on campus at the College of Staten Island was flipped over and resting on its hood. According to the news article, a “dented, black Hyundai sedan with airbags deployed was seen at the crash site.” However, it is unclear whether the vehicle seen on video and the vehicle described as a black Hyundai are the same vehicle.  As such, it is also unclear whether the accident only involved one vehicle or if more than one vehicle was involved.

What Happens When a Car Accident Happens in a Parking Lot?

Parking lot accidents are frequent and often do not result in catastrophic injuries.  After all, vehicles are typically traveling at a slow pace in parking lots. Depending on the number of vehicles involved in an accident, a parking lot accident may be handled no differently than any other car accident that happens on a street or highway.

If an accident involves only one vehicle, the driver of that vehicle may choose to file an insurance claim to receive compensation for injuries and property damage, depending on the terms of the insurance policy.  If two or more vehicles are involved, insurance companies may fight over which driver or drivers were to blame for causing an accident, and what insurance policy will have to compensate injured individuals and those whose vehicles sustained damage.

If the parking lot was defective or dangerous in some way (such as uncleared snow or ice, poor lighting, or potholes, among others), an injured driver might seek to hold the property owner responsible for contributing to the parking lot accident.  In many cases, more than one party may be considered at-fault for causing a parking lot accident that leads to injuries and property damage.
