David Perecman, a NY Personal Injury and pedestrian accident lawyer, uses an unexpected accident on the set of an upcoming film as an example for all.
New York (PRWEB) May 25, 2009 -- New York personal injury claims lawyer David Perecman isn't suspicious, but in this case, two car accidents in three days is enough to make a New York film shoot appear cursed.
In the second accident, nine crew members were injured when a taxi cab hit a jeep which then rolled on to the sidewalk and hit them while they were taking a coffee break during the filming of Nicholas Cage's upcoming film, "The Sorcerer's Apprentice." Lights, camera, and more life-and-death action then any director could want.
"In a big city like New York, pedestrian and automobile accidents can happen at any time, and in the most unexpected ways, " says David Perecman, a leading NY personal injury lawyer.
Fortunately none of the crew members were seriously injured, but they certainly could have been. Day to day, we don't often concern ourselves with what could happen but lives have been devastated by personal injury and consequences of an unexpected accident.
"It makes you think," says Perecman, who is also well known as a New York construction accident lawyer. "That could have been me or someone I love walking down that street at that particular time."
Movie production companies have preplanned courses of action to ensure the safety of its crew and prepare for the next steps in any ordeals. However, it's very rare that regular, ordinary people are as well prepared. Hopefully, what comes out of accidents such as these is the motivation for people to prepare for "worst case scenarios". Better to have a personal injury attorney who you know will fight for you and not to need one, then not have a personal injury claims lawyer and need one.
