A 17-year-old girl died in an accident that took place in North York on Nov. 25. The girl was a passenger in a Mazda that collided with a taxi at the intersection of Don Mills Road and Green Belt Drive. Authorities were called to the scene of the accident at about 12:05 p.m. According to police, the Mazda was traveling in the northbound lane of Don Mills Road when it was struck by the taxi.

At the time of the wreck, the taxi was attempting to make a left onto Green Belt Drive, and the collision caused the Mazda to strike a traffic pole. Police say that the deceased individual was trapped in the car and that she died at the scene. The driver and two other passengers experienced only minor injuries, and authorities said that the driver of the taxi was not injured. They also said that the person operating the taxi stayed at the scene of the crash.

The family members of those who are killed in an automobile accident may have standing to file a wrongful death suit. In a wrongful death suit, an individual may be able to claim lost future earnings or other damages on behalf of a deceased person. An attorney may be able to help a spouse, parent or sibling determine if they have standing to file such a lawsuit.

If a person is able to proceed with legal action, an attorney may help that party obtain a favorable outcome in the matter. This might be done by showing that another person or entity was negligent in allowing an accident to occur. Legal counsel may use a police report, witness statements or other evidence to show that negligence played a role in a collision.
