Saturday evenings are supposed to be a time of relaxation for the owners of the Buffalo Paint and Wallpaper store on Bailey Avenue, near Roosevelt. The store closes at 3 p.m. and remains closed until Monday. Its front was left wide open this Saturday evening when an SUV went right through it when two-vehicle crashed on Bailey Avenue ends.
According to the local news reports, the accident occurred around 7:45 p.m. Saturday. It all started with the collision of two vehicles. The impact force sent one directly into the paint store in the 2900 block. According to police reports, although the accident resulted in injuries, these were not life-threatening.
Luckily, the store was closed at the time of the accident, otherwise, the number of injured victims could have been much higher. There is no information available on who was responsible for the accident. However, the details available so far seem to point to driver negligence.
Was it speed, was one of the drivers intoxicated, or was the accident the result of a fatal combination of these two factors? It is difficult to say at the moment, and other scenarios may apply as well. One thing is certain: the insurance company of the party at fault should expect a consistent compensation claim.
Besides the injuries and property damage caused to the other party, chances are they will also have to cover the cost of the repair works and of the products damaged in the paint store. Apparently, this is not the first time a vehicle crashes into the store, so owners should have an easier time figuring out the steps to follow.
It goes without saying that their case would be easy to win for any experienced Buffalo accident lawyer, and the city surely does not lack offers for legal services.
