Our New York Personal Injury Lawyers represented a woman who was also accidentally run over by her husband. He was backing up to pick her up and did not realize she was standing in the street. She suffered serious spinal injuries. Fortunately the husband had purchased an endorsement in his insurance policy specifically stating that interspousal liability was covered by the policy. In New York if this is not explicitly included in the policy interspousal accidents will not be covered. Too many people do not understand this and do not purchase the endorsement.
