Customer Injured in a Car Accident in Hyundai Show Room
A prospective customer in a Hyundai dealership left the building in an ambulance instead of a new car this past week. The individual was exploring a Hyundai showroom in Brooklyn and then sat down with a sales representative at one of the desks to discuss prices.
At this time, another Hyundai employee was moving cars around in the show room. He was driving a brand new Hyundai Santa Fe to another spot in the showroom when he slammed onto the gas pedal. The car sped straight at the customer sitting at the desk and struck him, pinning him against the wall.
The victim is now seeking compensation for his injuries from the accident. He says that he suffered multiple injuries to his head and body and has not been able to return to work since the accident occurred. The incident happened on December 15th, 2013. The individual wants compensation for all medical bills as well as for all unpaid time off work.
The employee who was driving the Hyundai Santa Fe allegedly muttered that he knew he would be fired after the incident happened. A manager scolded the driver, saying that he shouldn’t have been driving the cars around the show room because he had been in accidents before. The victim’s lawyer claims that his client deserves compensation because “people go to automobile showrooms to purchase cars, not to get violently struck by one.”
