Liability For Brooklyn Car Accidents

Many accidents are due to drivers that commit traffic infractions. Pursuant to New York Vehicle Code 1172, the driver of any vehicle approaching a yield sign shall stop and only proceed when it is safe to do so. If a driver hits a vehicle after going past a yield sign without yielding, this may be considered prima facie evidence of their failure to yield. It is important that evidence is properly preserved after any car accident.

  • Eye witnesses should be interviewed.
  • Medical records should be preserved.
  • Surveillance footage should be sought.
  • An experienced personal injury attorney should be contacted.

The vast majority of car accidents are preventable and involve some amount of human error. This could include instances where drivers are intoxicated or traveling too fast for the prevailing conditions. Any person that is injured in a car accident may be able to seek some measure of justice through a civil claim.
