Liability For Manhattan Car Accidents
Thousands of car accidents are caused by drivers that make dangerous turns. Pursuant to New York Vehicle & Traffic Law § 1163, “No person shall turn a vehicle at an intersection […] or move right or left upon a roadway unless and until such movement can be made with reasonable safety.” Victims of bicycle accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
Any person that is injured in a bicycle accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. Sadly, though, drivers will often fight hard to deny liability for any accident they are involved in. A car accident attorney can examine the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
