Liability For New York Car Accidents

Thousands of car accidents are caused by drivers who 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
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries

The vast majority of bicycle accidents are preventable and involve some amount of driver error. This is why it is so important that all evidence is properly preserved. Any person who is injured due to the negligence of a driver may be able to seek some measure of justice through a civil claim. A bicycle accident attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
