Common Causes of Car Accidents in New York

Automobile accidents are a class of tort cases that derive, for the most part, from the basic tort principle of negligence, defined as the lack of ordinary care. In other words, negligence is a failure to use that degree of care that a reasonable, prudent person would have used under similar circumstances.

The most common types of car accidents are caused by:

  • Driver error or driver negligence – including failing to yield the right of way, failing to leave adequate space with the car in front, driving too fast and driving while intoxicated
  • Distractions to the driver – including use of cell phones, changing the radio station or putting on makeup
  • Failure to properly service and maintain a car, truck or bus
  • Road defect or negligent design of the roadway
  • Product liability or auto manufacturing defect

Reasons to Hire a Car Accident Lawyer

If you were involved in a car accident that was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another individual and you sustained serious personal injuries, you should contact a car accident attorney in NYC  as you may be entitled to compensation.

You can basically recover anything that has been an expense for you as a result of a car accident that was caused by the negligence of another driver. This includes:

  • All medical expenses
  • Any lost wages
  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of property
  • Loss of use of property

Insurance Companies Are Not On Your Side

You may be tempted to negotiate with the insurance company yourself. However, it is important to remember that insurance adjusters have one goal, to settle your claim for as little money as possible. Moreover, once you accept a settlement and cash the check from the insurance company of the at-fault party, your case is settled and there is nothing that even the most skilled car accident attorney can do to recover more money to pay for your damages and/or your personal injuries.

Before you make any decisions or even talk to an insurance adjuster, you should consult with one of our attorneys. Our legal team is experienced in negotiating with even the most skilled insurance adjustors. We will help you avoid financially painful mistakes.

I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek.
