Liability For Mount Sinai Car Accidents
Rear-end collisions are the most common type of car accident that takes place. They are also the most preventable. According to New York Vehicle and Traffic Law 1129, “The driver of a motor vehicle shall not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of such vehicles and the traffic upon and the condition of the highway.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
There is a rebuttable presumption of negligence on the part of any driver that hits another vehicle from behind. These collisions almost always take place due to drivers that are speeding, distracted or following the lead vehicle too closely. Any person that is injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. A car accident attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
