Liability For Seneca Falls Car Accidents
Speed is one of the most common causes of car accidents. According to the National Safety Council, “Speeding was a factor in 29% of all traffic fatalities in 2021, killing 12,330, or an average of over 33 people per day. The total number of fatal motor-vehicle crashes attributable to speeding was 11,057.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
The vast majority of car accidents are preventable and involve some amount of driver error. For example, a driver may have failed to check their blind spots before making turns. The family of any person that died in a car accident may be able to seek some measure of justice through a wrongful death claim. It is important that evidence is properly preserved after any collision.
