Liability For Poughkeepsie Car Accidents
There are a number of factors that could contribute to a car accident. According to the FMCSA, “Fatigue, drinking alcohol, and speeding are major factors in motor vehicle crashes overall. Although their presence does not always result in a crash, these three factors, as well as other driver, vehicle, and environmental factors, can increase the risk that a crash will occur.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries such as:
- Head trauma
- Burn injuries
All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care to avoid hitting other vehicles. Any person that is injured due to the negligence of another driver may have legal recourse through a civil claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover many of the expenses that come with a serious collision. A car accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
