Liability For New York Car Accidents

Speed is one of the most common causes of car accidents in the United States. According to the NHTSA, “For more than two decades, speeding has been involved in approximately one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities. In 2020, speeding was a contributing factor in 29% of all traffic fatalities.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries, including:

  • Broke bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Organ damage

The vast majority of car accidents are preventable. They often involve drivers who are not following traffic regulations. It is important for accident victims to understand that they do have rights. Any person who is injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a civil claim. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
