Liability For Oswego County Car Accidents

Thousands of people are killed or seriously injured in car accidents each year. According to the IIHS, “There were 39,508 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2021 in which 42,939 deaths occurred. This resulted in 12.9 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.37 deaths per 100 million miles traveled. The fatality rate per 100,000 people ranged from 5.7 in Rhode Island to 26.2 in Mississippi.” Drivers should take a number of steps to prevent collisions.

  • Drivers should slow down at night and during periods of inclement weather.
  • Drivers should continuously scan the road ahead of them.
  • Drivers should abstain from intoxicating substances.

Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous types of crashes that a person can be involved in. They are also the most preventable. They tend to involve drivers that were not paying adequate attention to the road ahead of them. Any person that is injured in a head-on collision may be able to seek some measure of justice through a civil claim.
