Liability For Canarsie Car Accidents

Thousands of people are killed or seriously injured every year in storefront collisions. According to Blockaides, “The problem of vehicles crashing into people and buildings is widespread. As part of its mission to raise awareness and prevent as many accidents as possible, the Storefront Safety Council collects and analyzes storefront crashes. The most recently compiled statistics from the Storefront Safety Council show that these types of accidents happen “60 times a day, over 4,000 injured annually, and as many as 500 killed each year.” Victims of collisions tend to suffer very serious injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries

The vast majority of storefront collisions are preventable and involve some amount of driver error. It can be hard to know what to do after any collision involving a vehicle going into a storefront. 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.
