Liability For Rochester Car Accidents
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 injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
All drivers have a legal obligation to avoid collisions. If a driver enters opposing lanes of traffic, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Any person that is injured due to the negligence of another driver may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
