Liability In Schuyler Car Accident

Speed is one of the most common causes of car accidents in the United States. According to the NHTSA, “In 2020, speeding killed 11,258 people. We all know the frustrations of modern life and juggling a busy schedule, but speed limits are put in place to protect all road users.” There are a number of other factors that could potentially contribute to a car accident.

  • Distracted driving
  • Inclement weather
  • Driver fatigue
  • Drunk driving

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid hitting other vehicles. A large number of collisions are due to drivers that are making left turns. According to New York Vehicle Code 1141, no person shall turn left onto a roadway or driveway unless such a movement can be made with reasonable safety. There are many steps that should be taken after any collision.

  • Surveillance footage should be sought.
  • Medical records should be preserved.
  • Eye witnesses should be interviewed.

Any person that is injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. A bodily injury claim can help victims recover many of the damages that they sustain. This could lost wages and medical bills. A car accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
