Liability For New York Car Accidents

Thousands of people are killed or seriously injured in car accidents every year in the United States. 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.” There are a number of factors that could contribute to a car accident.

  • Distracted driving
  • Vehicle system failures
  • Tire blowouts
  • Slick roadways
  • Driver intoxication

It has been estimated that roughly 93% of all collisions involve some amount of driver error. This could include instances where drivers are following other vehicles on the roadway too closely. Rear-end collisions are among the most common types of accidents that occur. It is important for accident victims to understand that they do have rights. The family of any person who is killed in a car accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim.
