Liability For Harlem Car Accidents
Speeding is one of the most common causes of car accidents in the United States. According to the National Safety Council, “Speeding is a major factor in traffic deaths and injuries. The role of speeding in crashes is described in terms of its effect on the driver, the vehicle, and the road.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
All drivers must slow down to avoid hitting other vehicles. A number of collisions are due to drivers that are following the lead vehicle too closely. If a driver fails to use reasonable care and injures someone in a collision, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
