Liability For Yonkers Car Accidents

Speeding is one of the most common causes of car accidents in the United States. According to the NHTSA, “For more than two decades, speeding has been involved in approximately one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities. In 2020, speeding was a contributing factor in 29% of all traffic fatalities.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including:

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

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid collisions. They must not follow another vehicle more closely than would be reasonable or safe given the prevailing conditions. The family of any person that is killed in a car accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
