Liability For Newburgh Car Accidents

Speeding remains one of the leading 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.” There are many other factors that could contribute to a car accident.

  • Distracted driving

  • Vehicle system malfunctions

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid collisions. Any person that is injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
