Liability In North Hempstead Car Accidents
Speed remains one of the leading causes of car accidents in the United States. According to the NHTSA, “Speeding endangers everyone on the road: 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.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries

The family of any person that is killed in a car accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. Damages in a civil claim can help with many of the unexpected expenses that can come with a serious collision. It is important that all evidence is preserved after any crash.
