Liability For Staten Island Car Accidents
There are many factors that could lead to a car accident including speeding. According to Forbes, “Speeding increases both the risk of collisions occurring as well as the risk of severe and fatal injuries. A total of 29% of all deadly car accidents occur as a result of speeding drivers. Motorists who go too fast accounted for 11,258 fatalities.” Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
The vast majority of car accidents are preventable and involve some amount of driver error. The family of any person that died in a car accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. Sadly, though, drivers will often fight hard to deny liability for any collision. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what caused any collision.
