Liability For Rochester Car Accidents

Car accidents remain one of the leading causes of serious injury and death in the United States. According to the IIHS, “A total of 42,939 people died in motor vehicle crashes in 2021. These deaths occurred in 39,508 crashes involving 61,332 motor vehicles. This was a 10% increase in deaths compared with 2020.” There are a number of steps that should be taken after any car accident.

  • Eye witnesses should be interviewed.
  • Medical records should be preserved.
  • Surveillance footage should be sought.

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid collisions. If a driver fails to slow down to avoid a collision, this could form the basis of a negligence claim.
