Liability For Lindenhurst Car Accidents
The vast majority of car accidents are preventable and involve some amount of driver error. Many accidents are due to driver fatigue. According to the National Safety Council, “Driving after going more than 20 hours without sleep is the equivalent of driving with a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.08% – the U.S. legal limit. You are three times more likely to be in a car crash if you are fatigued.” Many other factors could contribute to car accidents including:
- Dangerous left turns
- Poor road conditions
- Vehicle system failures
- Inclement weather
There is a rebuttable presumption of negligence on the part of any person that hits another vehicle after going past a yield sign without yielding. The family of any person that died in such a collision may be able to seek some measure of justice through a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
