Liability In Lindenhurst Car Accidents
Car accidents remain one of the leading causes of injury and death in the United States. According to the IIHS, “There were 35,766 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2020 in which 38,824 deaths occurred. This resulted in 11.7 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.34 deaths per 100 million miles traveled. The fatality rate per 100,000 people ranged from 4.9 in Massachusetts to 25.4 in Mississippi.” There are a number of factors that could potentially contribute to a car accident.
- Drunk driving
- Inclement weather
- Driver fatigue
Drivers intending to make left turns are supposed to yield the right of way to vehicles close enough so as to pose a hazard. The family of any victim that died due to the negligence of any driver may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim. Sadly, insurance companies will often fight hard to deny liability for any collision. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
