Motor Vehicle Accidents
Automobile accidents are an extremely common occurrence in New York. Accidents range from simple “fender benders” where damage to vehicles and passengers is trivial to catastrophic accidents where severe injury or death occur. Most car accidents occur due to driver inattention or what is known in legal terms as negligence. Driver inattention encompasses failure to observe traffic control devices like stop signs and yield signs or becoming distracted from attention to the roadway. Recently, a spike in accidents has been caused by texting while driving or talking on a cell phone while driving. The dramatic increase in these kinds of accidents led the New York State Legislature to enact the “No texting and driving law.” In addition to driver negligence, car accidents can be caused by a road that was poorly designed or constructed. Regardless of the cause of the accident, experienced lawyers are needed to achieve the best possible result.
