New York Auto Accidents

Car crashes are one of the most common reasons individuals in the United States sustain injuries and lose their lives. Sadly, most of these collisions are totally preventable. This is due to the problem of negligent driving. In the past decade, more than 90% of reported American car crashes have been caused by the actions of negligent/erroneous drivers, according to information provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. At this point in time, the most commonly seen type of driver negligence is driver distraction, causing over 400,000 vehicle collisions per year and taking the lives of over 3,000 annually. 

If you are a mindful driver, it is probable that you are less likely to become involved in an accident. However, we are unable to predict the actions of other drivers on the roadway. There is a chance that another driver could crash into you or cause an accident nearby which then involves you. This is why it is so important for drivers to remain alert, aware, awake, and sober while behind the wheel and why driver safety and the rules of the road should be more openly and readily discussed in society. 

Suffering injuries in a negligently caused collision can put you in the hospital for a prolonged period of time or leave you stuck at home recovering while you’re unable to work.

You may be eligible to file a personal injury claim for financial compensation if any of this sounds familiar to you. A car crash lawyer in Queens can help you get the money you need to recover.
