New York Car Crashes
Car crashes have the potential to cause overwhelming injuries for the people involved. Sadly, traffic accidents happen hundreds of times per day in the state of New York alone. Across the United States, around 17,000 auto accidents happen daily that injure around 7,500 people and take the lives of about 100. Individuals who sustain injuries in car crashes often find themselves stuck in the hospital for days, weeks, or longer where they must undergo medical care that can be invasive and expensive. Overall, being hurt in an accident of any kind can totally uproot your entire life, causing you and your family members unneeded stress and turmoil.
Pedestrians are especially at risk when traveling on busy roadways. Unfortunately, over half of reported pedestrian crashes in the United States are caused by the actions of inattentive and negligent drivers.
