New York Car Crashes
According to a report issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the United States has seen an 11% rise in auto collisions in the past decade. Each year, more than 6 million auto collisions are reported throughout the nation that injure millions and take the lives of tens of thousands. Sadly, approximately 40,000 people lose their lives in car crashes each year. Negligent driving is the top cause of car accidents throughout the country, causing over 90% of reported collisions.
Negligent drivers are one of the main reasons injury-causing car crashes happen in New York. Whether it’s a driver who is texting, speeding, or simply not paying attention, their blatant carelessness toward others will most likely lead to avoidable collisions.
As our country’s population continues to grow, so does the amount of aggressive, inexperienced, inattentive, careless, and reckless drivers on our roads. Crowded roadways are just one of the many factors that contribute to the increased rate of auto collisions.
When two or more motor vehicles crash into one another, multiple victims can potentially become injured, and expensive property damage can occur. If you were obeying the driving laws when your crash happened, then you will not be held financially liable for any damages. You may also be eligible to bring a personal injury suit and collect compensation from your insurance company and the negligent party.
If you were hurt in a car crash caused by negligence, you possess legal rights toward financial compensation that could potentially help you recover. Medical care expenses, lost wages, costly vehicle repairs, and more may be paid for by way of financial compensation. Working with a lawyer may be your saving grace during this difficult time.
