New York Auto Accidents

When accidents involving multiple vehicles occur, multiple victims usually sustain serious injuries and heavy damage to their cars. If you were responsible behind the wheel, then you would not be held liable. This means you will be entitled to collect financial compensation for your damages from both your insurance company and the at-fault driver. 

A publication distributed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveals that the United States has seen an 11% rise in car accidents since 2015. As our country’s population continues to grow by leaps and bounds, the number of inexperienced, angry, new, careless, preoccupied, and reckless drivers on the roadways continues to grow along with it. New Jersey’s overcrowded roadways are just one of the numerous reasons for the elevated rate of motor vehicle crashes.
