New York Auto Accidents
Car accidents throughout the Empire State injure tens of thousands of individuals per year. There are collisions that end in severe injuries that seriously impact the lives of victims, while others only end in minor injuries. However, those who are substantially hurt often have their entire lives upended. For example, suffering a spinal cord injury can cot you a lot of time at work, and keep you in the hospital or at home recovering for months at a time. You may never be able to go back to how your life was before your crash. This is something no one should ever have to go through, however, it happens all the time. Also, the costs related to medical care for a serious car crash injury can range in the tens of thousands of dollars, which is more than the average American has lying around. Some of the leading factors in automobile collisions that take place across New York include:
- Drivers who are intoxicated by drugs/alcohol
- Distracted driving
- Drivers traveling at unsafe speeds
- Car wrecks involving several vehicles
