After a serious car accident, get help so you can begin recovering financially.

When a car crash happens and someone is seriously hurt, it is crucial to immediately get help to begin the financial recovery process. Auto collisions can have huge costs to an injured victim including vast medical bills, a damaged vehicle, and lost income from missed work.

Learn More About Car Accidents

Automobile accidents are an unfortunately common part of life. A February 2014 report published by the Institute for Traffic Safety Management and Research provides that in 2012 alone, there occurred 294,757 motor vehicle crashes across the entire state; over 169,000 people involved in these crashes sustained non-fatal injuries, and 1,163 were killed as a result.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention even claim motor vehicle crashes as one of the leading causes of death in the United States.

It is a sad reality that these accidents occur every day. For those hurt as a result of another’s negligence, a car accident lawyer can help provide the information necessary to file a claim to recover compensation for injuries.

Types of Car Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents may occur in a variety of ways, and while using a multitude of different types of transportation.

Some common types of car accidents include:

  • head-on collisions, in which two cars collide with one another while moving forward.
  • rear-end collisions,which occur when one car is struck by another from behind.
  • angle/side collisions, in which one car is struck by another vehicle from the side or from another angle.
  • hit-and-run accidents, after which the party liable for the accident fails to stop and identify him- or herself.
  • and, drunk driving accidents.

Furthermore, accidents may occur as a result of a car striking another type of vehicle or pedestrians. Our car accident lawyers represent those injured in single-vehicle collisions, motorcycle accidents, car vs. bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and any other accidents involving moving vehicles.

Determining the Cause of an Accident

Motor vehicle accidents can arise from a variety of circumstances, as well as different actions taken by those involved.

Motor vehicle accidents may be the result of:

  • defective products that caused the driver to lose control.
  • poorly maintained roads.
  • texting or distracted driving by one or more parties.
  • driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol use.
  • failure to follow proper traffic rules.
  • and, any other negligent acts made by motorists or pedestrians.

In some cases, more than one factor may be present in a car accident claim (for example, a distracted driver may collide with a driver who failed to yield the right-of-way). Section 1411 of New York Code though allows drivers deemed partially liable for the accident to still file a claim to recover compensation for the remaining damages.
