Bronx Neighborhood Receives 20 MPH Slow Zone Due to High Rate of Fatal Car Accidents

November 29, 2011 – According to the New York Daily News, a Bronx neighborhood with the highest rates of car accident deaths has received the first 20 mph slow zone.  Community Board 3 has seen its fair share of car accident injuries and deaths. Between the years 2006 and 2010, there were 46 people who were either injured or killed. It has been said that this neighborhood is often used as a shortcut for drivers to quickly get where they want to go.  The 20 mph slow zone has been designated to several residential blocks in the Claremont section of the Bronx, between West Farms Road and Southern Boulevard.  When you have been seriously injured as a result of someone else’s careless or reckless actions behind the wheel, then you could be entitled to compensation. You should speak to a Bronx car accident lawyer to learn what legal options are available.  You may be able to collect compensation that addresses your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering and more. A lawyer who handles car accident claims can determine not only the compensation you may be entitled to but he or she may also assist you with collecting evidence and completing all of the complex paperwork.
