Causes And Types Of NYC Car Accidents

Car accidents usually involve human error. Drivers may be speeding, distracted, tired, or just ignoring the rules of the road.

But there are also hidden causes of accidents—even when only one driver is involved. Defective car parts, faulty roadway design, and poor road maintenance can all be very dangerous. Even if an auto accident seems like your fault, you may have a claim against someone because of these hidden dangers.

That is why consulting an experienced New York City personal injury attorney is so important. A knowledgeable attorney may advise a careful investigation and reconstruction of your Manhattan car accident.

The following is a list of some of the most common causes of accidents in NY:

  • Faulty roadway design
  • Poor maintenance
  • Speeding
  • Distraction, including mobile phone calls and texting
  • Fatigue
  • Alcohol & drug use
  • Aggressive driving
  • Pedestrian knockdown
  • Faulty roadway design
  • Faulty traffic flow devices
  • Ignoring road rules
  • Failure to adapt to weather conditions
  • Automobile design defects
  • Inexperience
  • Police chases
  • SUV rollover
  • Commercial vehicles
  • Unsafe work practices
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Defective auto parts and products
  • Collisions with emergency vehicles and trains
  • Lack of driver training
  • Poor operating procedures / lack of adherence to procedures
