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
