NY Car Accident Lawyers Seek Financial Compensation for Drivers & Pedestrians Injured in NYC Car Crashes

Car accidents are one of our nation’s least-discussed epidemics. Every year, motor vehicle accidents kill nearly 43,000 people in the United States and injure tens of thousands more. Tragically, most car accidents are preventable. If not for the carelessness of one of the drivers involved, most accidents would never have happened.

We have obtained millions of dollars in compensation for motor vehicle accident victims and their families in NYC and throughout New York. Contact us now to see how we can help you.

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:
