New York Motor Vehicle Accident
There are more than 100,000 motor vehicle collisions in the New York City metropolitan area each year, according to the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT). These crashes result in about 60,000 injuries, including injuries to drivers, passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists (about 50 percent higher than the national average).
New York is a high-density, fast-moving city with millions of people rushing to accomplish their daily business. Such a hurried environment causes drivers with little patience to make poor decisions, forgetting about the terrible consequences that might result from risky or dangerous driving behavior.
GET MEDICAL CARE AND LEGAL ADVICE IN ANY ACCIDENT SITUATION
If you or a loved one was involved in a car crash with a negligent or reckless driver, it is important to seek proper medical attention and legal advice right away.
Your injury may be more serious than you think even if you do not have bruises or broken bones. Even low-impact crashes can cause serious injuries, including brain and neck trauma such as whiplash or concussion. Experiencing dizziness, light-headedness, speech or hearing problems, or any sort of pain (no matter how minor) following a car accident warrants medical attention.
At the same time, the sooner you speak with an experienced lawyer, the sooner the accident scene can be inspected and witness accounts can be gathered with your potential injury claim in mind. Facts and evidence are fresh, and a claim can be filed quickly.
In some cases, the deadline for filing an injury claim is just a few days. Do not jeopardize your case. Speak with an experienced lawyer immediately.
