Auto and Car Accidents
The roads of Long Island and New York are congested and sometimes dangerous. Accidents happen all the time. In the best cases, everyone is physically well and the car takes the brunt of the impact. Other times, a personal injury suffered in a car accident can take a devastating toll on the quality of life. While some car accidents are only minor collisions, others leave victims unable to work and in constant pain. Injuries can vary and some can stay dormant for years, impacting the future of the victim. In these cases, a victim may be burdened with unforeseen medical bills and loss of income. In extreme cases, a person may even lose their ability to walk or take care of his or her basic needs.
If you were injured in a car accident, you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit for money damages. According to New York personal injury laws, car accident victims have the right to be compensated for personal injuries if they can establish that the accident was caused by the fault or negligence of another and they suffered “serious personal injury” as defined by the law. In a car accident case, examples of negligence may include:
- Running a red light
- Rolling through a stop sign
- Changing lanes when it is not safe to do so
- Making an illegal turn
- Driving too closely or tailgating
- Falling asleep while driving
- Excessive speed
- Texting or talking on a cell phone
