Car accidents in New York are the cause of tens of thousands of injuries every year. Far too often, innocent people are forced to suffer the consequences of negligent and reckless drivers. Leading factors in automobile accidents that take place across our state include:

  • Drivers who travel too fast for road conditions.

  • Drivers who fail to yield.
