Auto Accidents in New York
Car accidents occur far too often in New York. Each year, thousands of people are left with severe injuries that result in the need for extensive medical care. Unfortunately, there are many accidents that are entirely preventable and continue to take place on our roadways.
When it comes to addressing the common causes of car crashes in New York, several factors contribute to their occurrence. Distracted driving remains one of the primary culprits, with activities like texting or talking on the phone diverting attention from the road.
Additionally, speeding plays a significant role as drivers exceeding designated limits have reduced reaction times and are more prone to losing control of their vehicles. Another prevalent cause is drunk driving, where impaired judgment impairs a driver’s ability to navigate safely through traffic. Other contributing factors include reckless driving behaviors such as tailgating and running red lights.
Unfortunately, car accidents often result in various injuries that can be both physically and emotionally devastating for those involved. We see many car crash victims left with traumatic brain injuries, concussions, soft tissue injuries, and other serious injuries that require medical care.
