Car Accidents in New York

Intersections are some of the most dangerous places on our roads, with a large percentage of collisions happening in these areas. According to statistics, approximately 40% of all car accidents involve intersections. Drivers are supposed to make sure that they are paying close attention to the roads around them so that accidents can be prevented in these areas. Car accidents occur at intersections due to a wide array of reasons, such as the following:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Speeding
  • Fatigued driving

If you have sustained harm in a car accident, you will need to prove that another party is to blame for your accident. This is not always easy to do, which is why speaking with an attorney is in your best interests.

It can be challenging to come to terms with a car accident on New York roads. In many cases, liability for an accident that occurs at an intersection is not as cut-and-dry as expected. This means that the other party and their insurance company might try to pin the blame on you even when you know that you are not at fault for an accident. If you have been hurt in a collision and wonder where you can turn, you should speak with a Queens car accident attorney as soon as possible.
