Car Accidents in New York
A crash involving a motor vehicle can change your life forever. Unfortunately, automobile collisions cost tens of thousands of injuries in New York every year. There are countless cases where innocent people are severely harmed as a result of collisions caused by negligent and careless drivers.
Car crashes are often caused by motorists who are impaired by alcohol, under the influence of drugs, speeding, or otherwise negligent. When motorists do not operate their vehicle safely and with consideration to others sharing the road, they can cause severe collisions that leave injured parties forever changed. It is all too common for victims to suffer severe spinal cord injuries, compound fractures, and even the loss of limbs in serious cases. Unfortunately, dealing with the aftermath of an accident is not something a person is able to prepare for. This is especially true if they suffer serious injuries that require extensive medical care.
When innocent people are harmed due to the careless and reckless actions of others, they often have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical care. This is not attainable for many people, leaving them without the medical treatment that they need to overcome their injuries.
