New York Car Accident Lawyers
However, getting behind the wheel is a serious responsibility, and when drivers are negligent in their actions, the results can be catastrophic. Drivers who are distracted by talking on the phone, texting, or other dangerous activities do not show respect for the lives of those who share the road. Add into the mix those who take the wheel after a night of drinking and those who are racing to get to their next destination, and it’s clear that no matter how careful you are, another driver’s bad decision can put your life and your family’s lives at risk.If you have been injured in a car crash, contact the New York motor vehicle accident lawyers at Belluck & Fox now.

Traffic Accident Statistics in New York
In New York, especially for those of us living or working in New York City, we are fortunate to have a mass transit system that keeps many people from needing to drive as much as those in other parts of the country. However, that doesn’t mean we don’t have our fair share of accidents. In 2014, the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles reported that 299,452 crashes across the state left 160,497 people injured and 1,026 killed. New York City accounted for 66,554 of those total crashes.
The Department of Motor Vehicles lists three categories for the causes of car accidents:
Crashes with human factors accounted for about two-thirds of all collisions. Human factors include distracted driving, tailgating, failure to yield and speeding.
Crashes with environmental factors accounted for almost a quarter of auto accidents in New York. Environmental factors include slippery roads, animals, glare and other view obstructions.
Crashes with vehicular factors accounted for less than 5 percent of motor vehicle accidents. Some of the most common vehicular factors in crashes are defective brakes, tire failures and steering failures.
No matter the cause of the crash, if you have been injured in an auto accident, an experienced attorney can help you properly document your case and determine what options you have for seeking compensation.
The Most Common Types of Car Crashes Are Caused By:
Whether you are sitting in traffic in Midtown Manhattan or cruising on the open road along Interstate 87 north of Albany, a serious car wreck can happen when you least expect it. Your vehicle could be hit from behind by a driver who didn’t brake in time, or an animal could jump into the road without warning.
The following are common types of car wrecks that result in serious injuries:
Rear-end crashes make up almost half of all collisions involving two or more vehicles, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. These crashes often involve a distracted driver who is not paying attention and slams into the vehicle ahead of him, or a driver who suddenly hits the brakes and is struck from behind by someone who may be following too close.
T-bone collisions occur when one vehicle slams directly into the side of another vehicle. These types of crashes often occur at intersections because one driver ran a stop light or failed to yield at a stop sign.
Sideswipe crashes often occur when one driver is not paying attention and veers outside his or her lane, swiping another vehicle in the process. Drivers can be knocked off the road or pushed into oncoming traffic when they are sideswiped by another vehicle. Continue reading…
