Driver Errors and Omissions
In the case of a car accident, our lawyer seeks the negligence of the other party in the driver’s fault. Our experience allows us to quickly assess the facts and identify driver mistakes such as speeding up, ignoring road rules, driving while intoxicated or experiencing interruptions, binding, and failure to generate traffic that has road rights. Proving a mistake, on the other hand, will completely change the nature of your case.
Rear collisions usually cause damage to the main car. The speed and size of the offending vehicle are two factors that indicate the extent of damage occurring to the lead car. However, even if a car of the same size is involved and traveling at a distance of 20mph, serious neck injuries such as whiplash or spinal injuries are usually the result. Unfortunately, we also see very serious spinal lesions that result in paralysis.
The more we meet cases where the other side is asleep at the wheel at the time of the accident. This type of case typically involves truck drivers and commercial vehicles that are usually always driving when tired. DOT U.S. recently reduced the number of hours it takes the truck driver to drive behind the wheel in a week from 82 to 70 hours. Obviously, such incidents result in serious injuries and deaths, and experienced personal injury lawyers are essential to ensure maximum recovery.
Crossing collisions will usually lead to side trauma or “T-bone” based accidents. The blunt force from the side can cause serious injury and even death. There are many reasons why collision crashes can happen, which varies from drunk driving, SMS while driving, street rage, driver fault, and even traffic light disturbance.
Speeding & Reckless Driving
Accelerating and reckless driving are two very big contributors to the crash in New York state. Excessive speed reduces the ability of the driver to respond and control their vehicle. Aggressively changing lanes and violating road rules often result in collisions with innocent riders. Our experienced team will investigate and bring facts to light proving negligence and cause and effect.
Road Damage & Design Roads are negligent
While these causes are unusual as the others, they remain. Our New York crash lawyer has seen several instances where the cause of the accident was caused by debris from construction on the highway or a neglected highway design during construction. Other road defects include traffic lights/control failures. Our legal team will hire experts to help build a strong case for your recovery.
Inattentive care & repair
These causes usually appear in the context of commercial vehicles, such as trucks, and semi-trucks. DOT has mandated general maintenance guidelines that require commercial vehicles to be feasible, ensuring everyone’s safety on the road. Negligence in maintaining proper road trucks is the cause of personal harassment that a lawyer harasses. Common examples of such negligent maintenance and repair are bald tires, used brakes, and non-lubricated ball bearings.
The driver is disturbed
While we’ve covered SMS while driving and using mobile phones, there are some other troubling drivers we’ve ever encountered, such as: using GPS devices, changing radio channels, reading books, reading billboards, eating food, drinking coffee, refocusing the mirror. , apply makeup or fix hair etc …, all while driving. Turning your eyes off the streets for 4 seconds can be the difference between life and death. We will investigate facts and circumstances to determine the cause of the interruption.
Manufacturer of Disabled Auto & Product Liability
Another category of causes of car accidents is the legal doctrine of product liability. In such cases, our experienced lawyers focus on the manufacturer of the vehicle to prove some manufacturer defects. In the past, the news focused on mass recall of Takata airbags. This is just one example of the case we are investigating where the explosion of a defective air sac can cause very serious injuries, including deaths, drivers and passenger cars.
We succeed in cases involving the spread of failed airbags, defective seat belts, and some other reminiscent products.
New York Laws on-Fault Insurance Claims
Under New York law, every insurance policy provides what is known as an insurance coverage without error. This type of coverage exists to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and other necessary costs due to accidents regardless of who is at fault for the accident. This coverage usually also extends to you if you get hit by a car or other vehicle while outside the vehicle insured as a pedestrian. To be eligible for recovery, you must file your claim within 30 days of the accident.
