Motor Vehicle Accidents

The rules of the road are in place to help motor vehicles, including cars, trucks, and buses, share the road safely. However, accidents still happen, and those accidents can lead to significant injuries. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you may be dealing with overwhelming medical bills, lost wages due to time off work, emotional trauma, and other damages you deserve to be compensated for. You need an experienced and compassionate attorney who will make sure you receive that compensation and any other legal benefits to which you are entitled.

Motor Vehicle Accident Facts

Motor vehicle accidents are the number one cause of death by injury in New York State. In New York City in 2024, the leading cause of motor vehicle accidents by far was driver distraction or inattention, followed by failing to yield the right of way, which suggests that an overwhelming number of accidents could be prevented by drivers merely paying more attention.

Document and Preserve Everything: When you bring a motor vehicle case against another party, you need to prove that your injuries and any damages to your car were a direct result of the other driver’s actions. Taking pictures of your car, injuries, street names at the site of the accident, and any other evidence helps build and support the story that the accident caused the damages you are seeking compensation for.

Make a Police Report: A police report serves as a way to document that the accident happened at all. It also alerts the insurance company–both yours and the other driver’s. You need the other driver’s insurance company involved if you want to be compensated for repair bills. If the other driver was drinking or driving unsafely, they may also receive points or other penalties.
