Motor Vehicle Accidents Overview
Motor vehicle accidents account for nearly 3 million injuries annually. Commuter traffic and travel has continually increased throughout the years, which means there are more drivers on the road than ever. As the number of drivers has gone up, so too has the number of motor vehicle accidents. When two cars collide or crash into one another, the results can be fatal.
In the U.S., the number one cause of motor vehicle accidents is driver negligence. Instead of focusing their attention on the road before them, many drivers are distracted by other passengers, cell phones, and fatigue. Some drivers are also guilty of negligent driving behaviors such as:
- disobeying traffic signs
- making wrong turns
- failing to signal
- aggressive driving
- driving while under the influence
Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries
People who are involved in serious motor vehicle accidents are lucky to be alive. It is a proven fact that motor vehicle accidents can lead to serious brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burn injuries, and neck injuries. In some unfortunate cases, motor vehicle accidents have even caused wrongful death. In these cases, the most devastating fact is that death could have been prevented if the drivers involved in the accident were not negligent.
Severe motor vehicle accident injuries require immediate medical attention and treatment, especially if the injuries are catastrophic in nature. If the motor vehicle accident injuries are very severe, the victim may need ongoing medical care from physicians, specialists, and therapists. After being involved in an accident, some victims may have permanent disabilities that can limit their employment opportunities and change the course of their life forever.
Motor Vehicle Accidents and Personal Injury Law
If you sustained a serious injury during a motor vehicle accident, and the injury was caused by another driver’s negligence, you may be entitled to seek monetary compensation from the party at fault. New York personal injury law allows victims of negligence to file a civil lawsuit against liable parties to recover damages for their medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain, and emotional suffering.
