According to a recent Daily News article, traffic deaths in New York City are up by 44%, as the City is on track to face its deadliest year since 2014.

Over the years, the legal team here at the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny has handled countless wrongful death cases, and as tragic as they may be, if your loved one lost their life in an auto accident, winning a wrongful death claim on their behalf can help you attain the justice you and your loved one deserve. Continue reading to learn more about some of the most common causes of auto accidents and how our Manhattan car accident lawyer can help you recover compensation if you’ve been wrongfully injured in one or if your loved one lost his or her life in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do car accidents happen?

Car accidents occur for a variety of reasons, though typically, they’re a result of driver negligence. Motorists face a wide variety of distractions at all times, such as cellular devices in their possession. Additionally, drivers are frequently guilty of speeding, operating their vehicles while drowsy or intoxicated, and otherwise ignoring the rules and regulations of the road. All of these things frequently lead to serious accidents, injuries, and, in the worst cases, fatalities.

What should I do if I’m injured in a car accident or my loved one lost their life in one?

If you or your loved one has been harmed in an auto accident, the most important thing you can do is document the incident to the best of your ability and retain the services of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney who can fight for the compensation you and your family deserve. We have significant experience handling auto accident injury and wrongful death claims, and we can handle yours as well.
