What to Know About Car Accidents in Manhattan

There are few things more devastating than being involved in a car accident due to no fault of your own. Unfortunately, car accidents happen every single day in Manhattan and throughout New York City, and if you are someone who has been hurt in one, you should strongly consider speaking with a competent Manhattan car accident lawyer today. Here are some of the questions you may have about car accidents and how our firm can help if you’ve been wrongfully injured:

What are the most common causes of car accidents in Manhattan?

At times, car accidents aren’t caused directly by driver negligence. For example, if someone gets caught in a snowstorm and loses control of their vehicle, it’s not quite the same as someone driving 20 mph over the speed limit and causing an accident. However, most car accidents are, in fact, caused by driver negligence. Some of the most common types of driver negligence that our firm sees are as follows:

  • Texting while driving
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Ignoring traffic signs or lights

What should I do after being hurt in a car accident?

If you are hurt in a car accident, you must try to document the incident to the best of your ability. This can include calling the police, getting the other driver’s insurance information, taking pictures of the scene of the accident, asking witnesses for their contact information, and receiving immediate medical treatment, and obtaining a copy of all medical documentation concerning your injury. Of course, if you were wrongfully injured, you should also retain the services of an experienced Manhattan car accident lawyer who can fight for your right to financial compensation.

What is the statute of limitations for car accident injury claims in New York?

The statute of limitations for most personal injury claims in New York is three years, meaning wrongfully injured parties must take legal action within three years of the date of their accident. If you need a legal team who is ready to begin fighting for you today, you’ve come to the right place.  Simply pick up the phone and give us a call.
