What You Need to Know About Car Accidents in Manhattan

Unfortunately, most of us are involved in at least one car accident in our lifetime, whether the accident was our fault or not. Fortunately, many of these accidents do not result in serious injury to anyone involved, however, this is not always the case. Car accidents frequently result in very serious injury, and if you’ve wrongfully sustained an injury in one, you should continue reading and reach out to our experienced Manhattan car accident lawyer today. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding car accidents and the claims process ahead:

What are the most common types of car accidents?

As you may imagine, there are several ways in which cars can crash. Rear-ending accidents are the most common, though this does not make them any less dangerous. Other common types of car accidents include T-bone crashes, head-on collisions, sideswipe accidents, and more. If you believe that you were wrongfully injured in a car accident, then you should strongly consider speaking with an experienced Manhattan car accident lawyer as soon as you can.

What are the most common causes of car accidents?

Car accidents happen for several reasons, though they are typically a result of negligence. Some of the most common types of driver negligence include the following:

  • Texting while driving
  • Driving while drowsy or fatigued
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Speeding
  • Failing to check before merging or changing lanes
  • Ignoring traffic lights or signs

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

If you are injured in a car accident, the first thing you should do is call the police. They will document the facts of the accident and call an ambulance to the scene. You should also ensure you get the other driver’s insurance information and take pictures of the scene of the accident. If possible, obtain the contact information of anyone who witnessed your accident. Once you are treated in the hospital, your doctor should give you a copy of all medical documentation and bills regarding your injury. We can use this to help prove your claim. Finally, ensure that you retain the services of an experienced Manhattan car accident lawyer. Our firm is ready to help fight for the compensation you deserve.
