Car Accidents in New York 

Highways are some of the most dangerous places on New York roads where the largest percentage of accidents happen every year. In just one year’s time, in fact, hundreds of thousands of people are injured in these accidents due to the negligence of others. Because drivers are more likely to speed and engage in distracted driving on our highways, these accidents are more likely to lead to serious harm than many other accidents throughout the state. If you have suffered harm as a result of a car crash, it is important that you have the help of a legal advocate on your side.

Being hurt in a New York car accident can impact your life in a variety of ways, leaving you with many questions that you may not be able to answer on your own. For instance, what types of deadlines will you be expected to meet when it comes to your claim? Will your case be settled or will it make it all the way to trial? What should you say when you speak with the insurance company for the first time following your collision? These are questions that an accident attorney will be able to answer so that you are not left feeling alone.
