New York City Car accidents seriously injure and kill thousands of people every day. They are the leading cause of death in the US for anyone under 34. They happen on routine trips to the grocery store, to work, to drop the kids off at school.
These grim statistics might lead you to conclude that a New York auto accident litigation is no more than a routine court case. It’s not. In fact, determining legal responsibility in an auto accident is anything but open-and-shut. Without experienced legal representation, the consequences of dealing with the aftermath of a serious auto accident could be one of the most traumatic experiences in your life.
Determining legal responsibility in a court of law requires careful accident reconstruction analysis and the ability to explain the often very technical findings of this analysis to a jury.
Further, rollovers cause more passenger deaths than any other type of New York City automobile accident. The causes are not always apparent and often involve defective brake systems, defective steering devices, defective tires and sudden accelerations.
