New York City Car Accident Attorney
Causes of Car Accidents in Queens & NYC
People who died in accidents involving alcohol accounted for
31 percent of all traffic fatalities in 2012 - a 4.6 percent increase from 2011. Driving under the influence
is a criminal offense that endangers the lives of others. At Musa-Obregon
& Associates, we have experience defending the victims of car accidents
in which another driver was at fault.
Other common contributing factors to car accidents include:
- Driver fatigue / falling asleep at the wheel
- Cell phone use
- Reckless driving
- Driving too fast for conditions
Defending Auto Accident Victims
According to the National Highway Safety Administration, approximately
33,561 Americans were killed in car accidents in 2012. Of this number,
65 percent were the occupants of passenger vehicles. Additionally, motorcyclists
made up 15 percent of the total number of fatalities, and 17 percent were
pedestrians, cyclists, and other non-occupants. Only 4 percent were occupants
of large trucks or buses.
Because trucks are so much larger than traditional passenger cars, they
pose a special danger to other occupants of New York streets and highways.
Federal laws have been enacted to ensure that truck drivers and the companies
that hire them take extra caution to protect the safety of other drivers.
If you were the victim of an accident involving a large commercial truck,
contact a lawyer with experience in big rig accidents who can help ensure
that you receive the compensation to which you are entitled.
