Car crashes

New York has some of the most congested and treacherous roads in America. Whether you are navigating the streets of our cities or driving on rural roads, you will be faced with hazards and aggressive drivers rushing to and from locations. In the best situations, a car will take most of the damage, leaving the passengers free from serious injury as cars are intended to do. In other situations, the crash is so severe that the occupants suffer from serious injuries, some of which can be devastating.

Pedestrian Accidents

When pedestrians navigate the sidewalks and streets of communities across New York State, they are at risk of being injured. In some unfortunate cases, they are struck by vehicles of all kinds. Even though municipalities take all precautions to protect the safety of its citizens, accidents happen. If you are hit by a vehicle as a pedestrian, you have no protection. Pedestrian accidents can lead to serious injury and even death. If you are seriously injured in a pedestrian hit, you need to contact an attorney.

Motorcycle crashes

The roads of New York State attract motorcycle enthusiasts from all over. Our state has a lot to offer anyone looking to get out on the open roads. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are on the rise. The number of injuries and deaths from motorcycle accidents has increased drastically in the last ten years. Motorcycles are difficult to see, difficult to follow, move quickly, and unless other drivers hear your motor, it is very difficult to avoid an accident.

Truck Collisions

New York State has some of the busiest roads in America. Vehicles of all shapes and sizes frequent the thoroughfares that connect villages to town and towns to cities across our great state. Some of our roads are dangerously congested, populated by aggressive drivers with little care for others’ safety. If you are involved in an accident, you could face a serious injury. When you are in a crash with a truck, the chances of serious injury rise dramatically.

Train & Bus crashes

Across New York State, millions of people use mass transit as their primary source of transportation. Dependability, affordability, and safety are just some of the many reasons people choose to use mass transit over owning and operating cars. People use buses and trains to get to and from locations in a timely manner. When we trust in the service of mass transit, we hope that they will take all precautions to ensure our safety. 

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycles are hard to see, hard to follow and offer the operator no protection if they were to be in an accident with a motor vehicle. If a cyclist was to get into a collision with a truck, car, or bus, the accident could lead to terrible results. If you were injured in a bicycle accident, you should contact an attorney. If you were involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and lost wages through the driver’s no-fault insurance policy. If you were injured because of the conditions of the road, you may be able to sue the municipality responsible for the maintenance of the street surface. If you have been seriously injured in a bicycle accident, you should contact an attorney immediately.

Injured Passengers

When we are passengers in a vehicle operated by someone else, we put our safety in his or her hands. Whether you are a passenger in a private car, taxi, train or bus, we are subject to the results of the driver’s actions. If the operator of the vehicle drove negligently, causing your injuries, you may have to explore your legal options. Accidents can be quite serious. They can leave you with serious injuries that can physically and financially burden you for years, if not the rest of your life. In car crashes, at least one driver is at fault.
