CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY NEW YORK CITY

Traffic Accidents

Our car accident attorneys in New York City represent the victims of traffic accidents. Traffic is one of the top causes of accidents in the United States and can result in injuries to drivers and their passengers. The injuries suffered in a traffic accident can range from minor cuts and bruises to major injuries such as fractures, amputations and, in some cases, death.

The injuries suffered in traffic accidents can have devastating consequences and force victims to miss extended time at work, face high medical bills which may not be covered by insurance and leave individuals in constant pain for the rest of their lives. Fortunately, victims who have suffered any of the aforementioned hardships may be able to recover compensation for the damages they have suffered by filing a traffic accident lawsuit with the help of our car accident attorneys at Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool And The Law Office Of William A. Gallina, LLP.

Who Can File A Lawsuit For Traffic Injuries?

In order to have grounds for a traffic accident claim, your car accident attorney in New York City must be able to prove that the driver who caused the accident acted negligently, violating their duty of care to drive safely and responsibly. A duty of care is the legal obligation that drivers have to act with a certain degree of caution when operating a vehicle. When a driver violates their duty of care and causes an accident, they may be found liable for any injuries that occur. The following may constitute a violation of a driver's duty of care:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless Driving
  • Illegally Changing Lanes
  • Tailgating
  • Driving Under The Influence Of Alcohol
  • Driving While On Drugs

A violation of duty of care is not in and of itself grounds for a lawsuit. Your car accident attorney in New York City must also be able to prove that the negligent driver's actions were the direct cause of the victim’s injury. For instance, an individual injured in a traffic accident does not have grounds for a lawsuit if the driver responsible for the accident was driving under the influence, but the victim caused the accident. The negligent party must have been the direct cause of the accident and the injury. In addition to proving causation, the victim must also be able to show that they suffered damages resulting from their accident to have a valid lawsuit. Damages suffered in a traffic accident can be either economic or non-economic. Economic damages are any kind of monetary loss caused by the accident, such as lost wages, medical bills or property damages. Non-economic damages are considered long-term pain and suffering, emotional trauma or loss of life's enjoyment.
