Weitz and Luxenberg Can Help Car Accident Victims
Personal Injury from Car Accidents
In New York State alone, 1,456 people lost their lives driving in 2006; A full 10.5 percent of those come from Suffolk County, Long Island. In fact, Long Island has the highest car accident fatality rate in the state, and NHTSA’s list of the Top 10 New York counties for fatal car crash accidents showed that Suffolk County on Long Island ranked No. 1 (152 deaths) in 2006. Suffolk County also ranked No. 1 for alcohol-related fatalities (64) and motorcyclist fatalities (24).
Main causes of car/automobile accidents:
There are several different factors that lead to a car accident. Some of these include:
- Distracted Drivers-cell phone use, texting, “rubbernecking”…
- Driver Fatigue
- Drunk Driving
- Aggressive Driving
- Inclement Weather
Nearly anything can distract a driver from the road, and as our culture becomes increasingly comfortable with multi-tasking and portable entertainment, it's only going to get worse. The fact that most family vehicles now come with DVD drives and mp3 player docks is indicative of just how much modern society sees the car as an extension of its living room. With video chat on smart-phones, GPS systems, and other technology joining the console, this problem is only going to get worse.
And these are just the new distractions within the car. The old problem of simply paying attention to every element on the road remains.
