Car Accident

Helping Car Accident Victims

email CONTACT THIS PRACTICE

Across the U.S., more than 33,500 people lost their lives driving in 2012. New York State alone accounts for 1,168 of them, almost double the nearly 600 fatalities in New Jersey.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2011 almost 10 percent of the car accidents that caused fatalities or personal injuries happened in Suffolk County, Long Island. The only counties that had more were Queens and Kings (Brooklyn).

Main Causes of Car 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
  • Speeding
  • 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.
