Common Causes of Car Accidents

Determining the cause of a car accident is crucial in determining who is responsible for the crash and recovering full compensation. It can be a challenge to determine fault without the guidance of an experienced auto accident lawyer. Our seasoned car accident lawyer knows how to read between the lines and extract necessary facts that could support your claim.

Common car accident causes include:

  • Distracted drivers
  • Speeding or reckless drivers
  • Driving under the influence
  • Falling asleep behind the wheel
  • Failure to stop or yield

In New York, the responsible party in an accident is held accountable for the damages incurred. This is commonly done through their insurance company. However, if more than one party is at fault for the accident, New York follows a “pure comparative fault" rule.

The “pure comparative fault” rule means that the court will determine how much the plaintiff is entitled to and how much fault each party is responsible for. In the end, the plaintiff’s awarded amount will be reduced by the same percentage of fault they are determined to bear. For instance, if you are found 15% responsible for an accident, your awarded amount will be decreased by 15%.

Common Types of Car Accidents

Car accidents have a wide variety of types. Here are some of the most common accidents:

  • Head-on collisions
  • Sideswipes
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Multi-vehicle accidents

Car accidents can vary and our car accident lawyer understands that. We have vast experience in handling different cases, from rollovers to t-bone accidents and more. If you've been involved in any type of accident, our legal team is here to help you through the process.
