Many New York Car Crashes Are Preventable

Auto collisions are not uncommon in New York. In fact, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) reports that traffic collisions in Nassau County result in an average of 842 trips to the emergency room, 83 hospitalizations, and six deaths every week.

Many car crashes are preventable and occur due to driver error or negligent driving. Some of the most common causes of auto collisions include:

  • Driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Speeding
  • Failure to follow traffic signals and signs
  • Failure to yield the right-of-way
  • Unsafe passing
  • Tailgating and following too closely
  • Texting and driving
  • Driving while distracted
  • Driver fatigue and falling asleep at the wheel
  • Reckless driving
  • Road rage

Injuries Sustained in a Collision May Lead to Significant Costs

A car crash can lead to life-threatening injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Amputation injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries

These injuries can leave a person unable to work or live their life as they did before the collision. Injuries may also require months or even years of expensive medical treatment. The financial losses from a significant auto collision can create a massive financial burden in the victim’s life.

Through a personal injury case, you may be able to recover compensation for the costs your injuries incur.

New York Law Regarding “Serious Injuries”

New York requires no-fault auto insurance. A claim through a no-fault insurance policy may cover basic losses, such as medical bills, but it does not compensate an injured person for their pain and suffering and other damages.

Pursuing a personal injury case against a liable third party may allow an injured person to recover compensation for all of their damages. In order to recover compensation through a New York injury lawsuit, your or your loved one’s injury must be classified as a “serious injury.”

New York Civil Insurance Law (INS) §5102(d) lists what types of injuries are considered serious injuries for the purpose of a personal injury case. A serious injury is one that involves:

  • Death
  • Fractured or broken bones
  • Significant disfigurement
  • Dismemberment
  • Miscarriage of a fetus
  • Permanent loss of an organ, function, or body system
  • Permanent substantial limitation of use of a body part
  • Significant impairment of a body function or system
  • Non-permanent injury that prevents the injured person from performing normal tasks for 90 out of the 180 days following their injury
