Common Causes of Car Accidents in Orange County, NY

Most New York car crashes are entirely preventable. Driver errors cause the majority of vehicle collisions and related injuries and deaths. Common errors include distracted driving, texting and driving, speeding, running red lights and stop signs, tailgating, reckless driving, drunk driving, and drowsy driving. Nondriver-related car wreck causes include defective vehicles, poorly maintained cars and roadway defects. Our attorneys can help you determine the cause of your car accident. Then, we can explain your rights and legal options based on the factors of your unique case.

New York Is a No-Fault State – What Does This Mean for Your Case?

In general, a car accident in the State of New York will lead to a first-party insurance claim under New York’s no-fault law. This law states that regardless of who caused the crash, injured parties will seek compensation from their own auto insurance providers. This is different from fault-based states, in which injured parties seek compensation from the at-fault party. If you have serious enough injuries, however, you can bring a claim against a third party. A fault-based claim can lead to greater compensation than a no-fault claim. Your injury must meet New York’s threshold for serious, or life-altering injuries to file this type of claim.
