Motor Vehicle Accidents

Bronx Auto Accident Attorney

Despite substantial safety improvements, motor vehicle accidents and the injuries they cause remain quite common. When no one is injured, New York’s no-fault accident laws govern claims and recovery. But when you’ve been hurt by another driver’s negligence, you’ll need legal help from an experienced Bronx auto accident attorney at the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lavin.

The common causes of injurious motor vehicle accidents are:

  • Negligence including failure to yield the right of way, following too closely, speeding, driving under the influence, and disregard for traffic signals and street signs;
  • Distractions including cell phones, radios, mp3 devices, reading, eating, applying makeup, and other distractions both inside and outside the vehicle; or
  • Failure to properly service and maintain a motor vehicle.

If you or your loved ones are the victims of a car accident, you deserve compensation for your injuries and other losses. Let our law firm pursue your case, holding the negligent parties responsible as we work to recover a fair settlement. Our goal is to recover compensation for your hospital bills, vehicle repair costs, medical expenses, lost wages due to missed work and beyond. Discuss your case with one of the most experienced New York City lawyers dealing in personal injury law. Contact the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lavin by calling 800-394-4216.

DEFECTIVE ROADWAYS AND EQUIPMENT

Some accidents involve factors external to drivers. A poor road design may cause or contribute to accidents. Construction debris or other items on the road also cause injury accidents. Other accidents are caused by defective equipment; brake failures and tire blowouts are common examples. Frequently, responsibility for a motor vehicle accident may not rest with a single party. And insurance companies are not always cooperative, resulting in a personal injury case that must be addressed in the courts. Juries may compare the negligence of several partially responsible parties and adjust damage awards according to the degree of comparative negligence.
