New York officials launch annual campaign to limit car accidents

For the third consecutive year, New York City officials launched their "Dusk and Darkness" campaign. It is an extension of the Vision Zero Action Plan that was created in 2014, and it aims to eliminate deaths and injuries on New York roads. Accident statistics of previous years show a definite increase in car accidents during the winter months. However, the Dusk and Darkness campaign proved successful in limiting the traditional end-of-year spike in traffic fatalities.

Car accidents change lives of injured Good Samaritans

Two New York men are recuperating in the Erie County Hospital after they were both struck by a car several weeks ago. They were members of a crew working on the Kingston Expressway when they unexpectedly became involved in the aftermath of two car accidents. One of the crashes put them both in the hospital.

Crash survivors speaks out on distracted driver car accidents

There are many types of distracted driving demonstrated by New York drivers and others around the nation. Whether it is texting, talking on a cellphone, changing a radio station or eating, these activities can take one's focus off the road and lead to car accidents. A survivor of an accident involving a distracted driver recently communicated the dangers of distractions to young drivers in Chautauqua County.

Criminal charges expected following fatal New York car accident

In New York, there are a variety of different transportation options. While most are typically relatively safe, such as using a livery driver, there are negligent people who can put the lives of many at risk by making poor choices. In fact, a man is now accused of drunk driving after he allegedly caused a car accident that resulted in a fatality.

Car accidents: 3 dead following Long Island wrong-way crash

All the boroughs of New York City are known for having heavy traffic during most times of the day. The sheer volume of vehicles on the roads, streets and highways often lead to frequent car accidents. Certainly, accidents are more likely when a motorist does not adhere to proper safe driving guidelines. A father and son recently lost their lives when a wrong-way driver struck their car in a Long Island accident.

Car accidents: 1 dead, 2 injured following Ulster County crash

Many New York residents and others around the nation love sports cars and enjoy driving them at high rates of speed when possible. However, most small-town roads are not designed for high-speed driving. Car accidents are nearly inevitable when a vehicle traveling so fast loses control. A recent crash in Ulster County claimed the life of one driver and injured two others.

New York car accidents: Mom killed, boy injured at bus stop

While most people in New York know of the risk they take when they use roadways -- either in a commercial or private vehicle -- most feel relatively safe while standing on the sidewalk. Unfortunately, a recent crash may have some people questioning whether they too may be involved in car accidents while waiting for the bus. A young boy was seriously injured in the accident while his mother was killed.

Victims of car accidents must be compensated for serious injuries

Fatal accidents in New York City are sometimes tainted by an extra measure of horrific violence not seen elsewhere. That is especially true when a driver ignores the speed limit and traverses city streets at a high rate of speed or otherwise drives recklessly. Innocent victims injured in local car accidents are best served by consulting an experienced personal injury attorney who is deeply familiar with the claims and litigation procedures in the city.

Car accidents involving runaway vehicles increase in frequency

A distinctly different kind of vehicular accident is occurring with more frequency both in New York City and nationwide. It involves a driver losing control of the vehicle to the extent that the vehicle goes over the sidewalk and crashes into pedestrians and even storefronts or homes. The operator in such car accidents often claims ignorance as to how he or she lost control, although one fairly predominant reason given is that the gas pedal became stuck and could not be stopped from uncontrollable acceleration.
