Are you a NYC driver who occasionally tailgates, texts while driving, exceeds the speed limit or neglects to use their turn signal? If so, you are not alone.
Stop and think about how you drive your vehicle in NYC. How many of these bad driving habits do you practice?
Doing any one of these actions can cause you to hit another car, pedestrian bicyclist, or lose control of your vehicle. People who have been driving for a long time may do these things without even thinking about it. Alternately, some young drivers know they shouldn’t be texting while driving or exceeding the speed limit by 20 miles per hour or more but do it, anyway.
NYC car accidents caused by negligent or reckless drivers send hundreds of people to the emergency room every year. Serious injuries such as brain/head trauma, multiple broken bones and deep lacerations may force drivers and their passengers to spend weeks in a hospital recovering from their injuries. If you have suffered extensive physical injuries because a NYC driver engaged in poor driving habits, talk to a personal injury attorney at William Mattar today. We may be able to obtain compensation on your behalf to pay for your damages.
