Motor Vehicle Accidents in New York
New York motor vehicle accidents are responsible for the fatalities of over 300 people across the state each year, according to reports. While many car accidents along average roads and highways are often severe, most crashes that involve off-road vehicles are almost always devastating. Such vehicles overturn easily and offer less protection than automobiles. When someone else causes your injuries or the death of a loved one, it is important to understand your rights, moving forward.
