Being aware of the actions and driving patterns of others is one way to stay safe on the road. However, when other drivers are acting in a reckless or illegal manner, no amount of vigilance will keep other drivers and passengers safe. A recent fatal accident in New York made news as one driver now faces serious criminal consequences for his apparent role in the crash.
No court case, criminal or civil, may be as cut and dried as people may initially believe. Any case, even one that is seemingly simple, can grow more complicated as it unfolds. Anyone in New York who feels they may need to pursue a personal injury complaint after a car accident will want be aware of the components of a case and how those components may affect how that case unfolds.
