Common Causes of Brooklyn Car Accidents

Unfortunately, most car accidents can be attributed to negligent or unsafe driving. If you have been hurt in a Brooklyn car accident, you may be able to seek financial compensation. Our experienced team of Brooklyn car accident lawyers have found the most common causes of car accidents involve:

  • Distracted Driving kills over 3,000 people in car accidents every year. Distracted driving includes taking your eyes, hands, or mind off driving. Even if this happens only for a moment, it can cause a severe car accident.
  • Speeding is statistically proven to leave car accident victims with more serious injuries.
  • Road Rage is reckless and endangers everyone on the road.
  • Tailgating is a common cause of rear-end accidents, especially in congested cities like New York and the outer boroughs.
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI) slows the reaction time of a motorist if they need to avoid an oncoming vehicle or pedestrian.
  • Road Defects, including potholes, debris, and construction zones all lead to unsafe roads and driving conditions, contributing to motor vehicle accidents and injuries.

Who is Responsible for my Injuries After a Car Accident?

New York State is a no-fault state, which means that if you are injured in a car accident, insurance will step in first to cover the cost of your medical expenses, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. Instead of accepting the first offer from insurance, call The Barnes Firm and let our team of Brooklyn car accident lawyers help you get the best result possible for your claim.

  • Rideshare driver
  • Motorcyclist
  • Pedestrian
  • Bicyclist
  • Taxi driver
  • Bus driver
  • Truck driver
  • Other
