As the most populous city in the country, New York City inevitably has thousands of car accidents each year. Fortunately, most of these car accidents are so-called “fender benders,” and those involved – drivers and passengers – are able to walk away with minor injuries, if they are injured at all. But, unfortunately, much more serious car accidents occur in New York City every year as well. When these more serious collisions occur, drivers and passengers may suffer severe injuries and, in the worst-case scenarios, fatalities may occur.
The serious injuries that New York residents might suffer in a car accident can range from brain and spinal cord injuries to broken bones and “whiplash.” If the injury in question is more than just cuts and bruises, the injured victims may be looking at weeks or even months of necessary medical treatment just to attempt to get back to “normal.” However, the reality is that many accident victims who suffer serious injuries may never fully recover.
If the accident that resulted in injuries was caused by a driver who was negligent or reckless, why should the injured victim pay the medical costs that are sure to start piling up in the immediate aftermath of a car accident? A personal injury lawsuit may allow injured victims to recover financial compensation to pay for medical expenses, among other costs associated with the crash.
