According to the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 8.5 million people call the city’s five boroughs home. Add in the millions of commuters and tourists who descend upon the city each day and year and, on any given day, the population can swell to several million more. With so many people coming and going and often in a hurry, traffic accidents are bound to happen.

While many city residents take the subway to get around, many more walk, bike, or rely upon buses and taxis for their daily transportation needs. Along with the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Plaza and Manhattan’s towering skyscrapers, New York City is also notorious for honking horns, traffic congestion, and aggressive drivers.

According to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, distracted driving, failure to yield the right of way, and tailgating are among the leading causes of motor vehicle accidents throughout the state. In cases where the actions of a distracted, aggressive, or reckless driver result in a traffic accident; serious physical injuries and damage to motor vehicles may result.

In the wake of a car accident, those impacted may incur numerous expenses related to medical care, rehabilitative treatments, lost wages, and motor vehicle repair costs. Often, individuals who have suffered injuries feel like they’ve been wronged, but are at a loss for where to turn for help.
