Negligence in Weather-Related Car Accidents 

The chances of being involved in a car accident increase significantly when the weather conditions are poor. Ice, snow, sleet, fog, and heavy rainfall create dangerous conditions such as poor visibility and slippery road surfaces. Drivers are therefore required to take extra precautions to ensure safety while driving in poor weather conditions. For example, you should adjust your speed and turn on your headlights to increase visibility. 

While bad weather creates dangerous driving conditions, drivers who don’t take precautions can be held responsible for causing accidents. Drivers may be held liable for: 

  • Failure to maintain their vehicles e.g. for driving with a vehicle with worn tires in bad weather conditions 
  • Driving at a speed that is not considered safe for the weather conditions 
  • Improper tire inflation 
  • Failure to scrape snow or ice off their windshield

Accidents related to poor weather conditions can also be the result of poor road conditions. For example, a car may roll down an embankment and cause serious injuries as a result of a broken guardrail. If the guardrail had been intact, it may have prevented the car from rolling down the embankment after losing control. The government agency responsible for repairing and maintaining the guardrail can be held liable for the damages in this accident.

What is Personal Injury?

If you’re injured as a result of a negligent third party, you may be entitled to compensation due to the damages you’ve experienced — either directly through the responsible party or their insurance company. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer will focus on tort law while seeking economic and non-economic damages for their clients — whether or not the target is a multi-million dollar award.

Personal injuries are classified as injuries to the body, mind, and emotions of an individual. When you suffer an injury because of another party, you experience turmoil, and your quality of life will change. Some victims experience loss of enjoyment of life, and even depression.

It’s important to speak with mindful attorneys who have the wisdom to handle your case effectively. Personal injury suits are filed against individuals or entities that cause harm due to recklessness, negligence, misconduct, or liability.

What Sets Us Apart?

Our attorneys and staff are competent, compassionate, and committed to seeking the maximum fair and appropriate compensation for all of our clients. We fight to win, not to quickly settle and move on to the next case. Our firm will make sure that you are properly advised of all of your options while giving you the proper legal advice to make the right decision for yourself and your family. We are willing to go above and beyond to meet your expectations, whether it’s meeting with you after hours, on the weekends, at your home, in the hospital, or at the office. We will make ourselves available for you 24/7.

We have been dedicated to Personal Injury and helping our clients pursue justice for over 30 years.

Types of Personal Injury

Personal injuries can refer to injuries sustained due to dental malpractice, product liability, or assault claims, but they more commonly involve the following types of injuries:

Car Accidents

When your vehicle collides with another vehicle, a pedestrian, an animal, debris, or another stationary obstruction such as a tree, pole, or building, you may face significant injuries and expenses that often include medical treatment and vehicle repairs. Following a car accident that was no fault of your own, it is important to immediately begin working with a New York personal injury lawyer to seek fair and appropriate compensation.

Truck Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents involving a truck or tractor-trailer and caused by the recklessness of others will present additional complex factors that are not present in a regular car accident case. You can be certain that there will be attorneys representing the truck driver, which is why you should partner with a New York personal injury lawyer at our law office immediately.

Motorcycle Accidents

When your motorcycle is involved in a motor vehicle accident at no fault of your own, you will need help in your fight to be fairly compensated in your case. As a client of our law firm, you can be confident that we are bringing the fight to the insurance company.

Premises Liability

An injury from an accident caused by unsafe conditions on someone else’s property often involves a fall on a slippery or uneven surface. Other types of negligence or dangerous circumstances may also lead to an injury or death. In some cases, your accident could amount to a multi-million dollar settlement. Our law office of NY accident attorneys will be happy to guide you through this process as our client.

Dog Bite

Dog owners are generally determined to be liable if their dog hurts you or anyone else. New York personal injury law in this situation provides a means to seek compensation for your medical expenses, your pain and suffering, & much more.

Slip and Fall

A property owner could be liable for damages if you slip, trip, and fall on their property due to their negligence. Working with a qualified New York personal injury lawyer in this situation is important because the Queens, Nassau County, Suffolk County, or Long Island property owner that you file a claim against will certainly be represented by law firms who are trying to dismiss or settle your case for as little as possible.

Construction Accidents

An injury sustained due to working on a construction site can be life-changing or deadly. In many cases, such an injury will prevent your ability to continue working for some duration of time. Workers’ compensation is available for these types of accidents. Depending on the details of your case, you may also be able to file a lawsuit.

Wrongful Death

Death caused by negligence or intentional actions of another party is known as wrongful death. The NY accident attorneys at our law office are experienced in these cases and are ready to help you fight for the money you need.

Medical Malpractice

When you work with a licensed medical professional, you have every right to expect that they will take prudent and cautious steps to help you work towards a successful recovery. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. The New York personal injury attorneys at our law firm are ready to help you fight for fair compensation.
