Being hurt in an accident can have a serious impact on a person's life. Besides the cost of having to go to the hospital for medical attention, people often have to take time off work to recover from accidents. Depending on the severity of a person's injuries, he or she may have to adjust to a dramatically new lifestyle or deal with the consequences of ongoing pain from neck or back injuries. One thing that victims of a car accident in New York should not have to expect is to get a bill for the damage to a negligent driver's car.
People living in cities across New York are likely aware at how congested and dangerous certain areas can be. With the number of residents, tourists and business people who flock to areas in Brooklyn, the Bronx and New York City every day, the likelihood of an accident remains too high. Drivers are often distracted or rushed, which can result in a serious car accident that involves other motorists and pedestrians.
