What to do after getting in a car accident

Getting into a car accident is typically a nightmare scenario for everyone involved. Even if no one is injured, the experience is jarring and frightening. However, there are several steps that New York drivers can take following an accident to ensure everyone's safety and to bolster their car insurance claim.

How car accidents happen

There are a number of reasons why automobile accidents happen. The driver may have control over some of them. Other circumstances appear out of the blue. For example, when someone is driving down the road in upstate New York and a deer runs out in front of them, an accident can happen. The driver cannot control which way a deer goes or when a deer is going to appear. It's this unpredictability that makes animals dangerous to drivers.

Safety group cites speeding as big contributor to traffic deaths

Highway commuters in New York might feel the need to drive fast, but speeding plays a significant role in traffic fatalities. A new report from the Governors Highway Safety Association seeks to renew the focus on the risks of speeding, especially because society seems to condone driving over the speed limit. Drawing upon current data and research, the association concluded that speeding contributes to almost one-third of total traffic deaths.
