How to prove driver negligence

Residents of New York who have been injured in a car accident should be aware of the factors that help a court determine whether another driver can be held responsible for a wreck. This is referred to as negligent driving, and while negligent driving has a broader definition in the minds of many people, it has a specific legal definition. Knowing how negligence is legally defined can help an injured person decide whether the court might consider his or her case.

Summer’s “100 Deadliest Days” a dangerous time to be on the road

As a New York motorist, you may find that navigating the state’s roadways is often easier during the summer months when you do not need to contend with ice, snow and similar highway hazards.

Some cars deadlier than others

In 2017, 37,133 Americans were killed in traffic accidents across the nation, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The accident rate is high even though new vehicles sold in New York and elsewhere have more air bags and accident avoidance technology than ever before. However, a report by iSeeCars.com found that some vehicles are racking up more fatalities than others.

  3. I cannot thank Brad and the entire Kammholz Rossi team enough. I am so glad that I made the decision to have Brad represent me. I received an injury at work that would be a life changing event for me and my family. I needed to find an attorney that would look out for me and my family. After meeting with a few law firms I chose Brad and his firm. Brad was truly concerned with my injury and what was best for me and my family. Too many of the law firms I met with were only concerned with what they could get from a settlement. Brad is truly concerned with what is best for you. He will listen to all of your thoughts and concerns, and advise you on what actions would be best. Trust is a very important part of a relationship in a legal action. I trusted Brad and his firm. I always knew that Brad truly was looking out for what was best for me and my family. You will not regret having Brad and his entire firm represent you. Everyone there is very pleasant, friendly, casual and yet professional. Their approach helps reduce the stress and tension that comes with a bad situation. Over the twenty two months that Brad represented me, we developed a friendship. I consider Brad a friend and look forward to continuing that friendship for a long time. On behalf of me and my family we cannot thank-you enough for everything that you and your firm have done for us. Truly the best decision made in a bad situation.
