New York City councilman says barriers may prevent car accidents

A particular sidewalk in New York became the rather chaotic scene of a recent traffic incident. Car accidents happen somewhere in the city nearly every day, and some, like this one, involve pedestrians. There were several witnesses to the recent collision; one 52-year-old man, a restaurant owner, came out of his establishment to render aid to those involved.

When the debris is cleared: Seeking justice after car accidents

New York highways are undoubtedly some of the busiest and most heavily traveled in the nation. One never knows when another driver's negligence will result in a motor vehicle collision. The effects of car accidents generally do not end upon impact; in fact, sometimes consequences last a lifetime.

Car accidents involving teenagers always especially tragic

Many New York parents hesitate to allow their teenage children to obtain drivers' licenses. Reasons vary, but most worry their children will get into car accidents and suffer injuries or worse. Highways are full of minors who drive, however, and sorrow is often intensified when motor vehicle collisions result in their harm.

How to access support resources after New York car accidents

Serene, quiet and nearly empty are definitely not words the average person would use to describe a typical traffic scene in New York. In fact, most would say it's quite the opposite -- often cluttered and chaotic. One of the problems with high-traffic areas is that the more vehicles there are on the road, the greater the likelihood is for car accidents to occur.

Car accidents often lead to post-collision financial strains

New York is likely one of the busiest places on the continent. Traffic flow is almost constant, and navigating state highways is often a challenge akin to working one's way through an elaborate, complex labyrinth. On any given day, motorists, pedestrians and merchants may hear horns blaring, people shouting and sirens whirring as daily life unfolds in all corners of the state. All too often, the sounds of brakes screeching, glass shattering and metal crunching is also part of the audible landscape of New York, because many car accidents occur here.

Some New York car accidents are shrouded in mystery

When a motor vehicle collision occurs in New York, the exact cause is not always immediately apparent. In fact, some car accidents require lengthy police investigations before questions regarding who might be to blame can be answered. A recent incident occurred that has resulted in contrasting stories being told by police versus one young man's mother.

Car accidents not uncommon during rush hours in New York

New York, like many other states, is comprised of various highway systems that are often laden with traffic, especially in early morning hours as thousands of people try to get to work on time. Car accidents often occur, especially at crossroads and other road areas often considered dangerous. Sometimes, however, accidents also occur in more unlikely locations, such as a recent crash that happened along the West Hempstead branch of the LIRR train route.

Car accidents often lead to undue financial strain

New York is known for many things, one of which is high-volume traffic. It's logical to assume that the more vehicles sharing the road, the higher chances are that car accidents will occur. In reality, someone is injured in some location in this state and throughout the nation every single day because of motor vehicle collisions.

Car accidents like this one not easily forgotten

An off-duty police officer and an off-duty firefighter in New York are being hailed for their volunteer rescue efforts after a serious motor vehicle collision on the Long Island Expressway. Car accidents sometimes involve sudden, unexpected fires, as this one did. The crash occurred on a recent Wednesday morning, and witnesses say the two off-duty workers were like guardian angels who appeared just in time to come to the aid of those involved.

With every new year comes more car accidents

Many New York residents have had the misfortune of being injured in motor vehicle collisions as the new year gets underway. Such car accidents have occurred for various reasons, many including poor road conditions and/or reckless drivers. One recent incident is said to have involved multiple vehicles and possibly some pedestrians.
