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.
The negative effects of a car crash can be far-reaching. Even the most minor injuries often necessitate repeated medical visits. When neck or back strain is involved, it is likely a recovering victim will need time off work to recuperate. In fact, those who try to return to their normal routines too soon often wind up in worse conditions.
When medical bills start piling up and creditors start calling because other expenses are left unmet due to lack of income, life can get very stressful very quickly. Studies show stress slows the recovery process, and victims deserve compensation in order to support themselves and their families. It's understandable that frustration may set in, especially in situations where a recovering victim knows the accident in question might have been prevented were it not for another motorist's negligence.
