Causes of Car Accidents

Guidance from Trusted Long Island Car Accident Lawyers

Accidents on the road are an unfortunate reality for drivers that can lead to financial hardship, injury, and even loss of life. Some of these accidents are caused by factors that are largely of our control, such as weather and failing vehicles. However, when the irresponsibility of a driver causes a collision, that negligence deserves to be answered for.

At Gruenberg Kelly Della, our team understands that accident victims are not always aware whether or not negligence played a key role in their accident. That is why we always conduct our own investigations in car accident cases, call upon expert witnesses and consult with medical professionals to ensure that our clients' claims for compensation are both thorough and compelling. Our diligence has allowed our Long Island car accident attorneys to recover more than $100 million on behalf of our clients.

We can help you establish the negligence in your case and aggressively pursue the relief you deserve. Contact us today to learn more.

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Safe and law-abiding drivers have the obligation to exercise vigilance and best practices behind the wheel to ensure the well-being of others on the road. When they fail to do this, others are put at considerable and sometimes even life-threatening risk.

Common negligence found in car accident claims includes:

  • Impaired driving (fatigue, intoxication, etc.)
  • Distracted driving (texting, phone calls, etc.)
  • Failing to signal a turn or lane change
  • Failing to follow traffic signs and lights
  • Following too closely behind other drivers (tailgating)
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding

If you believe one of these actions—or any other negligent driver action—contributed to the accident that hurt you, then we are ready to hear from you. Our Long Island car accident attorneys are prepared to everything we can to demonstrate how the reckless actions of those responsible call for the compensation needed to put your injury behind you.
