Dealing with road rage incidents in New York

New York is one of the heaviest populated cities in the country. Of course this means that the roads are clogged with vehicles of all kinds. Not every driver will follow the rules of the road. Nor will they operate their vehicle safely at all times. You are bound to encounter road rage at some point during your time living in New York. Because of this, you should know how to handle such an incident.

Spotting a distracted driver on the roads of New York

You might think it's difficult for drivers to get distracted when driving on the roads of New York because of all the congestion, but it still happens. Distracted driving is a leading cause of accidents in the Big Apple and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight. Here are some tips for spotting distracted drivers so you can avoid a tragic accident.

Recent road construction could have led to fatal accident

Recent road construction could have led to a fatal accident that took the life of a 3-year-old girl in the Bronx, New York. The accident happened on Saturday morning and left multiple family members injured. The accident occurred on Bruckner Boulevard shortly after 10 in the morning. The road was recently milled and is uneven.

If you experienced a car accident, you may have a brain injury

Car accident injuries can range immensely, from slight bruises and abrasions to broken and severed limbs. However, one of the most common and most easily missed injuries commonly suffered in a car accident is a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Did a cellphone distract the other driver in your accident?

Even in the best of circumstances, getting behind the wheel of a car poses risk of personal injury. When you combine that with an exacerbating factor, such as distraction due to texting or social media on a phone, the risk of a serious accident increases. Were you recently in an accident? Do you have reason to believe, either because of what you saw or heard, that the other driver was distracted by his or her cellphone when the accident occurred? If so, you should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney about the details of your accident as soon as possible.

Pedestrians injured by moving vehicles can incur serious injury

Traffic in New York can be quite dangerous. Because of scarce parking and aggressive driving, many people prefer to walk, bike or take public transportation (or taxis). While these methods of transportation may reduce your risk of a traffic accident, they don't eliminate it. Many times, an accident involves a motor vehicle and a pedestrian.
