The latest in technology can provide a number of benefits to vehicles. One of these goals is often a reduction in the risk of accidents. Yet, the rate of pedestrian accidents in New York has remained constant despite these changes. New York State’s Department of Health reports that the most recent data shows there were 312 deaths due to motor vehicles striking pedestrians annually. This number has remained fairly constant since 2001.
Car accidents occur daily but any vehicle is at risk of a crash. Accidents on public transportation can be even more fatal than other accidents, often ending in lost lives or severe injuries and disabilities. If you are in a bus accident, you have every right to pursue a lawsuit for your injuries. However, gathering the proper information will greatly help your chances at a successful claim.
