Even though there are laws that require drivers to pass a driving test and obtain a driver’s license before they are legally allowed to drive, there is nothing physically stopping an unlicensed person from getting behind the wheel. Those who are unfamiliar with the rules of the road can pose a hazard to other drivers and can cause serious car accidents. As any motor vehicle accident attorney in New York knows, car accidents can a change lives in an instant.

Recently, a two-vehicle crash in Harlem resulted in several injuries and one death. A car attempted to make a left turn at an intersection, and crashed with a van. The accident caused both the car and the van to collide with a 44-year-old pedestrian, who was on the sidewalk. The passenger in the front seat of the car was pronounced dead at the hospital; the driver of the car and the two infant passengers, who were in the backseat, were hospitalized for minor injuries.

Those who have been seriously injured in a car accident that was caused by another driver may be able to bring a lawsuit and get damages for those injuries. In New York, a vehicle collision case generally has three parts: a no-fault insurance portion, liability, and damages. The no-fault portion ensures that injured parties can have their reasonable and necessary medical expenses paid, up to a certain amount. Liability is governed by the legal theory of negligence, and in New York, negligence can be apportioned to both drivers, including the plaintiff in the suit. A plaintiff will not be barred from bringing suit unless he was 100 percent negligent.

In the tragic Harlem accident, authorities have charged the driver of the van with operating a motor vehicle without a license and aggravated unlicensed operator. Bus accidents are another type of accident that happens frequently in New York, but D & A law are here to help and they are some of the best New York Bus Accident lawyers in the entire metro area.
