New York Car Accidents With Out Of State Motorists By Michael Joseph on July 27, 2011

With New York’s major interstate highways and close proximity to other states, our New York car accident lawyers often deal with cases involving New York motorists who get hurt by out of state motorists. From our White Plains office, our White Plains car accident lawyers see numerous accidents involving drivers along I-287 from either New Jersey or Connecticut. These accidents occur all along the interstate in the towns of Port Chester, Rye, White Plains, Elmsford, Tarrytown, Greenburgh and Harrison.

New York drivers often fear being unable to sue the out of state motorist, because they don’t live in New York. However, New York’s vehicle and traffic law protects New York’s motorists and our New York accident lawyers are familiar with the unique issues involved in dealing with truck accidents and car accidents with out of state motorists.

New York Courts have jurisdiction over anyone involved in a car or truck accident in New York. Also New York’s vehicle and traffic law allows service of process to be effectuated on the Secretary of State for any out of state motorist.
