New York Rules Of The Road Impose Liability On Negligent Drivers By Michael Joseph on March 11, 2013

New York’s rules of the road are powerful weapons that set firm standards for cars, trucks, motorcycles and buses that operate on New York’s roads. Our New York car accident attorneys have represented thousands of people who sustain serious personal injuries in car accidents. Our White Plains car accident attorneys have extensive experience in analyzing the rules of the road.

In car accidents where motorists collide at intersections or while changing lanes the careless driver often blames the driver who was simply driving straight and minding their own business. New York Courts recognize that a driver who has the right of way is entitled to anticipate that the drivers of other cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles will obey the traffic laws that require them to yield. Our attorneys have won numerous car accident cases with he said, she said, accidents by proving that the other driver violated a rule of the road and that our injured client was traveling at a lawful rate of speed, had the right-of-way with respect to her vehicle and did not have an opportunity to avoid the accident.
