In a car accident with someone following you too closely?

In driver's education, people are taught about stopping times and distance. Everyone who has a license should know that it takes time for a car to come to a complete stop, particularly when that vehicle is traveling at a high speed. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to see some drivers in New York following other vehicles too closely. If you've been involved in a car accident with someone who was riding your tail, you may have legal recourse. 

Committing traffic violations is a form of negligence. These violations put others at risk, which is why law enforcement officials take them seriously and are on the lookout for offenders. Following too closely is a known traffic violation. If you can prove that the driver who hit you was not at a proper distance from your vehicle when the accident occurred, you may be able to establish that he or she was negligent and therefore is accountable for any losses you suffered in the wreck. 

Proving that a traffic violation like this was responsible for your crash is not always easy. There are those cases that are cut and dry, where cause is quite obvious, but there are others where a number of factors may have come into play. If you are not sure if you have a case, an experienced attorney will have the ability to investigate the matter and help you figure out if pursuing a civil claim would really serve your best interests.

Car accident cases can be challenging. That does not mean that victims should walk away and try to figure things out on their own. With help, victims of collisions resulting from traffic violations can do everything possible to seek compensation for their losses, even if that means taking the matter to a New York civil court.
