Mother of infant facing multiple charges after car accident

A New York driver who reportedly had her license suspended on 23 previous occasions allegedly admitted to police that she had smoked crack cocaine prior to running down a bicyclist and then driving off. She is now facing multiple charges and is being held on bail of $100,000 while she awaits a scheduled preliminary hearing. The 32-year-old mother of a baby that is only a week old was arrested several days after the car accident when she attempted to admit herself to a hospital.

New York car accident leads to 2 deaths

Two individuals recently died in New York, leaving surviving family members and friends grieving over the loss of their loved ones.

Driver dead, passenger seriously injured in single-car accident

Under New York law, when a car leaves the roadway and hits a telephone pole, that will almost always be ruled negligence on the part of the driver. Under extremely unusual facts, such as a massive breakdown of the car's systems, the driver may be exonerated from a finding of negligence in causing the car accident. Even in that situation, however, the driver may be found responsible for not maintaining the vehicle and thus liable to any injured parties for that carelessness. Another point often discussed in these blogs is that the driver is virtually always going to be found liable to pay compensation for injuries suffered by any passengers in the vehicle.

Driving on wrong side of the road, woman dies in car accident

In New York and elsewhere, when a driver is operating on the wrong side of the road and heading into oncoming traffic, it’s often a formula for tragic consequences. A driver must have control of his or her vehicle at all times while operating it on the road. The driver must be looking ahead and knowing what lies ahead. When the driver has lost concentration and is in a car accident while driving on the wrong side of the road, she will almost always be determined to be the primary at-fault party for liability purposes.

Highway worker hit and seriously injured in car accident

One important rule of the road is that the driver must have sufficient control of his vehicle to avoid hitting other vehicles or persons on the road ahead. He must be focused on what lies ahead and react accordingly. He must be going at a speed that allows him to slow down within an assured clear distance of anything ahead. These are fairly universal principles of vehicular negligence applicable in New York elsewhere. One who fails to follow these basic operating principles and causes a car accident will likely be found liable for the damage caused.

Weather conditions and driver distractions are among the leading causes of automobile accidents in the United States.

A minor car accident doesn't always mean minor injuries

You're driving down the road, and as you're about to make your way through that intersection you have been through a thousand times, another driver T-bones you from the left.
