New York City Car Accident Lawyer

For many, the privilege to drive is a vital part of our lives. Without this privilege, many of us would be stranded without any means of getting to work or even going shopping to support ourselves and our loved ones. Yet, with approximately 11,146,000 licensed drivers in the state of New York, even the safest driver is at risk of getting involved in a car or auto accident.

According to the State Department of Motor Vehicles (NYDMV), there were 270,700 car accidents in the state in 2006. The vast majority of auto collisions occur right here in New York City. This should be of no surprise when you consider the nature of the city: high density population, road construction, congested streets, and a vast number of pedestrian and bike traffic.

If you have been involved in a car accident, you must be able to show that the other driver was negligent in his or her actions or that there was a defect with the other vehicle or the road itself in order to collect compensation for damages and pain and suffering. This is why it is crucial to obtain expert legal representation with the experience and knowledge needed when dealing with these types of cases. New York City Lawyer, Todd Strier, understands the disruption a car accident can have on one's life and will fight to get you the justice you deserve. Contact the Law Office of Todd Strier to talk to a lawyer about your case.
