Causes of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents can result from a variety of factors. One of the most common causes is driver negligence, but motor vehicle accidents can be caused by external elements as well. An uneven road or heavy rainstorm can sometimes cause drivers to lose control of their vehicle just as easily as a reckless driver can.

Some of the most common causes of motor vehicle accidents include:

Traffic violations


Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs

Distracted driving

Rear-end collisions

Sideswipe collisions

Mechanical issues

Road conditions

Inclement weather

New York is a No-Fault State

New York is considered a “no-fault” state, meaning that the victims of motor vehicle accidents can file a claim with their own insurance company to recover compensation after a collision. It is not necessary to prove the liability of the other involved parties or assign blame. If you have car insurance, you should be covered in the event of a collision.

Unfortunately, car insurance companies don’t always provide the coverage they should. When you file a motor vehicle accident claim, your insurance company may attempt to deny your coverage. Our motor vehicle accident lawyers in Kingston can help if you have been denied insurance coverage after an accident.
