Liability In Brooklyn Car Accidents
Car accidents remain one of the leading causes of injury and death in the United States. Many accidents are caused by dangerous left turns. According to New York Vehicle & Traffic Law (Sec. 1411), “The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left within an intersection or into an alley, private road, or driveway shall yield the right of way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction which is within the intersection or so close as to constitute an immediate hazard.” Any person that is injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
