Liability In New Baltimore Car Accidents
All drivers have a legal responsibility to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner in order to prevent accidents. According to New York Vehicle & Traffic Code 1180, “No person shall drive a vehicle at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions and having regard to the actual and potential hazards then existing.” There are a number of factors commonly associated with car accidents including:
- Following the lead vehicle too closely
