CAUSES OF NEW YORK CAR ACCIDENTS
Car accidents are one of the nation's greatest, yet least-discussed, epidemics. Indeed, more people under the age of 34 die in car accidents than from any other cause. In any given five-year period, approximately a quarter of the drivers on the road are involved in car crashes. Tragically, most car accidents could have been prevented if not for the negligence of one of the drivers involved. Car accidents in Manhattan and throughout New York can be especially devastating due to the city's heavily congested roads.
