With the high levels of congestion on New York city streets, car accidents are an ever present danger.

Car accidents can be caused by many different factors. For example, some car accidents are caused by driver error, such as when a car fails to stop at a stop sign or when a car hits a pedestrian or bicyclist. Other car accidents are caused, for example, by defects in the car itself, such as when a car has defective tires or defective brakes. Additionally, sometimes injuries are caused or made worse by defects such as defective seat belts or air bags.
