Automobile Accidents: Defective Roadways, Snow and Ice Accumulation

Every year there are thousands of automobile accidents in New York. Unfortunately, they leave families burdened with medical expenses as well as pain and suffering. They are often caused by defective roadways and snow and ice accumulation. Road defect cases are often caused by negligent road design that makes driving very dangerous. Leaving snow and ice to accumulate can also cause very serious collisions and pedestrian knockdowns. No matter how careful you are, there are many instances of defective roads and snow and ice accumulation that cause dangerous driving conditions. This area of law has been a significant part of our firm's practice for many years. Injuries can be very serious, with permanent health consequences. Accidents can also result in a significant loss of income.
