Some of the most prevalent accidents on Bronx streets are rear-ended crashes. Victims in these accidents rarely see the crash coming and can experience mild to severe injuries to the neck, head, and spine. Cellino & Barnes is one of the nation’s largest law firms handling hundreds of cases involving rear-end crashes.
If you or someone you know was hurt in a rear-end crash, experienced lawyers can play a crucial role in getting the largest possible settlement from the insurance company.
Sideswipe accidents most often occur when at least one vehicle crosses the center of the road, making contact with another car. These accidents can also happen with two or more vehicles moving in the same direction, usually when one vehicle attempts to change lanes.
These accidents can cause severe injuries because vehicles have less protection, such as a bumper, along the sides and are not designed to absorb the full force of a crash. The Bronx car accident lawyers at Cellino & Barnes have years of experience handling these types of accidents.
If you or someone you know has been hurt in a car accident, our attorneys available 24/7 for a free consultation.
Drunk Driving Accidents
While we are all aware of the risk involved when drinking and driving, too many people decide to take the chance every day. Today, drunk driving accidents are one of the leading causes of death and serious injuries in the United States. Drunk driving is a choice. When drivers choose to drive after drinking, they are not only breaking the law, they are gambling with someone else’s life.
Drunk driving car accidents usually occur when a driver drives too slowly or fast, makes an illegal turn into oncoming traffic, fails to stop at a red light or stop sign, drives on the wrong side of the road or rear-ends another vehicle. In some cases, the supplier of the alcohol may be found negligent as well.
The victim of a car crash caused by a drunk driver is often forced to face not only serious and debilitating personal injuries, but also medical expenses and severe emotional trauma. Injuries can range from minor scratches to complete paralysis or death.
