The New York City commute is always potentially dangerous.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 21, 2012
Two separate bus accidents on one day seriously slowed traffic through the Lincoln Tunnel. The first accident occurred during the morning commute when a New Jersey Transit bus was rear-ended by a Martz Trailways bus. A few hours later, another traffic accident in the Lincoln Tunnel caused a five-truck, three-car pile-up, reported NY1. The New York City commute is always potentially dangerous, said New York auto accident lawyer David Perecman.
“In New York City there is congestion, a high volume of vehicles steaming through narrow roadways and, people who don’t always give themselves enough time to get to and from work. What happens then is that a number of delayed drivers often speed when congestion lessens, in order to ‘make up the time,’" said Perecman. “Then there are the drivers who may be distracted.”
The bus accident injured approximately 20 people. Two of them were injured seriously, reported NY1. The car-truck accident caused multiple injuries.
New York auto accident lawyers at The Perecman Firm understand that no matter what caused a vehicular accident, people who were injured may be able to bring personal injury claims against the negligent driver.
