Manhattan Car Accident Statistics
Motor vehicle collisions are a leading cause of injury-related deaths in Manhattan. In one month, there were nearly 1,600 reportable accidents that injured 200 motorists. As noted by the New York City Police Department, hundreds of passengers, cyclists, and pedestrians were also injured in auto accidents during the same time period.
According to the New York State Department of Health in Manhattan (New York County) each month an average of:
- 3 people die in motor vehicle collisions;
- 28 people are hospitalized;
- 265 people are treated in emergency room departments;
- Men are nearly 2x as likely to be hospitalized as a result of a car crash; and
- Individuals between the ages of 25-44 are at the highest risk, with an average length of stay in the hospital of 5 days.
If you are involved in a traffic collision, it is important to act fast. You only have a limited amount of time to file a claim for damages. Call our office to discuss your case with an experienced Manhattan car accident lawyer.
What Are the Leading Causes of Car Accidents?
In the immediate aftermath of an accident, it can be difficult to determine the cause or who was at fault for the collision. It is essential to make notes of everything that happened before, during, and after the incident as soon as possible. If you wait too long, you may not be able to recall exactly what took place that led to the crash. However, it is not your responsibility to determine fault. Even if you were partially responsible for the crash, you might still be able to collect.
Common causes of car accidents include:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Distracted driving
- Aggressive driving or road rage
- Faulty mechanics/recalled auto parts
- Unsafe road conditions
Because New York is a no-fault insurance state, you are able to seek compensation through your insurance company for your out-of-pocket losses, including medical bills, lost wages, and more. However, if you are seriously injured, you may have to file a personal injury lawsuit to obtain the compensation you deserve.
You should always consult with an attorney prior to accepting a settlement. Insurance adjusters will try to get you to settle for the lowest amount possible. At Ajlouny Injury Law, we will work hard to get you the compensation you need to fully recover after a car accident.
Types of Manhattan Car Accidents
Auto collisions can range in severity from fender-benders to fatal head-on collisions. However, even minor accidents can have devastating results. You should always seek medical treatment after a car accident and continue treatment until discharged. Failure to continue medical treatment for your injuries could prolong your recovery and hurt your claim for damages.
Types of Manhattan car accident cases we handle include but are not limited to:
- Rear-end collisions
- Head-on collisions
- Pedestrian accidents
- Side-impact collisions
- Bicyclist accidents
While New York law allows you three (3) years from the date of the accident to file a claim based on personal injury, it is crucial to act quickly. It can take months to investigate and collect evidence in cases involving serious injuries.

Never Settle Before Consulting an Attorney
Soon after your accident, you may be contacted by an insurance adjuster offering a settlement. These early settlement offers are generally low, failing to cover all of your expenses. They may try to convince you that your injuries are not very serious or that you will be unable to get compensation for all of your losses. Do not sign anything until you have discussed your case with an attorney.
Insurance companies count on unrepresented injury victims accepting the first settlement offer they receive simply because they do not know the actual value of their case. You should never have to pay for another person’s negligence or wrongdoing. You deserve to be fully compensated for your losses. Contact our office to find out about what damages you are entitled to after a car accident.
