Better or Worse: Motor Vehicle Accidents Still Claim Lives

Yesterday, the Department of Transportation testified before the New York City Council on the progress of their "Vision Zero" program introduced by Mayor de Blasio. In the last twelve months, no police cars, fire trucks, garbage trucks or snow plows were involved in a fatal crash. Last year, eight people were killed. The City is claiming that new training programs and sideguards on 250 city trucks have prevented the deaths. However, the Comptroller's introduction of ClaimStat to make city agencies accountable for the lawsuits and payouts they have had to make from injured New Yorkers are likely also involved.

But by no means is the City still safe. On Monday, a mother was killed, and her toddler critically injured, when an SUV ran a red light at Atlantic Avenue and 108th Street, striking a Kia and sending the car into four people. The mother heroically tried to push the toddler out of the way. That same day, a pregnant mother leaving her work as a waitress in Staten Island was trying to catch the bus and killed.

These everyday New Yorkers, caught in horrible and preventable accidents, deserve to be represented by a neighborhood law firm who cares to get them the most that they can for their injures.
