Tarrytown Attorneys for Personal Injury Lawsuits
Located on the eastern shore of the Hudson River in Westchester County, New York, Tarrytown has a population of roughly 11,500. It is home to a number of popular sites including the Tarrytown Music Hall, Lyndhurst, and the Castle on Hudson, as well as the excellent Equus Restaurant. Four generations of the Rockefeller family lived in the northern section of the village, which is now called Sleepy Hollow. The town has its own Justice Court at One Depot Plaza, and it is where criminal cases, small claims, vehicle and traffic cases, and parking tickets are handled. There are several ordinances that homeowners in the village are required to follow. As in other places, serious accidents do occur and cause significant injuries. If you are injured through the fault of another, you should call trustworthy Tarrytown personal injury lawyer Mark A. Siesel.Car Accidents
New York is a no-fault state. This means that when you’re injured in a car accident, you will need to turn to your own personal injury protection (PIP) benefits first, and to sue for damages, such as noneconomic damages, you will need to have serious injuries. Often car accidents in Tarrytown are the fault of a negligent driver. Our lawyers can show negligence by: (1) establishing that the other driver owed you a duty of care, (2) departure from the duty of care, (3) the departure caused your serious injuries, and (4) actual damages. Drivers depart from the duty of reasonable care by speeding, tailgating, weaving, driving under the influence, distracted driving, failing to obey traffic signs and signals, failure to yield, and reckless or aggressive behavior.Motorcycle Accidents
Unlike those riding in enclosed vehicles, motorcyclists have little protection against the force of a collision. Even when speeds aren’t that high, motorcyclists can find themselves with catastrophic injuries that are expensive and have long recovery periods. As with car accidents, in most cases, motorcyclists may be able to recover damages from negligent drivers. Often those driving larger vehicles are not attentive to the presence of motorcycles. They may act negligently in terms of distracted driving, failure to yield, speeding, unsafe passing, tailgating, and failing to obey traffic signs and signals.Truck Accidents
Often truck accidents are catastrophic or even fatal to more than one person in a smaller vehicle or pedestrian. These crashes can be complex, and often complex insurance issues arise. It is important to retain a seasoned personal injury attorney who understands how to investigate the case and all contributing causes to the accident. All responsible parties should be brought into the lawsuit to maximize your chances of recovery. Parties that could be responsible for a truck accident include the truck driver, trucking company, third party loading company, mechanic, manufacturer, and another driver.Premises Liability
When you visit someone else’s property in Tarrytown, you do not expect to suffer injuries. Unfortunately, some landowners and occupiers do not take seriously their duty to protect lawful visitors against injury. Serious injuries can occur at malls, restaurants, bars, cafes, retail stores, big box stores, hotels, and private residences.
If you were injured as the result of a dangerous property condition in Tarrytown, you may be able to recover damages by establishing responsibility in a premises liability lawsuit. Our lawyers would need to prove the property owner breached a duty to care to make sure their property was free of obvious potential dangers that could harm guests and patrons. We will need to show that the owner knew or should have known about the dangerous property condition that caused your injuries.Call a Seasoned Tarrytown Personal Injury Lawyer
