Fatal Car Accidents in New York City and Long Island
According to the New York Department of Health, motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of injury-related deaths statewide. Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol are a significant cause of fatal car accidents.
Driving while distracted by a cell phone, the car radio, or kids misbehaving can also be just as dangerous. Road Rage and aggressive driving are also extremely dangerous. Aggressive driving causes 66% of all traffic-related fatalities.
With the proliferation of rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft, there is a significant rise in the number of accident cases caused by negligent drivers. Uber and Lyft drivers are paid based on time and distance, so to earn more money, rideshare drivers are driving fast and recklessly causing accidents, many of which have led to fatalities of passengers, other drivers, or pedestrians.

Marc Albert will hold those Responsible Accountable
Marc Albert will work for you to keep drivers who create unsafe conditions on the road legally accountable when a person loses his or her life.
We will pursue a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased victim. We will base wrongful death cases on the negligence of the person who caused the fatality. Under New York law, only personal representatives of an estate can file a wrongful death lawsuit. These plaintiffs can either be executors appointed to oversee a victim’s estate in a will or individuals named as estate administrators.
Often, this named executor or administrator is a surviving spouse or child of the victim. Relatives do not have separate rights to pursue legal action themselves under state law. However, successful wrongful death claims can result in damages being awarded to a victim’s heirs as well as to the estate itself.
