New York Auto Accident Lawyer Calls for Change after Third Bridge Accident


New York auto accident lawyer David Perecman strongly recommends that the New York Department of Transportation does something to fix the 59th Street Bridge exit ramp after a third major accident occurs on the same turn.

In the most recent auto accident on the Queensboro Bridge off-ramp, the car hit a barrier, went up in the air, and landed on a parked livery car. The car accident in New York left the driver with minor injuries.

New York auto accident lawyer Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York’s auto accident law firms notes that the car accident happened at the same hairpin turn as two recent – and fatal – auto accidents.

“By now the danger should be obvious to all New Yorkers,” auto accident lawyer Perecman said. “Twice is coincidence. Three times is a traffic pattern problem that the City Department of Transportation must address.”

Before the three car accidents, a large reconstruction project combined two exit ramps coming off the Queensboro into a single, sharply curving lane. The intention was to increase pedestrian safety. Unintentionally, the changes reduced safety by making the ramp harder for drivers to see.

Anyone who is the victim of an auto accident in New York should contact a New York auto accident lawyer. An expert New York auto accident lawyer can help individuals get the compensation they deserve.
