Which NYC Intersection Has The Most Car Accident Cases?
Posted on October 23, 2021 in Motor Vehicle Accidents
In the city that never sleeps, there’s no denying that a fair share of motor vehicle accidents can occur. Car accidents can lead to serious injuries or even fatalities – if you or a loved one have been a victim, you may have found yourself under serious financial and emotional stress. On top of the injuries you have to deal with that can include broken bones, head injuries, and more, you may also be out of work for some time or even permanently. Whether you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, taxi accident or trucking accident, you have legal rights to compensation.
When you find yourself stretched to the limit by the pressing needs which the accident has resulted in, a motor vehicle accident lawyer can help to fight in your best interests. If your injury or injuries you suffered will affect your future ability to work and quality of life, you may even have a catastrophic injury case. In this article, we share with you the NYC intersections with the most car accident cases.
Tillary Street and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn
This intersection is not only considered the most dangerous in the state of New York, but in NYC alone. With an average number of 180 accidents per year, this can be attributed to the access to the Brooklyn Bridge, an on-ramp to the Manhattan Bridge, and an off-ramp to the Brooklyn-Queens expressway that can be found at this intersection.
Jamaica Avenue, Bushwick Avenue and the Jacky Robinson Parkway in Queens
As this area is close to the Belt Parkway, which sees a lot of traffic coming in and out, it is a particularly dangerous intersection to be on. The convergence of multiple roads can make intersections harder to navigate and result in a higher number of accidents.
2nd Avenue and East 59th Street in Manhattan
The danger in this area is not limited to this specific intersection, but the ones around it as well. Approximately 600 car accidents happen per year on 2nd Avenue and between East 59th and 63rd Streets.
Alexander Avenue and East 138th Street in The Bronx
Although the Bronx typically sees a lower number of accidents than more populated areas, the intersection between Alexander Avenue and East 138th Street is one that sees a higher number of accidents in the area.
