Accidents involving emergency vehicles can be complex yet are not uncommon on New York’s bustling streets. If you find yourself in an accident, determining liability can feel like navigating a legal maze. In New York, although emergency vehicles are granted certain privileges in traffic, they are not exempt from the duty of care. The key to proving liability lies in demonstrating that the emergency vehicle operator acted negligently or recklessly, failing to uphold the required standard of care.

Understanding New York’s Laws on Emergency Vehicle Operations
In New York, laws surrounding emergency vehicle operations are designed to balance the urgency of emergency responses with public safety. Emergency vehicles are granted certain privileges like proceeding through red lights or exceeding speed limits, provided they exercise due regard for the safety of all road users. To prove liability, you and your lawyer must demonstrate that the emergency vehicle operator failed to exercise this due regard, consequently leading to the collision.
Understanding the nuances of these laws is crucial, as it forms the bedrock of your claim. At the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, we meticulously examine the circumstances surrounding your case, evaluating every aspect against the backdrop of New York’s legal framework.
