“Robert Fason, 44, was shot on the sidewalk in Brooklyn on June 30.

"The Brooklyn man who bled to death after responding NYPD cops failed to get out of their car dialed 911 in his dying moments, his widow’s attorney told The Post on Tuesdays."

That does not count the people who were paralyzed, disabled, or laid off work for months trying to recover.

A car crash can leave you with injuries you never imagined and bills you cannot pay. What are the right steps to take if you are injured by a negligent motorist in New York City?

For pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists, intersections are a dangerous place to be in New York City. Constantly in motion, intersections are places where multiple transportation modes meet, and do not necessarily safely mingle.
Depending on the borough, the danger of a traffic accident rises and falls. In 2015, Brooklyn was the most dangerous place to be for pedestrians and bicyclists, followed by Queens. For motorists in 2015, Queens was tops for motorist injuries and fatalities.
