Motor Vehicle Accident Decision

In an important motor vehicle accident decision in January of 2014, the Appellate Division affirmed a summary judgment for the defendant in Lee v. D. Daniels Contr., Ltd., 2014 NY Slip Op 00487.  This case centered around an interesting question, to wit, Does a parties conduct in furnishing the conditions for the accident also make that party a proximate cause of the accident?  Based on this decision the answer is surprisingly, not necessarily.  Causal relationships have everything to do with liability in personal injury cases.  This case also shows us that it is important to keep up with current case law in order to evaluate the likelihood of success for a particular matter.  Automobile accidents are very intricate and should be evaluated by an attorney.
