Recoverable damages can include:
However, for all personal injury claims in New York, negligence is the central theme behind determining whether someone who has suffered an injury (in an auto accident or otherwise) can sue another person for those injuries.
Negligence has four elements:
The work of our car crash attorneys is to not only offer you alternatives to the confusion and pressure that can come from insurance companies but to handle the investigation, filing and resolution of your case. We want you to focus on healing while we focus on your claims.
Our motor vehicle accident lawyers can help you receive appropriate compensation from insurance companies. It is highly recommended to seek legal representation following a car accident.
An experienced personal injury attorney can help you obtain the money needed to cover all your losses related to an accident.
An insurance company may offer you a settlement worth far less than the value of your case. Working with a personal injury lawyer, you can assure yourself that you will get the best possible outcome for your case.
Insurance companies may attempt to take advantage of you during the vulnerable time after you sustain injuries from car accidents or lose a loved one. As insurance companies push you to accept low and inadequate compensations they may work to coerce you into settling for less than you deserve. Even in the best of times, handling such relationships can be difficult and exhausting, and, in times of crisis and trauma, the push to do things like return to work quickly or agree to terms without understanding all options can be overwhelming.
We are trained and prepared to help you during such horrific times. Our car accident lawyers bring their passion and knowledge to ensuring your rights are protected and you receive the compensation you deserve.
You pay nothing unless we win. When you contact our office you will speak directly with a White Plains car accident lawyer. All of our consultations are 100% free. Fees are paid through an agreed upon portion of your settlement or verdict.
We want you to protect your right to sue. In the state of New York, you must file your lawsuit within three years of the day the accident occurred. Time is of the essence and getting an investigation underway as soon as possible is always best. The longer the time period between the accident and investigation commencement, the more likely that memories will fade and evidence will be lost.
Car accidents are unfortunately common. The New York Department of Health reports that over 100,000 people in our state require emergency room attention each year due to unintentional motor vehicle-traffic related injuries. We see an average of 12,000 hospitalizations each year due to car crashes and, tragically, more than 1,000 New Yorkers die in auto-related accidents annually.
Many of these accidents are caused by inattention or negligence and are preventable. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, some common causes of car accidents include:
Even if you are partially responsible for the accident, in New York, under Section 1411 of the Civil Practice Law & Rules, you may still have a claim for damages. The law allows for compensation, even if it is shown that there was contributory negligence. Even if you believe that you were partially at fault, you will not be barred from recovering some compensation. It is important to discuss your case with a car crash lawyer to determine liability. You should never make any statements to other parties or the insurance company about your responsibility.
While New York is a “no-fault” state, you still have a right to sue if you sustained serious personal injuries. Our auto accident attorneys can help you understand the complexities of your case and litigate on your behalf.
Common types of car crashes include:
Our personal injury lawyers also represent clients seriously injured in auto accidents that involve busses, pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles and freight trucks.
While car accidents can sometimes result in minor injuries, many cause severe or catastrophic injuries. Catastrophic injuries are debilitating and make it difficult to return to gainful employment or your normal life. To obtain compensation for “non-economic loss,” like pain and suffering, a person must demonstrate that they suffered a serious or catastrophic injury.
New York Law defines serious injury as personal injury that results in:
In a car accident you may also be harmed by your own vehicle’s design or defects. Faulty systems or components can cause injury and accident. Issues such as airbag malfunction or vehicle roll-over due to tire defect or improper center-of-gravity may be part of your claim.
Our car accident attorneys can investigate the many factors in your case, allowing you time and energy to better respond to your injury or loss. We know that mobility may be an issue and our personal injury lawyers will meet with you at a location that is convenient and accessible for you.
It is critical that you do not sign anything or submit to insurance company demands before speaking to an attorney. To learn more about whether you would benefit from filing a lawsuit because of your car accident, call the car accident lawyers at our firm. We are waiting to help you out.
