If you have been injured in a car accident, you already have enough things to worry about. Aside from recovering from your injuries, worrying about medical bills, and potentially being unable to work for a prolonged period of time, you may also be dealing with an insurance company that is pressuring you into accepting a settlement that is not in your best interests.
You do not need to do this alone. Our attorneys understand the pressure you are under and will work to manage your case so that you do not need to. Our legal team will manage every aspect of your personal injury case and property damage claim so you can concentrate on what’s most important ─ your health.
Our New York car accident lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation of your crash, collect extensive information about your injuries, and demand maximum compensation from the at-fault parties. This could include compensation for medical bills, damage to your vehicle or personal property, lost income due to an inability to work, pain and suffering, and other potential avenues for financial relief.
That could include:
- Payment for your current medical bills
- Estimated costs of future medical treatments you may need
- Compensation for lost wages
- Payment for any reduction in wages you may experience in the future due to your injury
- Money to repair or replace your vehicle
- Compensation for the pain and suffering you have endured
- Punitive damages, which can be awarded as punishment in extreme cases
For example, the injuries from a car accident may not be immediately apparent. Many people get into car accidents and feel perfectly fine right afterward, only to begin feeling pain days afterwards. Insurance companies will try to brush off such claims as being unrelated to the accident, so they do not need to compensate you for them. Keeping good records of the pain and injury you suffer, as well as having experienced legal counsel available, can make sure you receive the full compensation you deserve.
Car accidents can be caused by a variety of different factors, including:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Fatigue or drowsiness
- Running a red light
- Road conditions
- Mechanical failure
