When a car accident happens, the police may determine who is at fault, but in many cases, this question goes unanswered. Often, to determine what really happened in a car accident and who should be held responsible, you need an independent investigation.
Even then, you’ll need a car accident lawyer who is experienced with New York insurance rules and personal injury law to make a strong case for the full compensation you deserve for your injuries and other losses.

The Queens car accident lawyers at Zlotolow & Associates will demand all available compensation in your personal injury claim. Depending on the extent of your injuries, we may pursue compensation for:
Our objective as auto accident attorneys is to make sure your crash does not result in a lasting financial burden for you or your family. We cannot change what has happened, but we can help you demand full relief as provided by New York personal injury law.
After a minor wreck, the other driver’s car insurance company may tell you to get three estimates and, minus a deductible, pay for your repairs. However, if you’ve been seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident, auto insurance is not as straightforward.
The medical costs of car accident injuries can be significant, particularly for catastrophic injuries, and will drive most large insurance companies to fight to protect their bottom lines. Even if you are hospitalized with car accident injuries, you may have already heard from an insurance adjustor. He or she may have offered what appears to be a generous settlement.
We urge you not to sign or agree to anything offered by an insurance company representative in the first days and weeks after a serious car accident. Without the advice of an experienced Queens auto accident attorney, you could easily sign away your rights to additional compensation you deserve.
It is important to keep in mind:
A quick settlement offer for medical expenses after a serious car accident will not and cannot address your true costs and losses. You must have full understanding of your injuries and long-term prognosis before you can begin to understand your medical costs. Even then, an offer an insurer makes without pressure from an experienced auto accident attorney is unlikely to include all of the compensation you deserve.
If you have received a settlement offer after a car accident with injuries, contact a Queens car accident lawyer from our firm and let us review it for free. If it’s a proper offer, we’ll say so. But it’s more likely we’ll tell you how and why we think we can get more for you.
Zlotolow & Associates can begin immediately to investigate your car accident, establish liability, and pursue compensation for you. And it is important that we do so right away because of deadlines imposed by New York’s statute of limitations on personal injury claims.
In general, a car accident lawsuit must be filed within three years of the crash. In a fatality, a wrongful death claim must be filed within two years. Other claims may have stricter time limits, such as a claim against a local government that had some responsibility for a car crash that injured you.
Personal injury claims are complex and often time-consuming. You must keep in mind:
