What to Do If You Have Been Injured in an Accident
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common causes of injuries in New York. Even though many auto accidents are minor fender-benders, they nonetheless result in a shocking number of severe injuries and even death. In addition to disability, victims often experience substantial pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages, medical expenses, and property damage, all of which can be recoverable through financial compensation. Sadly, many car accident victims never receive the full amount of damages to which they are entitled. Many car accident victims unaware of the full value of their claims and accept the first offer from their insurance company. Do not let this happen.
The insurance company wants to settle your case as soon as possible – and for as little money as possible. You need time to determine just how serious your injury is, what medical treatment or physical therapy you need, and how much of your wages you will lose. Don’t talk to the insurance company. Instead, retain a qualified personal injury attorney as soon as possible to achieve maximum compensation.
Our lawyers can help you:
- Establish liability by preserving evidence and interviewing witnesses
- Ensure you receive the proper medical care and stay in touch with you as you recover from your injuries
- Help you understand the law, including statutes of limitations
- Collect the necessary medical records and document your injuries properly so that you receive full compensation
- Ensure that you receive the compensation to which you are rightfully entitled
- Negotiate a settlement that takes into account all future medical and financial needs.
- Our firm also represents clients injured through the New York City Mass Transit Authority (MTA) buses, subways, and trains.
In cases of malicious intent – such as where a company knowingly markets defective products, resulting in serious injuries, victims may be entitled to punitive damages in addition to compensatory damages. Our personal injury attorneys can help determine which damages you are eligible for and can help you build an effective case.
