New York is a “no-fault” state, which means that medical bills and lost earnings are paid by the no-fault insurance carrier. Strict deadlines apply with respect to obtaining benefits pursuant to no-fault. When someone is injured in a motor vehicle collision, it is especially important to consult with an attorney for this reason.
Frequently Asked Legal Questions About Car Accidents
Below, we’ve answered some of the common questions we receive from potential clients. After reading them, feel free to contact us with your own questions.
I’ve just been injured in a car accident. What should I do now?
When you are injured by another vehicle in an auto accident, it’s foremost important you seek medical attention immediately. Save all of your medical bills and reports as proof of your injuries, so that we can be sure you receive full reimbursement for these expenses.
We want to help you get a fair settlement so that you receive the full financial support you deserve. If you have been injured in an accident and are left with medical expenses and other damages to reconcile with, contact us as soon as you can.
The other driver’s insurance company offered me a settlement that doesn’t cover all my expenses. Should I accept it anyway?
No. Insurance companies are usually the first to offer you a settlement for your accident, which means their offer is usually a low one. When an insurance company offers you a settlement, it’s important that you review it to make sure all of your injuries and expenses for all your injuries have been confirmed. If something is missing from the offer, or they are not giving you enough to treat your injuries, call us.
Oftentimes, cases are worth more than what an insurance company is agreeing to pay you, so you should avoid accepting an offer that doesn’t give you the full support you deserve. We will fight on your behalf to get you the most we can for your physical and psychological injuries. You should never have to pay for damages done to you due to the negligence of another person.
