What Is My Car Accident Case Worth?
The value of your auto accident case depends on the facts of your case – including the nature and severity of your injuries, the extent of resulting damages, and available insurance coverage.
To help clients maximize compensation, we work meticulously to determine the proximate cause of the accident, and explore all available insurance coverage, including commercial insurance policies, excess coverage such as umbrella insurance as well as underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage. We may also work with accident reconstruction firms, medical experts, and financial experts to assess fault and liability, the long-term impact of injuries, and projected future damages such as lost income and diminished earning capacity.
What If an Insurance Company Makes a Settlement Offer?
The insurance companies that will represent the other party in the accident, or the one who caused the accident, will have seasoned lawyers fighting for them to minimize the significance of your injuries, show that you were at fault for the accident or at least had some fault for the accident. Insurance carriers commonly attempt to negotiate low settlement offers with the victims early in their cases – before they understand the full scope of their damages, prognosis of their injuries, and what future expenses they are likely to face in connection with their auto accident. They will get to work right away and their endgame is to ensure that you recover nothing or very little. You need a lawyer to protect You and fight for Your legal rights.
If you have been contacted by the insurance company for the adverse driver, you have no legal obligation to speak with them. In fact, it is a car accident lawyer that can best handle these communications on your behalf. By working with car accident attorneys who are well-versed in these types of cases, you will best position yourself for the maximum recovery.

Who Is at Fault for the Auto Accident?
Well. It's the answer that lawyers often provide and that most people hate to hear, but it's the truth. The answer is – it depends. An investigation into the accident will be necessary what party or parties are responsible and who can be proven to be at fault.
- Was it a negligent trucker who violated hours-of-service regulations?
- Was it the trucking company that pushed the trucker too far to meet deadlines and maximize profits?
- A drunk driver?
- Someone who failed to obey a traffic sign or traffic control device?
What If the at-fault Driver Claims that I was at Fault?
New York follows the comparative negligence Rule. This doctrine allows an injured plaintiff to recover compensation for their injuries, even if they were partly responsible for the accident that caused them.
How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Lawsuit in New York?
Car accident victims are restricted by the statute of limitations which dictates the amount of time that as auto accident victim has to file an action. The statute-of-limitations is three (3) years. But there are other, more restrictive deadlines. For example, in New York, regardless of fault in the accident you will look to your own insurance policy's no-fault to pay your medical bills. These forms typically need toy be completed and returned to your insurance company within thirty (30) days after the accident. Failure to timely submit these documents may result in your insurance company denying payment for your doctor's bills.
