Pursuing Full & Fair Compensation for an Auto Accident

Even in “minor” car accidents, there is property damage to pay for and the potential for late onset injuries to require costly medical treatment. Too often, car accident injuries can be severe, catastrophic, or fatal. Income losses can be staggering. Medical care could take months, or even a lifetime, involving costly surgical procedures, rehabilitation, and more. If you have suffered from a vehicle collision caused by a negligent driver or another reckless party, you should be compensated fully.

After a car accident, another party could be liable to pay you damages because of:

  • Aggressive or reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Traffic violations committed before the crash
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Manufacturer defects in the vehicle

Unfortunately, the compensation process can be complex, as insurance companies generally fail to make a reasonable offer without heavy pressure from an experienced New York car accident attorney. At our firm, we prepare our cases for civil court, and our reputation for courtroom success has been a great benefit when we tackle car accident claims for our clients, pressuring insurers to offer a swift and fair settlement.

FAQ About Car Accidents

One of the most important steps you can take in your personal injury case is to ask questions and get answers. At Lurie, Ilchert, MacDonnell & Ryan, we are confident that we can get you the answers you need to be able to move forward in your case. Following are just some of the questions we hear on a regular basis. If you still need answers, feel free to give us a call:

Do I have to report the accident to my insurance company?
If you do not report the motor vehicle accident to your insurance company, they may deny any subsequent payments for future claims that you file. The insurance company is required to notify you within 30 days whether your claim is denied or verified, or of its status if a decision has not been reached.

Do I still have a case if I was found to be the cause of the accident?
The state of New York allows you to bring a claim against another person if you are injured but found to be partially at fault. The answer to this question, however, will be particular to your case, which is why it is important to reach out to a knowledgeable attorney who can fully evaluate your case.

What should my first steps be if involved in an accident?
Make sure that you and all other individuals involved get to safety. If injuries have been suffered, seeking medical attention is imperative. Even if the accident was minor, repot it to the police. Document information about the accident, including the time and place of the crash, take photos of the event, and write down information (both personal and insurance) of the drivers involved.
