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
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
What type of injuries are caused by car accidents?
Car wrecks can result in a wide range of injuries from lacerations and
whiplash and traumatic brain damage. In general, most injuries that result for
an auto collision fit in one of the following categories:
- Neck Injuries
- Soft Tissue Injuries
- Spinal Damage
- Leg & Knee Injuries
- Broken Bones
- Burn Injuries
- Back Injuries
- Head & Brain Injuries
After consulting a physician and assessing the physical damages that resulted
from your accident, discuss your legal options with our team of NYC injury
lawyers during a free, initial case evaluation.
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, report 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.
