I was injured in a car accident. Now what?

If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, as a driver, passenger or a pedestrian, you may have a personal injury case to pursue.  After a car accident, while you may be trying to physically recover, it is important to think ahead and understand that there are a number of things that could come up that you didn’t anticipate.  For example, in the days or weeks following your car accident, you may discover that your injuries are worse than you thought.  A more serious injury could mean you can’t return to work as planned and result in a loss of income.  You may also have medical bills for your treatment.  These are just a few examples of unexpected situations that could come up after you’ve been in a car accident. There are many others.

We can work with you to ensure your rights are protected. We can work with the insurance companies and ultimately help you secure compensation for your pain and suffering.

Will my No Fault Insurance cover my expenses after a car accident?

New York State has what is called No-Fault Insurance.  No Fault Insurance will cover medical expenses if you are injured in a car accident regardless of who caused the accident.  However, car accidents will often result in additional expenses outside of your medical bills. You should consider talking with an experienced personal injury attorney from our team.

Have you been involved in an accident with a truck?

If you’ve been involved in a commercial truck accident, you should contact us immediately to discuss your circumstances.  While car vs. car accidents can be serious, accidents involving commercial trucks are usually even worse.  Injuries from a truck accident tend to be more significant simply because of the size and power of the truck.

You vs. the Trucking Company

When you are involved in a truck accident, you will mostly likely be going up against a trucking company to recover what you’ve lost in the accident.  Most trucking companies have procedures in place to deal with accidents.  These procedures are generally aimed at limiting the responsibility they assume for the accident.

An important part of any lawsuit is to prove who is at fault for the incident.  There are number of causes for truck vs. car accidents.  If you suspect the truck driver was at fault for your accident we can help you obtain the information needed to pursue a successful case against the trucking company.

It is also important to keep in mind that the trucking company will most likely have more monetary resources than you to fight the claim.  When this is the case, working with an experienced personal injury attorney, can help ensure you aren’t denied the compensation you deserve.

You should know, there are a number of claims you could pursue against the trucking company with the right evidence to support them including:

Negligence – If you can prove the truck driver was being negligent and caused the accident, you could pursue a negligence case.

Product Liability – If you can prove something was wrong with the truck that was involved in your accident, you may have a product liability case.

Wrongful Death – If your loved one has passed away as a result of a truck accident, you may have a wrongful death case.

Don’t try to go up against the trucking company alone.  Let us help you.  Contact us and a member of our team will review your case.
