Injured in a Car Accident?

In New York, you have a right to pursue compensation for your losses if you have been injured in a car wreck. We have experience representing people with a variety of injuries, including:

  • Bone fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Disfigurement
  • Nerve damage
  • Dismemberment
  • Permanent loss of use of a limb or organ
  • Chronic pain syndrome
  • Paralysis

New York is a no-fault state, which means your car insurance will cover your medical expenses related to a car accident regardless of who was at fault. However, insurance companies sometimes resist paying benefits, which can spell bad news if you have to pay hospital bills that are piling up.

New York law also has certain threshold requirements when it comes to pursuing and compensating people for motor vehicle accident injuries. The law is commonly known as the "serious injury threshold" pursuant to New York insurance law. An experienced car accident lawyer can review whether you meet the threshold.

The Experience You Need, the Advocates You Deserve

If you have been hurt in an accident in New York, you have likely already experienced significant changes to your life. In addition to physical pain, medical expenses and emotional trauma, you may be left unable to work for weeks or even indefinitely.
