Fighting the Insurers for Your Full Compensation

An auto accident creates many questions and concerns, especially when you have serious or lasting injuries. As we are investigating the crash, we can help you deal with the immediate concerns so that you can focus on healing and getting back into the flow of life.

It is important to preserve evidence and contact a lawyer promptly. Photos of your injuries, the vehicles and the intersection can make a big difference. Witness statements should be obtained while their memories are fresh and untainted. Meanwhile our Long Island car accident attorneys document your needs and losses, including medical bills, lost wages, property damage, disability or disfigurement, and pain and suffering. We are prepared to go to trial if necessary to get justice.

Auto insurance companies employ adjusters who drive around Long Island. They show up at accident scenes and offer settlements on the spot to accident victims to try to save money. Your claim is almost certainly worth much more and you could be signing away rights. Don’t sign any papers without first speaking with an attorney. Because once you sign those papers, your rights are over.
