New York Car Accident Lawyer

Who Can Seek Compensation After a Car Accident in New York?

You may generally seek compensation for a car accident in New York when:

  1. You suffer injuries
  2. Your loved one passes away

If someone else was responsible for your accident and you were injured, you could qualify to file a lawsuit against that party and seek several forms of compensation.

Who Will Your Attorney Seek Compensation from in a Car Accident Case?

Your attorney will seek compensation from those who are liable for your damages. This may include a vehicle driver or another responsible party.

Negligence is often the standard for liability in car accident cases. Your attorney may prove negligence by:

  1. Establishing that the negligent party owed you a duty of care
  2. Showing that the negligent party breached their duty of care to you
  3. Establishing the negligent party’s breach of duty of care as the cause of your car accident
  4. Identifying damages resulting from your car accident—and, by extension, from the defendant’s negligence

Employers may be responsible for their employees’ negligent actions—this is called vicarious liability. Our team knows the various liability standards. We’ll identify every party that owes you compensation for your car accident.

How Long do You Have to Seek Compensation?

Don’t wait to begin your case, as CVP § 214 generally allows you three years to file a car accident claim. If you plan to file a wrongful death claim, you may only have two years. Contact our team to start your case as soon as possible.

What Damages Entitle You to Seek Compensation?

If someone else caused your crash, you can generally seek coverage for any damages caused by your car accident. Your personal injury lawyer may obtain compensation for:

Your Pain and Suffering

Our team will determine how much you could seek for your pain and suffering. Pain and suffering can refer to:

  • Pain caused by your injuries
  • Lost quality of life
  • Lost sleep
  • Loss of physical or cognitive abilities
  • Anxiety, depression, and other conditions
  • Traumatic thoughts, memories, and dreams resulting from your car accident

Though the cost is not always immediately clear, we will determine the monetary toll of your pain and suffering.

Your Professional Damages

Injuries can diminish your potential as an employee. You may lose all of your regular wages while you’re recovering. If your symptoms are lasting, you may lose earning power. Injuries can also cost you bonuses, good standing with your employer, retirement contributions, and productivity. These may all be recoverable damages.

Property Costs

Liable parties may cover repairs or replacement of personal property. Property-related expenses may include:

  • Repairs for your vehicle
  • Replacement of your totaled vehicle
  • The cost of temporary transportation
  • Repair or replacement of your cellphone and other damaged valuables

You’re not generally responsible for property damage that a defendant causes—they are responsible.

Healthcare Costs

Healthcare expenses can be a primary reason for hiring a lawyer. The medical cost of a car accident can be great, especially if you:

  • Need emergency care
  • Undergo hospitalization
  • Require surgery
  • Require follow-up doctors visits
  • Need rehabilitation

Diagnostic procedures alone can be costly. We’ll seek coverage for all of your accident-related medical care.
