People who have been seriously injured in an auto accident face expenses for medical treatment, lost wages, damage to their vehicle and more. They endure pain and suffering, sometimes including the loss of a loved one in the accident. If the accident was not their fault, they deserve assistance with their expenses and, according to New York civil law, compensation for their pain and suffering.
