How can a lawyer help me after a car accident?

A lawyer experienced with traffic accidents and personal injury lawsuits in New York can help you identify and obtain all of the compensation you deserve for the injuries and other losses caused by the accident.

After suffering serious injuries in a car accident, you will likely face expensive medical bills and have a car to repair or replace. If you are away from work to recover, you will lose income. You will likely find that the insurance company wants to pay you less than you deserve.

An attorney can determine and document all of your losses and demonstrate to the insurance company the amount of money you deserve in a settlement. This includes direct losses identifiable from bills, and projections of future costs for ongoing medical needs and lost income from a reduced capacity to work for a living in cases of partial or complete disability. A lawyer can also seek out all sources of insurance and determine whether other parties may be liable for the accident, such as a bar that served an underage patron.

After a thorough investigation of your accident, a lawyer can file a personal injury lawsuit and negotiate with insurance companies for the settlement you deserve, or present a strong case on your behalf in court if that is necessary.
