The Costs of a Car Accident in Brooklyn

In any car accident claim, there are several types of damages that you can claim.  Damages refer to the award, typically a monetary award, that is paid as compensation for loss and injury.  Damages incurred in a car accident include:

  • Repair/replacement costs of the vehicle
  • Hospital bills, including ambulance costs if seriously injured
  • Costs of surgery and rehabilitation if seriously injured
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering

We can help you pursue compensation for these costs, especially if the other party acted in negligence to cause the car accident.

Car Accident Insurance Laws in New York

New York is a “no-fault” insurance state. This means that, should you have a collision, you file a claim with your own insurance company, and they pay lost earnings and cover your medical bills. This sounds simple and straightforward and, in the event of a minor collision, it is. But notice that there is no provision for your own insurance company to pay for your pain and suffering.

In a no-fault state, you and/or your passenger(s) can only recover damages for pain and suffering by suing the other driver, and only under certain circumstances, such as your medical bills exceeding a certain amount.

The statute of Limitations in New York

In the State of New York, you have only 30 days from the day of the accident to file an insurance claim, and the statute of limitations restricts the window of time in which you can legally file a lawsuit to pursue damages.
