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:
We can help you pursue compensation for these costs, especially if the other party acted in negligence to cause the car accident.
Brooklyn’s roadways and thorough fairs are busy and often congested and serious traffic accidents occur on a daily basis. However, in Brooklyn car accidents are likely to occur on major roads such as:
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.
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.
The personal injury lawyers at Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff have the knowledge and years of experience to correctly assess and evaluate your situation; provide ongoing advice and assistance, where needed; and take whatever actions necessary to get you the compensation you deserve.
These actions include:
Additionally, while settling out of court is an option, it may not always our best interests. We strive to get you the maximum possible compensation needed for full recovery. If a company refuses to negotiate their offer, we will not hesitate to take them to court to pursue the compensation you deserve.
