New York Auto Accident Lawyer

New York Auto Accident Lawyer - Car accidents are one of the most common sources of personal injury. Most are minor fender-benders, but a shocking number cause severe injury, permanent disability, and even death. With these traumas often come pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages, medical expenses, and property damage - all of which may constitute financial compensation. Sadly, though, many auto accident victims never receive the full amount of damages to which they are entitled to for their car accidents. The major reason is that, because they don't know the full worth of their claims, auto accident victims accept the first offers that insurance companies make - and it's no secret that these insurance companies try to get off cheap. That said, it is crucial to enlist the help of a qualified personal injury lawyer if you are to be fairly compensated.

A personal injury lawyer can:

  • Help prove liability by preserving evidence and interviewing witnesses
  • Ensure you receive the proper medical care
  • Help you understand the law, including statutes of limitations
  • Help you document your injuries properly so that you receive full compensation
  • Ensure that you receive the compensation to which you are rightfully entitled

Further, in cases of malicious intent - such as if a company knowingly markets tires it knows are defective and these tires subsequently cause injuries - auto accident victims may be entitled to punitive damages in addition to compensatory damages. A personal injury attorney can help determine which damages you are eligible for and can help you build an effective case.
