Can I Seek Compensation After a Car Accident?

Our car accident services specifically cover injuries sustained while you are in a vehicle, either as the driver or as a passenger.
We fight for you so you can focus on healing. Whether we are able to reach a settlement through mediation or through representing you in court, you can trust in our experience to serve you well.
What Are My Rights in New York After an Accident?
If you find yourself injured in a car accident, get medical attention as soon as you are able. Try to minimize your concerns about cost as much as possible; we can focus on insurance negotiations later, once you have received the medical care you need.
We see victims injured in all kinds of accidents, including:
- Drunk driving
- Road rage
- Neglected traffic lights or signs
- Texting while driving
- Failure to use a turn signal
- Falling asleep while driving
Car accidents can be intense and debilitating for all involved. We move quickly to get you the compensation you need to move through and past this traumatic experience.
How Long After an Accident Can You Sue in New York?
The New York statute of limitations says that you are able to file a lawsuit for a Personal Injury up to three years from the day the accident occurred. This includes car accidents as well. If you attempt to file a claim after the three years, then the courts will most likely dismiss the case.
Is New York a No-Fault State For Car Accidents?
New York is a “no-fault” insurance state, which means that those who are insured are generally reimbursed by their insurance company for damages regardless of who was responsible for causing the accident. People who are insured may be reimbursed for medical costs and other losses that may arise after the accident.
