Nothing is more common in today’s legal landscape than car, truck or vehicle accidents. We all know about them, have seen them, have read about them and many of us have even been in one: usually just a simple “fender-bender”. Everyone thinks they know what they need to know about auto accidents, until one happens to them. From that point on – even in the simplest of collisions – things can get very complicated, very quickly.
Serious injuries resulting from a car, motorcycle, or truck accident require knowledgeable, experienced, and committed legal representation to protect your rights and to make sure you receive the medical care and monetary compensation that you’re entitled to. New York is a “No-Fault Automobile Insurance” state. In a nutshell, that means that there are special rights, rules, regulations and limitations regarding vehicle accident cases. Standards that apply to everyone and everything else may not apply to a “No-Fault” case and even when they do, prompt, knowledgable and appropriate action is key to getting what you’re entitled to. Wait too long – or do it wrong – and your rights may be gone forever!
For people hurt in an accident, there are always two separate paths to travel, even though they come close at times and may even touch one another. The first and most important is the path back to health. Proper medical care and treatment is key to recovery from an accident in every sense. The second path is knowing and properly exercising your legal rights. Following the proper legal advice is key to getting medical care paid for, getting property damage fixed or reimbursed, recovering lost wages, and learning whether the injuries are serious enough under the law to justify the damages award that only a lawsuit can provide.
