What to Do After a Car Accident
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, you may be frazzled and stressed, and understandably so. You may be suffering from injuries or concerned about the state of your car, or the other drivers’ well-being. However, it’s important that you cover your bases so that you have the evidence you need when you file a claim. Our lawyers can also help you gather the evidence that can strengthen your case.
After you’ve been injured:
- Seek medical treatment immediately if your injuries call for it
- Make sure your cars are parked safely to the side, and check on the other driver
- Take photos of property damage and any injuries
- Collect the other drivers’ license plate number and information, including their insurance carrier
- Collect any witness statements
Insurance companies often attempt to evade liability, but if we have the facts to prove the driver was being negligent, we can hold them accountable.
Costs & Losses After an Injury
Even if you are not at fault, a car accident can be a drain on your finances. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it may feel like you spend most of your time dealing with insurance companies and police reports, instead of focusing on your recovery. Let an experienced lawyer help take some of that burden off of your shoulders.
You may be entitled to compensation for:
- Loss of income from time off work
- Costs of repairs to your vehicle
- Medical or rehabilitation bills related to your injury
- Pain and suffering
How We Help
Attorney Cathy Flanzig leads the firm in handling the intricacies of New York's no-fault law, as well as underinsurance and uninsured motorist coverage issues. In New York State, in most cases, you have 30 days file for no-fault benefits. The no-fault coverage is what will pay your medical expenses, lost wages, and other reasonable and necessary expenses related to the accident.
We have obtained multiple verdicts and settlements for our clients in excess of 1 million dollars relating to motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents. Our success starts with a prompt and thorough in-depth investigation of each case to assess liability and determine fault. Working with experienced investigators we obtain photographs, witness statements, and other necessary information to determine all possible liable parties and preserve evidence for trial.
If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of a car accident, call us to schedule your free case review.
