Automotive Accident

Every driver owes a duty of care to operate their motor vehicle in a manner that is safe for other drivers, pedestrians, and their own passengers. If you are injured, and/or your property is damaged, in a car accident due to the negligence of another, you may be able to recover compensation.

New York is a “No Fault Insurance State.” This means that some compensation for damages caused by the use of a motor vehicle can be recovered regardless of who was at fault for causing the accident.

No Fault insurance covers economic items such as medical bills and lost wages. Which insurance company must pay for your No-Fault benefits differs depending on what role you were in at the time of the accident (e.g., driver, passenger, pedestrian, bicyclist, etc.).

Compensation can be received for pain and suffering if another driver, or entity, was at fault for the accident. You may need to show that your injuries meet a certain statutory threshold to recover for pain and suffering. Every incident is unique and needs to be evaluated individually.
