Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

Can I Get Compensated if I Was Partly at Fault for My Car Accident?
The short answer is yes - many times, you can be compensated if you are partly at fault. Again, New York is a no-fault insurance state in which your own insurance pays for your out-of-pocket costs such as limited lost wages and medical bills up to $50,000.  When you make a claim for pain and suffering as well as certain economic loss above no-fault, the percentages of fault will be considered in your recovery. Your injury from your car accident may have a certain value, however, fault will be taken into consideration at the time of trial or settlement.
Can I bring a car accident lawsuit if I am undocumented?
Personal injury lawsuits can be brought without regard to your immigration status. Even if you are undocumented you have the right to sue for money damages for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering.
I Have Insurance, and I Have the Other Driver’s Insurance Information. Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Unfortunately, people are not always honest, and you need a knowledgeable lawyer to help you gather evidence that you cannot get on your own. Of course, you need the accident report, but you also may need witness statements, certified weather reports,  photos from the accident scene,  driver statements,  and other evidence to establish liability.
How Is Fault Determined in a Car Accident?
Fault is determined by the way that the accident happened.  Did a driver go through a light or stop sign?  Was the driver speeding or driving unreasonably under the circumstances?  New York is a comparative fault state, meaning you can still recover some compensation for damages even if you are the mostly at-fault driver. Many times, the crash is a result of both drivers who share percentages of the fault.
What Happens if the Other Driver Was Uninsured?
If the other driver was uninsured we can file an uninsured motorist claim under your vehicle’s insurance policy.  Automobile insurance policies written for New York State motorists are required to have uninsured protection.  This insurance will provide financial compensation to you, if the at fault driver does not have insurance. If you must file through your own insurer, you need a skilled law firm to help you recover the maximum money damages available.
Why should I contact a spinal cord injury attorney after a spinal cord accident?
The challenges that a spinal cord victim faces are ongoing and life-changing. A skilled attorney who can fight for your rights, compensation, and continuing medical expenses is invaluable.
What is the Average Settlement for a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?
Since medical malpractice covers such a wide variety of injuries and scenarios, there is no average settlement amount for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Furthermore, many individual factors can affect a settlement’s amount, such as the injury’s permanence and impact on your job and whether your case settles out of court. When thinking about your malpractice case, remember that it is a  personal injury with losses. Malpractice is then subcategorized into different types, each with its own area.  To learn more, please read our full article here.
What are the chances of recovery from a spinal cord injury?
Spinal cord injuries are one of the most devastating injuries you can suffer. While there is no way to reverse the damage completely, immediate treatment and medical advances can sometimes make a significant difference in the outcome.
