No one is ever prepared for unexpected car accidents. Suddenly, you have so many questions and decisions to make. You might be wondering if you need a car accident lawyer, and the answer is yes, you do.
Handling all the details and choices you have to make, not to mention the mounting medical bills, will leave you feeling overwhelmed. There are significant benefits to hiring a car accident attorney, including:
New York car accident victims suffer many side effects and lingering problems from automobile accidents. The suffering and pain can feel endless, from fractures and internal injuries to loss of income and climbing medical expenses.
Getting your bills covered and receiving the compensation you need is very difficult without the settlement negotiations skill of an experienced lawyer. Insurance companies work for themselves, and they could minimize your circumstance and question the truth of your injury. Even when it is clear that you are not the at-fault party, they may treat you as if you caused the accident.
When you have a knowledgeable attorney fighting for you, they will attempt to obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to. In addition to helping you navigate the legal process, they will file a personal injury claim on your behalf. A New York lawyer knows how to navigate the system for you. For instance:
Any resident or visitor to New York will notice right away the high volume of traffic. Bicyclists, motorcycles, cars, buses, and cabs are crowding the roads at the same time. There are countless road accidents every year.
With the meteoric rise of cell phone use, distracted driving has become a top cause of car crashes. The National Highway Traffic Safety Association shows that distracted driving is a problem in every state. Motorists are consistently on their phones calling, texting, and video-chatting. Looking down to send a text requires five seconds, in which time you can drive the entire length of a football field with your eyes off the road.
Distracted driving also includes motor vehicle accidents in which the driver is changing radio stations, adjusting with the navigation, and eating while driving.
New York City is one of the most challenging places to drive with the combination of moving vehicles, bicycles, and thousands of pedestrians. Following too closely behind another driver is common. Many times drivers are aggressive in shifting lanes and driving too fast for conditions, causing rear-end collisions.
The Police Department of New York City reports that driving too closely constitutes the second-highest number of motor vehicle collisions in any given month. You should always leave sufficient car lengths behind the car in front of you and be aware of the overall driving conditions.
When a driver fails to yield to a motorist or pedestrian, there are fines and often court costs. While this might not seem significant, the ticket points will increase your insurance premiums for several years. Ultimately, you can lose your license for too many failures to yield offenses.
Speeding in NYC is a ticketable offense, with the fines increasing the higher over the speed limit you go. Drivers who get a speeding ticket must pay a fine, and the ticket impacts your insurance rates for several years. If you have multiple speeding tickets, you could lose your license. You may need an experienced attorney to help you navigate the speeding tickets and keep your driving privileges.
The CDC reports that one in three traffic deaths involve a drunk driver. Negligence due to drunk or impaired NYC drivers is may result in civil as well as criminal action. Drunk driving car accidents cause deaths every day in the United States.
The congestion of traffic in and around NYC can make navigating difficult. Driving challenges compound when there is road work or road defect. The following situations affect driving in the city regularly:
Vehicles and equipment have thousands of moving parts. When just one part stops working correctly, this can cause catastrophic situations like a blown-out tire or a vehicle roll-over. These problems could be due to defective design or defective parts. New York laws allow consumers to file a claim against automobile and equipment manufacturers when a faulty component causes harm.
If you decide you are eligible to file a lawsuit for compensation, you need a skilled attorney to help you get the maximum you can. An attorney will know about filing a products liability claim.
Fatigued drivers also account for vehicle crashes and deaths. Examples of this can be a new mother who is tired from staying up with a baby or someone who hangs out with friends late into the night. Fatigue leads to impaired cognition, low performance, lowered driver performance, and response time.
Numerous drivers and vehicle occupants killed in accidents are not wearing seat belts. A proper seat belt keeps you inside your vehicle in a crash, protects you from the force of the airbag deploying, and significantly reduces the risk of fatality in a car crash.
Many substances can impair your ability to drive safely, including:
When you are involved in a car accident, there is no way for you to know the extent of your expenses and injuries right away. Many costs continue long after the motor vehicle accident.
Without legal representation, the insurance company holds the power. A personal injury attorney can maximize the compensation that you receive and protect your legal rights.
An insurance adjuster works for the insurance company, not for you. Their goal is minimize their payout. To maximize your compensation, and receive what you are entitled to, you should strongly consider hiring a personal injury attorney.
If you try to represent yourself, one mistake can derail your case. It pays to have someone who knows the ins and outs of the court and how to secure the compensation owed to you.
