Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

How do I find a lawyer for a car accident?
Finding a lawyer to represent you in your car accident case requires research—there simply is no way around it. Begin your homework by searching online for car accident lawyers in your area (New York City, Bronx, or Queens, for example). As you review their websites, check for the following characteristics: 
  • Experience in personal injury law—and with car accidents, specifically
  • Results—financial value of settlements and awards
  • Positive testimonials that speak to you
You can read more about how to find a lawyer for a car accident here.
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.
Should I get a lawyer for a car accident?
You can argue that the best time to hire a car accident lawyer is shortly after your accident happens. By hiring a car accident lawyer from our firm, you:
  • Protect yourself from insurance companies
  • Have a buffer between you and the parties who caused your accident
  • Reduce the risk of your rights being violated
The insurance company may try to get you to accept a low settlement offer. These offers come quickly but generally do not cover your long-term losses. A lawyer from our team will shield you from lowball settlement offers by fighting for the full scope of your damages. You can learn more by reading our full blog post here.
How does a medical malpractice lawsuit work?
Medical malpractice lawsuits usually begin with an insurance claim. Your attorney will attempt to prove your case and negotiate a settlement that covers your damages. If obtaining compensation outside of court is not an option, you can pursue a civil suit. Want to find out more? Read our full article here.
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.
Who do I sue for my injuries in a car accident case?
Claims for car accidents are usually made against the insurance companies for the owners and operators of the vehicles involved in the car accident. Sometimes a driver’s employer, a business entity or other party may need to be added to the claim and future lawsuit. Make sure that all of the proper parties are made part of your case so that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.
What questions should I ask a personal injury lawyer?
When searching for a personal injury lawyer, you should ask questions about their experience, services and results.  You only have one chance to recover and finding the right lawyer can make a big difference in the final outcome of your case, the level of services that you receive, and the amount of compensation that you are awarded.   Want more information? Read our full article here.
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.
