Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

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.
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 Much Does It Cost To Hire a Car Accident Lawyer?
When you are involved in a car accident, there is a free consultation. If you have a case, you pay no fees until we win your case. The cost calculates as a percentage of the amount you are awarded as compensation through settlement or jury trial, also known as a contingency fee basis.
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.
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.
What should I do after a car accident?
After a car accident, you should always call for help. While you wait for help to arrive, check for injuries—both your own and those of others involved in the collision. Be sure to accept necessary medical attention from any paramedics on the scene and follow up with a health care provider as soon as possible in the days following the accident. Last but not least, connect with a lawyer––and do it fast. Get more information on what to do after an auto accident by reading our full post.
Will my car accident case go to trial?
Most car accident cases settle before trial, however, you must be prepared to go all the way to jury verdict. If the defense counsel or the insurance adjuster senses that you are not ready to go the distance, they will try and settle for less than full value. Make sure your case is prepared to go all the way.
