Car Accident Lawyers Long Island

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

Car accidents can happen anytime, and they have the power to change your life forever. Even people who are not catastrophically injured might suffer from severe emotional damage following an accident, and their lives change forever. From medical bills to lost wages to funeral expenses if you lose a loved one in an accident, one car accident can cause any number of unfortunate situations. If the accident in which you are involved in was caused by someone else and their own negligence, you might have a personal injury case on your hands. It’s time to call an attorney to discuss your options.

What is Negligence?

The law defines negligence as a breach of duty. When a person is handed a driver’s license, they are agreeing to follow the rules of the road and to make choices that will keep others safe. They agree to take their duty to drive seriously, which means they agree to make the right decisions to avoid putting anyone in danger. If a person breaches this duty of care, they are negligent. For example, someone who drives drunk is negligent. Someone who fails to use their turn signal when changing lanes is negligent.

However, there are various degrees of negligence and blame. A person who is driving their car and their brakes stop working is not negligent when they hit you. However, the manufacturer of the vehicle may be negligent in this situation. The driver didn’t know their brakes didn’t work when they got in the car, so they did not knowingly put anyone’s life in danger. This is not a degree of negligence.

Understanding negligence in a car accident is not always as simple as pointing fingers at the person who caused the accident. This is when it’s important you hire an attorney to work with you. if you plan on filing a personal injury lawsuit to help you collect compensation for your injuries, an attorney must be able to prove there was negligence in some degree.

– Driver negligence
– Manufacturer negligence
– Road construction negligence
– Design defects

These are just a few examples of the many causes of car accidents, and each one is a different degree of negligence. Your attorney is here to help you decide which form of negligence is the one you should pursue in your case.

Understanding the Legalities

If you’re involved in a car accident and someone else caused it, you should know what to expect in terms of the legalities. For example, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will offer you a dollar amount following the accident, and it is not written in stone. You are not required to accept their settlement offer. You are free to negotiate the offer until you reach terms you feel are better.

Another way an attorney is useful is with the documentation you must sign. Your attorney knows which documents are required and which ones are not. The insurance company may not be completely honest with you about what you must sign and what they want you to sign. They want to get away with paying you next to nothing, and that means they will do anything they can to avoid paying you. Be careful what you sign.

Seeking Compensation

If you are involved in a car accident, get medical help right away. Don’t walk away and deny medical assistance if you don’t have any visible injuries. Internal injuries are a real problem, and they must be diagnosed and treated right away. Furthermore, it’s better to document your injuries right after an accident in case you decide to file a personal injury claim later.

Some injuries take longer to appear, and you might end up in need of surgery or living with life-changing injuries that you didn’t know you suffered during the accident. If you file a claim, you want the doctor to be able to prove you were injured after the accident rather than listen to the opposing party’s insurance company argue that you didn’t see a doctor because those injuries didn’t occur in the accident.

Seeking compensation is within your legal rights, but you must know what to seek. Your attorney will help you in that situation, and they will advise you what kind of compensation to ask for. From lost wages because your injuries made it impossible for you to go back to work to medical bills from the accident, you are within your legal right to ask for compensation from the person who caused your injuries. You didn’t ask for this, and you shouldn’t suffer more because someone else breached their duty.
