Do you have a valid claim?
If you are injured in a car accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may have a valid claim worth filing a case for. This said, New York has a no-fault insurance law; meaning that anyone who has a vehicle licensed and registered in New York City must have no-fault coverage in case of an accident. The purpose of this is to ensure that if you are injured you will be compensated for medical bills quickly, up and to the value of $50,000. This will only, however, cover physical injuries and not vehicle damage. If you need to claim for personal injury, property damage, or mental wellbeing damage over the amount of $50,000, you may have a valid case. It is best to ensure that you have conducted an initial meeting with one of our lawyers to best ascertain whether you have a fair claim to compensation.
How long do I have to file a claim?
Like any legal claim, there is a time limit to how long you have before you can no longer claim for damages or injury. In New York, this is three years. It is however subject to a condition, such as if you were hurt during the injury and unable to lay the claim within the specified timeframe. Irrespective of the time lapsed, it is best to contact us at Bronx Personal Injury Lawyers, so that we can make sure you are not excluded from any damages.
Is my case worth it?
YES! Every case is worth contacting us, as there is not one unified answer to this question. Each case’s success story depends on many variables, such as what can be proved, who is at fault, the details of the accident, witnesses, injury to personal and vehicle. We can claim any medical bills needed from injuries whether it is physical or emotional, property damage, loss of income, and loss of quality of life. We understand that these claims have a wide range of variables and that they can be extremely sensitive and serious physical harm may have been caused, such as, death, amputation, paralysis, heart attacks, or significant fractures, which is why we always fight for fair compensation with the utmost of care and compassion.
How do I know who is liable?
Sometimes, when you are involved in a car accident, knowing which party is liable can be confusing, especially when both parties are claiming that they are not at fault. New York is a comparative negligence state, which means both parties could be found liable. Negligence by the other party, resulting in injury, loss of income or property, or death, is proven by our full understanding of the circumstances surrounding your accident. At Bronx Personal Injury Lawyer, we work with each of our customers to ensure that, where another party is liable due to negligence, our customers receive fair compensation. Call us now if you have been involved in an accident that you would like to lay a claim for.
