Under New York state law, if someone else’s negligence caused an accident that left you injured, you could be entitled to compensation for your damages and expenses. This isn’t something that happens automatically, however: It’s necessary to prove who was responsible and how.
For many injury claims, this will require taking on an opposing attorney or the at-fault party’s insurance company, who will stop at nothing to reduce their financial liability—or avoid it completely. If they’re successful, this could leave you paying out of pocket to recover from an injury that wasn’t your fault.
You can avoid this situation by working with a Babylon personal injury lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP. The insurance companies don’t have any tricks that we haven’t seen before, and we can get you the full value of your claim.
Because the negligent party was responsible for causing your injury, they also need to be responsible for financially compensating the damages and losses it has caused you. Some of these losses will be readily apparent and likely financial in nature, such as medical bills and missed time at work.
Other losses, however, will be less obvious. Many accident victims don’t realize that their lost quality of life and emotional damages could also qualify for financial compensation. Likewise, future losses also need to be accurately anticipated and evaluated.
Your personal injury lawyer will help you fully assess the value of your claim, so that you can include all the damages you’ve experienced in your demand for compensation. These are just a few examples of losses you might be able to recoup:
New York’s no-fault car insurance system is intended to simplify the process of recovering much-needed compensation after a wreck, but for many victims of serious car accidents, it effectively adds an additional step in the process of recouping the full cost of injuries and damages.
If this is your situation, you already know that this additional complication comes at a time when you need it least. Add to this the fact that the other driver’s insurance company isn’t going to be eager to compensate you fairly, and a bad situation can suddenly feel incredibly overwhelming.
The good news is that you can drastically simplify things by working with a Babylon car accident lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP. We know the ins and outs of personal injury law, and there’s nothing the insurance company can throw at you that we haven’t seen before.
You should always be leery about any offers or requests made by an insurance company after you’ve filed a claim for an accident—even if it’s a no-fault claim with your own insurer.
The unfortunate truth is that insurance companies will prioritize their financial bottom line over your needs and wellbeing. Even if the insurance adjuster seems sympathetic to your plight, it’s critical that you remember these professionals are trained to minimize the financial liability of their employer, and that getting you to believe they’re on your side so that you’ll accept a lowball settlement offer is part of that.
A car accident attorney from our firm can prevent this from occurring with your claim. We’ll handle all of the communication, meaning that falling for an insurance company’s unscrupulous tactic isn’t something that you’ll have to be worried about.
Your Babylon auto accident lawyer will also ensure that a full assessment of your claim’s value is conducted. From the financial to the intangible, we know the damages and losses that traffic wrecks and injuries can cause.
By working hand-in-hand with you and your doctor, we can identify and accurately value each and every loss you’ve experienced, including your anticipated future losses. These are just some of the damages you might be eligible to demand compensation for:
From commercial trucks such as 18-wheelers to industrial vehicles like dump trucks, collisions involving these large vehicles can easily be devastating in terms of injuries and damages caused, as well as traumatizing to survivors.
Recovering from one of these accidents is not easy. It typically requires a great deal of time, money, and perseverance. If this is what you’re currently going through, you should be aware that you do have the option to seek compensation from the at-fault party, which can make your recovery process go much, much smoother.
This isn’t an easy process in and of itself, however, as it often means dealing with the trucking company’s insurer—who isn’t going to be eager to pay you. Give yourself the best chance of recovering the full compensation you’re due by working with a Babylon truck accident lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP.
The immense size of these vehicles is typically what makes accidents with tractor-trailers so dangerous. However, the operation of a commercial truck can go wrong in a number of different ways, any of which can lead to a serious crash.
Your truck accident attorney will need to investigate what led to the accident so that you can prove who was at fault and why you deserve to be compensated for your losses. The investigative process is often complicated in these wrecks, as commercial vehicles typically have a number of different people involved in their maintenance and operation—not just the trucker and the trucking company.
These are just a few of the potential causes commonly scene in semi-truck accidents that will need to be considered when developing your claim:
When seeking compensation from a trucking company or its insurer, it’s critical to know the value of your claim before entering negotiations. They’ll try to lowball it if at all possible, even if they don’t try to blame you for the truck accident.
Your attorney can ensure that you don’t inadvertently accept an inadequate settlement amount. We’ll make certain that every expense and loss is accounted for in the monetary compensation you ultimately receive, including any of the following that apply to your injury claim:
After getting injured in a motorcycle wreck, you should have just one priority to focus on: making the fullest recovery possible. Sadly, most accident victims don’t have this luxury, often finding that they have a never-ending stream of headaches concerning medical bills and insurance claims that must be dealt with.
Making matters worse, it’s the rare insurance company that’s willing to fully compensate you without a fight. Most will attempt to shove blame for the crash onto you, as doing so can reduce the amount of money they have to pay you—possibly absolving them completely.
When it comes to motorcycle accident claims, the best approach is to work with a Babylon motorcycle accident lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP. We can handle the legal process on your behalf, ensuring that you get all the compensation you’re entitled to without having to worry about dealing with all the hurdles on your own.
As a biker, you’re no doubt aware that many people stereotype motorcyclists as reckless, dangerous drivers. What you might not realize is that insurance companies love to use this angle to their advantage.
If the insurance company’s attorneys can convince a jury that you were at fault for the crash—or even partially at fault—it could cost you significantly when it comes to your financial compensation. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are at an immediate disadvantage in this regard, as the other side simply has to portray you as just another careless biker.
Our motorcycle accident attorneys know how to expose these unscrupulous tactics for what they are. We can work with you to develop an argument that fully illustrates just who was at fault for the wreck and how. Your lawyer won’t allow them to falsely portray you as responsible for the collision just because you ride a motorcycle.
Siler & Ingber, LLP is here to help you recover the full cost of your injury claim. Our firm understands that there is no second place in litigation, so we’re never satisfied with anything less than the best outcome possible.
