Nassau County Car Accident Lawyer

A car crash can cause major injuries, vehicle damage, and emotional trauma. Get compensated for all of your losses by working with a Nassau County car accident lawyer.

If you’ve suffered a serious injury in a car wreck, you already know how much medical care is involved in the recovery process afterward. Between healthcare, lost income, property damage, pain, and lost quality of life, few things can disrupt your wellbeing and finances like a car accident can.

While New York is a no-fault state for car insurance, if your injuries are serious enough, you can move beyond the no-fault system and seek damages from the at-fault party through a personal injury claim. This will allow you to seek full compensation rather than just what’s covered by your personal injury protection policy.

You can’t expect the responsible party and their insurer to simply admit fault and treat your claim fairly, however. To get the most compensation possible from your claim, work with a Nassau County car accident lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP.

Identify Who Caused the Collision

While no-fault car insurance compensates you regardless of who was at fault, once you file a personal injury claim, fault becomes central to collecting damages. We will need to investigate the crash and build a compelling case that both proves the other party’s negligence and minimizes your own.

Because New York follows comparative negligence in injury claims, your percentage of fault will reduce your compensation. Insurance companies know this, and trying to pin blame on crash victims to limit their financial liability is one of their preferred tactics.

When investigating the auto wreck, your Nassau County car accident lawyer will need to consider all possible causes and who might have been responsible. It’s entirely possible that multiple parties will bear some level of negligence, and it will be important to seek compensation from everyone responsible. These are just a few of the possible causes that will need to be considered:

  • Distracted driving, such as through texting and cell phone use
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Dangerous road conditions due to neglected maintenance
  • Defective car parts and tires

Collecting Full Compensation for the Crash

Whether your injury was a minor bone fracture or a serious traumatic brain injury, you deserve to be fully compensated for its impact on both your bank account and your quality of life. The insurance company might make you an offer to settle soon after the crash, but you should never accept such an offer without first having a Nassau County car accident lawyer review it. These offers frequently only cover the most obvious expenses, leaving you uncompensated for future expenses and less-obvious damages.

Listed below are just a few of the damages that should be included in your compensation if they apply to your specific case:

  • All medical expenses, both current and future
  • Transportation costs
  • Lost income, wages, and earning capacity
  • Vehicle repair and replacement
  • Emotional distress and treatment
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement
