Car Accidents in NYC

When You Are Seriously Injured, You Can Seriously Count On Us

Auto Accident AttorneysCar accidents happen on a daily basis in the United States, accounting for hundreds of thousands of injuries and deaths each year. Minor fender benders or accidents with damages less than $500 do not typically warrant the legal assistance of an attorney. However, you should consider hiring an experienced New York City car accident attorney if you have suffered personal injuries that require medical assistance or treatment.

At Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C., we have been fighting for the rights of New Yorkers injured in car accidents for more than 30 years. Our team of attorneys and support staff are dedicated to serving the needs of our clients and getting the maximum compensation they deserve for their injuries.

Car Accidents in New York Cause Serious Injuries

Regardless of how safe of a driver you are, you cannot always control the driving habits of other drivers on New York’s busy roads. As a result, you may become the victim of a car accident, suffering serious injuries.

If you have suffered any of the following serious injuries, you should contact our expert team of car accident attorneys to help you get the compensation that you deserve:

  • Internal injuries
  • Severe burns and lacerations
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Brain injuries, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Lower or upper limb injuries
  • Muscle and ligament injuries
  • Death of a loved one

Common Causes of Car Accidents in New York

Automobile accidents are a class of tort cases that derive, for the most part, from the basic tort principle of negligence, defined as the lack of ordinary care. In other words, negligence is a failure to use that degree of care that a reasonable, prudent person would have used under similar circumstances.

The most common types of car accidents are caused by:

  • Driver error or driver negligence – including failing to yield the right of way, failing to leave adequate space with the car in front, driving too fast and driving while intoxicated
  • Distractions to the driver – including use of cell phones, changing the radio station or putting on makeup
  • Failure to properly service and maintain a car, truck or bus
  • Road defect or negligent design of the roadway
  • Product liability or auto manufacturing defect

Reasons to Hire a Car Accident Lawyer

If you were involved in a car accident that was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another individual and you sustained serious personal injuries, you should contact a car accident attorney in NYC  as you may be entitled to compensation.

You can basically recover anything that has been an expense for you as a result of a car accident that was caused by the negligence of another driver. This includes:

  • All medical expenses
  • Any lost wages
  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of property
  • Loss of use of property

Insurance Companies Are Not On Your Side

You may be tempted to negotiate with the insurance company yourself. However, it is important to remember that insurance adjusters have one goal, to settle your claim for as little money as possible. Moreover, once you accept a settlement and cash the check from the insurance company of the at-fault party, your case is settled and there is nothing that even the most skilled car accident attorney can do to recover more money to pay for your damages and/or your personal injuries.

Before you make any decisions or even talk to an insurance adjuster, you should consult with one of our attorneys. Our legal team is experienced in negotiating with even the most skilled insurance adjustors. We will help you avoid financially painful mistakes.
