2021 has been the deadliest year for car accidents, according to the NY Post. When you have been in a car accident caused by someone else, it can leave you devastated. We know the ramifications of a severe car accident injury. Our auto accident attorney can help you get the justice that you deserve. Here is what you need to know:
When you are involved in an accident, there are going to be damages that you suffer from. You might have physical, emotional, and material damages.
We aim to get compensation for all of it.
Your Queens injury lawyer will be calculating all of the economic loss that you suffered. That includes:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Accident-related travel expenses
- Damage to your vehicle, etc.
Essentially, any money you have spent because of having been in a car accident will be considered economic damage.
Your non-economic damages are things like:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish, etc.
If you now suffer depression and anxiety because of your accident, that is something of non-economic damage. We call it non-economic because there is no set price on things like this. While we do fight for you to get full compensation for your non-economic damages, we know that the money can, in no way, repair the mental suffering you have been through.
Act quickly because you will be held to the statute of limitations.
How a Claim Works
Your auto accident attorney is going to be working tirelessly against the liable party’s insurance company to make sure that the damages you get in compensation are as full as they possibly can be.
The liable party will be determined after an investigation is performed. We look at evidence such as photos and videos from the scene. If we can get our hands on video footage from CCTV cameras to watch the car accident happen in real-time, that is even better.
Your auto accident attorney is in charge of gathering enough proof to show that the other driver was at fault for causing the accident.
Once we know who the liable party is, we can go forward with pushing to give you a fair result.
They might come back to us early on with an offer for a settlement. Please understand that this initial offer is almost always far too low for it to cover all of your damages.
We can push back against them until they offer you something fair. If they never provide you a fair settlement, we start looking into taking them to trial.
Sometimes, we prepare for trial and have a date set to go to court; then, right before we get there, the insurance company comes forward with an offer that fully covers your damages.
We will always prepare a case as if it is going to end up in trial. Most cases do not.
