Please keep reading to learn more and then give us a call to set up a free consultation.
How Do We Prove It Was the Other Driver’s Fault?
A key component of an accident case is determining who the liable party is in the accident. We can use any evidence that you may have collected at the scene like photos, videos, and reach out to witnesses if there were any we can track down. We can see if there is CCTV footage to access to watch the accident. Ultimately, we are going to use evidence to prove that the other driver was at fault for your accident.
You might be worried that you won’t be able to get justice because you were partly to blame for the accident. However, the laws in NYS allow you to get compensation even if you are partially at fault. If you, for instance, were deemed 30% at fault for the accident, then you would receive 70% of what your case is worth. Our automobile accident lawyer, of course, will fight to get you the fullest possible amount of compensation.
We will go toe-to-toe with the liable party’s insurance company to negotiate a compensation award to come up with a number that is as full and as fair as possible.
What Will My Compensation Award Be?
Receiving compensation will be in the form of money damages. You will be essentially reimbursed for every dollar you have spent because of the accident and then you will additionally receive money for your non-economic damages. The money that you have spent because of this accident is called economic damages. We can calculate all of the money that you have spent on medical treatment, medical equipment, and travel expenses. You will also be entitled to the money you lost from having to miss time at work, disability, or the money to make up the loss from having to take a lower-paying job if you are no longer able to do the work you used to.
Non-economic damages include all of your physical, emotional, and mental damages. This is a significant portion of your compensation for your auto accident. If your life has been impacted by this accident in any negative way, our automobile accident lawyers will fight to get you full compensation for those damages.
