Determining the Liable Party
When we are working to get you justice after your winter car accident, we must start by determining who was at fault for the accident.
Often, we will have a clear answer. If another driver was speeding, ignoring traffic laws, or distracted, that is a very apparent indication that they are at fault for the accident.
We determine the liable party using evidence from the scene of the accident to prove our case.
Types of Damages
Once we have determined the liable party in your case, we will work to get full compensation. This compensation comes from the liable party’s insurance company. They are going to be financially responsible for covering your damages.
Your damages will be broken into two categories: economic damages and non-economic damages.
Economic damages in a winter car accident would be damage to your vehicle, lost income, lost earning capacity, and medical bills. Essentially, these damages are meant to reimburse you for the money you have lost because of this accident.
Non-economic damages include things like pain and suffering, emotional damage, loss of life quality, and more. These damages are more to do with how your life has been negatively impacted.
It is important that you reach out to us right away. There is a statute of limitations in NYS of three years. That means that once you hit the three-year anniversary of your accident, you are no longer going to be permitted to file a claim.
You do not want to miss out on getting the compensation that you deserve simply because you let too much time pass from the date of your accident.
