New York Car Accident Lawyer

New York State reports that its busiest roadways can see upwards of 100,000 vehicles in a single day. With so many vehicles on the road, it seems inevitable that accidents will occur, but not all accidents are created equal.

If you were injured in your car crash due to someone else’s fault, a New York car accident lawyer from Shulman & Hill can help. Our team can pursue fair compensation for your medical bills, property damage, and physical and emotional suffering. To get started, call (555) 555-5555.

What Does Car Accident Compensation Look Like?

Every situation is different. Some people may suffer a serious but straightforward injury that will heal with proper care. Others sustain multiple, catastrophic injuries that will dramatically alter the rest of their lives. The team at Shulman & Hill personal injury law firm in New York can determine which of the following damages you can seek, as well as fight to recover:

Medical Expenses

Your primary concern after suffering an injury should be getting medical care. This could mean:

  • Going to the hospital
  • Taking medication
  • Undergoing tests or surgery
  • Receiving specialized or follow-up care
  • Seeking mental healthcare
  • Buying assistive devices, like crutches, canes, or hearing aids
  • Renovating your home to accommodate a disability
  • Hiring a home nurse

Lost Employment or Income

With some injuries, you may have to reduce your working hours or take time off work altogether for days, weeks, or months. Catastrophic injuries could force you to retire permanently.

Our firm can calculate how much money you have already lost due to your injuries. We can also estimate how much you should have earned in both income and benefits over your lifetime.

Property Damage

You rely on your car not just to commute to work, but also to fulfill your other obligations to your household, such as grocery shopping and picking up the kids from school. If your car is damaged or totaled in an accident, you might have to spend a great deal of money and extra time to get those everyday tasks done.

Fortunately, a settlement can help you pay for things like car repairs, car rental, the cost of public transportation, and the purchase of a new vehicle.

Physical Pain and Suffering

Aside from financial stress, your accident injuries have likely caused physical pain and suffering. You may experience:

  • Pain and suffering (both psychological and physical)
  • An inability to return to the lifestyle you had before
  • Temporary or permanent disabilities, e.g., the loss of a limb, nerve damage, bone fractures, or a traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Disfigurement caused by the accident itself or treatments stemming from it, e.g., surgical scars
  • Loss of consortium with a spouse

Compensation to care for your injuries and compensation for the financial losses you’ve incurred are equally important. We can make sure you understand your injuries’ true worth and that you ask for fair settlement in your legal action.

Workers’ Compensation and Car Accidents

If your car accident was work-related, you could file a workers’ compensation claim in addition to filing a personal injury lawsuit. Our lawyers can guide you through both types of cases concurrently, saving you time and money. According to the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB), injured workers are entitled to:

  • Any medical treatment that could save their lives or improve their quality of life
  • A percentage of the income they have lost by not working if they are out of work for more than seven days
  • Disability benefits to compensate them for total, partial, permanent, and temporary loss of physical and/or intellectual abilities

If the car accident was fatal, the victim’s surviving family can receive survivor benefits for funeral expenses and loss of financial support.

The New York car accident lawyers at Shulman & Hill handle all types of cases, including personal injury, wrongful death, and workers’ compensation. No matter what your situation is, our team can help.

How Our Car Accident Lawyers Can Help You

call a New York car accident lawyerAt Shulman & Hill, we take every case personally. Our team understands how much pain you and your family have already gone through because of this car accident, and we want to make it easier for you to get the compensation you need to start rebuilding your life.

We can look at evidence such as police reports, video footage, and eyewitness testimony to figure out who is culpable in your case – even if the other driver fled the scene. We do not want you to inadvertently leave money on the table by failing to file suit against each and every liable party.

Communicating With Others

During your case, numerous other parties may try to get in touch with you. Most notably, insurance adjusters from both your and the other party’s insurance company may want to talk to you about the accident.

Speaking to other parties on your own could jeopardize your case. They could try to manipulate you into:

  • Admitting negligence (even if you are not negligent)
  • Admitting you do not know if the liable party is really negligent
  • Implying your injuries are not as bad as you claim

We encourage clients to let us know if anyone tries to talk to them about the accident. One of our attorneys can reply on your behalf.

New York Car Accidents Are All Too Common

New York City is known for its excellent public transportation system. But despite the large utilization of bus and rail services, many other vehicles with which collisions are possible still use the city’s roads, including:

  • Cars
  • Commercial vehicles
  • Rideshare vehicles from companies like Uber and Lyft
  • Buses
  • Tractor trailers
  • Trucks
  • Motorcycles
  • Taxis

Anyone who has navigated the busy streets of New York knows that the traffic can be hazardous to one’s health. Thousands of New Yorkers are seriously injured and killed in traffic crashes every year. Deaths and serious injuries in traffic are often preventable crashes—not inevitable accidents.

When another driver’s mistake injures you or damages your property, you have every right to seek full and fair compensation. While New York’s no-fault insurance coverage is supposed to simplify car accident cases, it presents its own difficulties, and cases must often be resolved through negotiated settlements or court awards. In the meantime, medical bills pile up, and lost income takes its toll, putting you deeper into debt.
