We represent clients who have been injured in car accidents, and we know that the aftermath of a car accident can result in immense stress and anxiety for you and your family. Injuries, lost wages, medical bills, and other damages can have significant impacts on your physical and financial well-being. A Queens car accident attorney at Sullivan Papain Block McGrath Coffinas & Cannavo, P.C., will fight to secure the compensation you need to help you recover from your injuries and move forward with your life.
Your car accident compensation rights depend on the facts of your accident. Important facts that impact your rights include the following:
Under some fact scenarios, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and other financial costs related to your injuries. If someone else is responsible for your injuries that qualify as ‘serious,’ you may be entitled to noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering.
As set forth under New York law, serious injuries include death, dismemberment, disfigurement, a fracture of a bone, loss of fetus, loss or limitation of use and function of a body part, and disability lasting at least 90 days out of the 180 days following your accident.
Our attorneys become personally invested in every case that we take on, and we pursue maximum compensation for every client. We will gather injury evidence, including medical bills, reports, treatment, opinions, and diagnoses, to help value your personal injury claim.
We will also focus our investigation on discovering and compiling evidence that helps to prove that the defendant’s negligence caused your accident. We will negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf and demonstrate the strength of your case and the totality of your injuries.
If you lost a loved one in a car accident due to someone else’s fault, you might be entitled to compensation under a New York wrongful death claim. Wrongful death recovery may include lost financial support, medical expenses, funeral and burial costs, and other losses. Additional recovery might be available if your loved one experienced pain and suffering as a result of the accident, before his or her death.
