Auto Accident Lawyer in Tonawanda, NY
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of traumatic injuries to people. In New York, if you are injured due to the carelessness of another car or truck on the road or because of the carelessness of the driver of the car in which you are riding, you may have a claim for bodily injuries if your injuries are considered serious injuries under the law.
If you are in a car accident and believe you are injured, you should notify the police, seek immediate medical treatment, notify the insurance company and then call our office.
There are various time requirements concerning your claim and it is important to seek legal advice as soon as you can to comply with those requirements. If you do incur medical expenses and lost wages, the insurance for the car in which you were riding would cover those expenses and that insurance is commonly known as no fault insurance. If you did suffer serious injuries as a result of someone’s carelessness, you may be entitled to money compensation for your injuries as well as lost wage and medical expenses. In New York, every car is required by law to have minimum insurance policy limit of $25,000 per person injured or $50,000 per accident if two or more people are injured.
