Were You Involved In A Car Accident?
When a person experiences a car accident, the last thing they want to deal with is the complex legal and insurance issues that soon follow. It’s critical for individuals to protect their rights in this situation. A person will want to have all of their accident-related medical costs, damages and any other expenses associated with the accident paid. A New York car accident attorney will have the training and experience to make this happen and help get the compensation that’s deserved under New York Law.
You Only Have One Opportunity
After a car accident, the victim has one chance to get it right. The legal world is filled with critical procedures that must be followed and documents that have to be correctly filed. The appropriate medical treatment must also be received. If an injury is not properly documented, witnesses are not correctly interviewed, important photographs not taken; then a person’s case can become much more difficult. Missed opportunities can cause problems when trying to recover damages for injuries in a car accident and in some cases, they are lost forever.
New York Statute of Limitations
When a person has a car accident, it is important that they do not wait to seek compensation. New York does have laws which limit the time an injured person can receive compensation. This only applies to seeking legal remedies and not filing insurance claims. In New York, a person has three years to bring a lawsuit concerning a motor vehicle accident. A person only has 30 days to file a No-Fault insurance claim. An employer must be notified within 30 days of the accident for a person to qualify for Worker’s Compensation. There are some exceptions and a New York car accident attorney would know them.
