If you get hurt in an accident and need to pursue compensation, you do not have to build your case all on your own. Let our firm help you. A car accident lawyer in Queens can do a lot to help you strengthen your claim and fight for the kind of compensation that you deserve.
When Should I Hire a Car Accident Lawyer?
You should hire a car accident lawyer if you need to sue another driver for damages. In New York, your own insurance coverage can help you if you have minor injuries and some medical bills after a crash. However, if you get seriously injured you are likely to run up against the limits of your own policy.
Why should you have to pay all of these expensive medical bills if someone else caused your accident? Injuries from car crashes, like broken bones, concussions, and spinal cord injuries, can also result in lasting health problems. Recovery can take a while and it can be painful. In situations like these, you should sue for compensation that pays your bills and makes up for the emotional and psychic pain that you have experienced as a result of the crash.
What Will a Car Accident Lawyer Do to Assist Me?
Your car accident lawyer can do a lot to help you build a stronger case. They will:
Gather useful evidence: Was there video footage of the crash? Does the company employing the trucker that hit your car have a history of safety violations? Are there witnesses who can back up your claim? Your car accident lawyer will investigate every angle and gather every bit of evidence that can help you strengthen your claim.
Talk to experts: Your lawyer has access to a network of expert witnesses who can testify about your accident and how it affected you. Medical experts and life care planners can talk about how your injuries will affect you going forward. Vocational rehab experts can speak with authority about what kind of struggles you’ll face going back to work. We can also deploy mental health professionals who can talk about the pain and suffering that your accident caused.
Document your expenses: Your lawyer can help you track your losses from the accident, like missed paychecks and the costs of medical treatments. Then they can help you fight for fair compensation.
Will I Have to Go to Trial?
Some of our clients worry that their case will end up going to trial, necessitating court appearances and resulting in a long, drawn-out process. We usually have good news for them though. Most of these kinds of cases settle out of court. Our car accident lawyers have plenty of experience negotiating with insurance companies. In many cases, we are able to help our clients get the kind of compensation that they deserve without any time spent in the courtroom.
