Guiding Clients Through the Post-Accident Process
One of the first questions our clients ask is, ” what should I do if I’ve been in a car accident?
Your first priority after a car accident is to seek medical attention.
When you have been injured in a motor vehicle crash, the first thing to do is get proper medical attention, even if your injuries do not seem serious. What seems like “minor” neck pain could really be a spinal cord injury that eventually results in partial paralysis if not treated correctly.
Prompt medical attention is also important because it fully documents your medical condition and the extent of your injuries. This can prove to be extremely valuable evidence in the event you decide to pursue a personal injury claim.
Your next step is to file a claim for insurance benefits to recover for your injuries.
During this stressful time, it is difficult to understand the complicated New York insurance laws and regulations, particularly those involving No-Fault benefits. However, a claim for No-Fault benefits MUST BE FILED WITHIN 30 DAYS of the accident or potential benefits can be reduced or lost. Our attorneys at Lozner & Mastropietro are here to help guide you through the complex insurance process.
You must determine if your motor vehicle crash was the result of another’s negligence
If you suffered serious injuries in a motor vehicle crash or lost the support of a loved one as a result of a fatal car accident caused by another’s negligence, you may be entitled to a personal injury or wrongful death claim. In New York State, a car accident victim may recover for injuries even if he or she was partially at fault for the accident.
Our lawyers will pursue legal action to recover the compensation to which you are entitled. We will file the personal injury lawsuit against the responsible parties for financial losses such as medical bills and lost wages not covered by No-Fault, Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist coverage; pain and suffering; projected life-care costs and possibly more.
Experienced Car Accident Trial Lawyers Proving Your Case
In New York State, a person must prove two main issues to a judge or a jury in any car or motor vehicle accident claim:
- Liability – It must be shown that the negligent party was at least partially at fault for the accident.
- Injury or Damages – The full injury or value of the claim must also be demonstrated. This may require the use of expert analysis and medical testimony that can attest to the severity of the injuries and the extent of financial and emotional losses suffered.
At Lozner & Mastropietro, our Brooklyn trial attorneys have the resources and experience to see that our clients recover full compensation for injuries due to car or other motor vehicle accidents.
