Understanding Your Rights and Obligations When You Have a Car Accident
When you’ve been injured in a car accident, you may not know where to turn. Should you deal directly with the other driver’s insurance company? Is fault an issue in the case? What paperwork must you send to the insurance company? Hiring an experienced attorney will ease your stress. We have years of experience working on personal injury cases. We are strong advocates you can depend on for results when you’ve been involved in an auto accident in the Long Island area. We can help you determine what steps to take during this difficult time.
Statute of Limitations
Many people do not realize that if they fail to file a lawsuit within a certain period of time, they will be barred from bringing a lawsuit. In New York, people who are injured in a car accident have only three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit in court. Of course, many car accidents end up settling out of court. It’s important to hire an attorney who is able to work on settling your case while remaining prepared to file a lawsuit and take the case to trial if necessary. Contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible after your car accident to ensure that you don’t miss any statutes of limitations.
New York’s No-Fault Insurance System
New York is one of only a few states that have no-fault car insurance systems. This system requires that you must collect first from your own insurance company, even if the other driver caused the accident. Fault is not considered unless drugs or alcohol are involved.
This rule is not absolute. You may have a personal injury claim against the other driver’s insurance company if the accident resulted in death or excessive medical bills over $50,000. Suffering certain serious injuries such as fractures or disfigurements may also allow you to file a lawsuit rather than collect from your own insurance company. Our Long Island personal injury office is available to discuss the facts of your case and to determine what rights you may have.
