Brooklyn Speeding Accident Lawyer
Few things are more frustrating than being injured in an accident caused by a driver who was breaking the speed limit. You weren’t at fault, but you were the one who got injured.
Unfortunately, this happens all too often. In many cases, the problem is simply caused by negligence—drivers not paying attention to where they are going or how fast they are moving. These choices can have disastrous consequences and can result in serious injuries.
The worst part is that speeding accidents are entirely avoidable and are almost always the result of someone’s irresponsible decisions. In order to ensure you get the justice you deserve, you need an experienced Brooklyn speeding accident lawyer on your side.
New York No-Fault Car Insurance Policies
New York is a no-fault state, so everyone is required to carry insurance to cover themselves and their passengers.
In New York, it does not matter who is at fault for an accident in order for some of the expenses to be covered by your insurance immediately.
However, not everything is covered by all policies, and your expenses may exceed the limits of your plan. In these scenarios, some costs can be recovered if it can be demonstrated that someone else was at fault—as is usually the case in accidents caused by speeding.
When someone else causes an accident while driving too fast, he or she should be held responsible for the consequences and compensate you for the damages and injuries caused.
Seeking Compensation After a Car Accident
The lawyers at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP can ensure that you are properly compensated for any injury resulting from someone else’s speeding. However, the courts will determine the percentage of fault each involved party is responsible for.
For instance, if the other driver was speeding, the majority of the fault will likely be placed on him or her. On the other hand, if you pulled out in front of the other driver, you may also bear a percentage of the fault, regardless of the other driver’s speeding.
If you bear 20 percent of the fault, and the speeding driver bears 80 percent, then you will be held responsible for 20 percent of what happened and the associated expenses. If you weren’t at fault at all, you’ll need an experienced lawyer to help demonstrate this so that your settlement isn’t unfairly reduced.
