Do I Have a Car Accident Case?

Not knowing whether you deserve compensation after a car accident can lead to a lot of worry about medical bills and lost wages.

In situations like this, the best thing to do is to meet with qualified car accident attorneys who can examine the details of the accident and let you know how you should proceed. Determining whether you have a car accident case is dependent on a variety of circumstances and everyone’s situation is different.

In fact, the only way to be absolutely certain that you don’t have a case is if no one was injured and there were no damages. Needless to say, this isn’t the norm in car accidents. Even then, you can’t know for certain that you aren’t injured, as some injuries can be delayed or not be immediately apparent.

Explained below are some of the things you should consider if you are trying to figure out if you have a car accident case.

Determining Fault in a Car Accident

Even in a no-fault state like New York, determining who was at fault for the accident is crucial to seeking compensation. No-fault states require drivers to carry insurance to cover themselves, but these policies do not usually cover bodily damage or personal pain and suffering.

In order to ensure you receive compensation for injuries and losses not covered by insurance, our attorneys will need to gather evidence, examine the details, and figure out who or what may have caused your accident.

In some cases, it is not the fault of any one person, but instead, road conditions or weather could be to blame. Even if it turns out to be the weather, whoever is responsible for maintaining the road may be at fault for not closing it in adverse conditions or not posting warning signs.

In these types of cases, it’s extremely important to have a qualified legal team on your side.

Recovering Losses After an Accident

Have you already paid your medical bills before consulting a lawyer or receiving an insurance settlement? Did you have to pay to repair damages to your car? These types of things can be addressed when recovering losses so that the victim of the car accident doesn’t carry more of a burden than necessary.

However, in order to ensure you get the compensation you need and deserve, you’ll need the assistance of the experienced attorneys at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP.
