Queens Train Accident Lawyer
Few accident types are more devastating and difficult to move on from than train wrecks. Get the help you need by working with a Queens train accident lawyer.
Every so often, you hear about a train accident and the multiple injuries deaths that occurred to the people involved. What you don’t hear about is the aftermath of the accident and the long, drawn-out process that can make up filing a claim for compensation.
In addition to trying to recover from your commuter train wreck, you’re now faced with having to determine fault and how to proceed in your claim. Without the legal know-how and dedicated time set aside to do all of the investigative work it takes, you may find yourself undercompensated and more than frustrated.
Understanding what to do after your light-rail train crash takes the knowledge of a Queens train accident lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP. We can help you do all of the investigative work, negotiate with the insurance companies, and collect the compensation you deserve.
Compensation for Commuter Train Wreck Injuries
Accident victims often worry about how much compensation to expect, and this is especially true after suffering serious injuries in a train wreck. While the answer varies from case to case, you should expect compensation for all of your accident-related expenses and losses:
- Medical expenses, current and future
- Lost income, wages, and earning potential
- Rehabilitation or physical therapy
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of quality of life
The monetary expenses are generally the most obvious, but the non-monetary awards, also called non-economic expenses, aren’t always easy to put a dollar value to. In many cases, your Queens train accident lawyer will fight against the insurance company to get compensation for these non-economic expenses because we understand that the emotional distress of a train accident can be just as taxing as the accident itself.
Insurance Companies and Your Light Rail Accident
As many people are well aware, large insurance companies generally don’t have your best interests at heart. They’ll offer you a settlement for your medical bills and most-obvious monetary expenses, but it’s likely that their offer will be much lower than your need.
By having a lawyer negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf, you’re more likely to come out with the compensation you deserve. The losses mentioned above that fall under the category of non-economic damages are often “overlooked” by insurance companies because in the end, they care more about their bottom line than your case.
Other than fighting for the compensation you deserve, your attorney will gather all the necessary information on your train accident. The insurance company certainly won’t take the time to properly assess your claim, which is why their offer is bound to be a lowball settlement.
