White Plains Car Accident Lawyer
Don’t allow an insurance company to tell you what your auto accident claim is worth. Instead, get the full cost of your damages by working with a White Plains auto wreck attorney.
While the no-fault auto insurance system used by New York is intended to simplify things, the truth is that it works best for minor accidents that cause equally minor injuries. In the case of serious crashes that inflict major and catastrophic injuries, the no-fault system can actually complicate things as it adds additional steps to the process of seeking financial compensation.
After a collision that leaves you dealing with injuries and losses, the insurance companies aren’t going to be eager to help—not even your own. Ensure that you get the full compensation you need to put the crash behind you by working with a White Plains car accident lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP.
No-Fault Insurance in New York: Not Always the Answer
As New York is a no-fault state, the first step is always going to be filing a claim with your own insurer. Even here, the insurer will try to limit their financial responsibility by lowballing your settlement offer or trying to claim that certain damages aren’t covered by your policy.
Our car accident attorneys can ensure that you get all the benefits you’re entitled to by your policy. And if you meet New York’s serious injury threshold or if your damages exceed the limits of your policy, you might have the option to pursue a personal injury claim against the party responsible for causing the auto wreck.
Compensation Recovered from the At-Fault Party
When you meet the criteria to pursue an injury claim, it’s important to make certain that you demand compensation for all of your damages and injuries. A White Plains personal injury attorney can investigate the crash and assess everything it’s cost you—including what it will cost you in the future.
You can expect the other party’s insurer to be even more leery about compensating you than your own no-fault insurer was. They’ll likely try to push blame onto you, as successfully doing so can reduce the amount they owe you thanks to New York’s comparative negligence laws.
Our lawyers won’t allow them to make you a victim all over again. We’ll develop a case supported by all the available evidence that fully demonstrates who was responsible and what the car accident has cost you, such as the following:
- Current and future medical bills for treatment, medication, and equipment
- Car repair or replacement
- Lost wages and earning ability
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Lost quality of life
