What should I do after a car accident in Manhattan?

It is very important that you seek immediate medical attention, as not doing so may cause worsening symptoms or permanent disability in the future. No matter what the cause of your injuries, always seek the attention of a medical professional and get the help that you need.

How can I file a claim for compensation after a car accident in New York?

It is always important that you gather as much information as possible, as soon as possible. This means taking pictures of the scene of the car accident, any damage to your vehicle or other personal property, and thoroughly documenting your injuries. It is also important that you get the other driver’s information and have it handy when you speak to your insurance company. Agencies, however, are not in the business of paying you as much as you may deserve. For this reason, it is important to have a skilled lawyer on your side.

How long will it take before I receive compensation after a car accident?

This depends on a number of circumstances. Most insurance companies settle or reject claims within 60 days, but depending on how complicated the case, it may take longer or shorter. However, if you believe your insurance company is taking an unreasonable amount of time, you should not hesitate to speak with a lawyer.

Should I accept the insurance company’s offer after a car accident?

If you believe the insurance company is offering you a settlement that is lower than you deserve based on your injuries and the damage to your vehicle, it is not in your best interest to accept. This happens often, because insurance companies are a for-profit business and they do not want to lose money. An experienced Manhattan car accident attorney can help evaluate your case and fight for the full amount that you may deserve.

How much compensation can I receive after a car accident?

Depending on the extent of your injuries and the damage to your property, you may be able to file a claim for damages to compensate you for emergency medical services such as ambulance rides and ER visits, ongoing medical expenses related to your injury, emotional distress and trauma (pain and suffering), rehabilitation costs, costs associated with a permanent disability, lost wages, and damaged property. Further, if you have lost a loved one, you may be entitled to punitive damages and funeral expenses as a result of a wrongful death.

Will I experience emotional trauma after a car accident?

It is common to experience a wide-range of emotions after a car accident. Some feelings may include shock, anger, anxiety, or guilt. If these feelings do not go away after a normal amount of time, it is possible that you may be going through a form of emotional trauma or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after being in an accident.
