Our Jamaica, NY, Car Accident Lawyer Is Ready to Fight for You

Hundreds of thousands of car accidents occur in New York State each year, regardless of the state’s safety campaigns and efforts. This is one reason that car insurance is compulsory because a driver’s odds of getting in a wreck in New York are high.

Sadly, insurance companies don’t make it easy for claimants to get the compensation they deserve. Instead, insurance company adjusters unreasonably dispute various aspects of the compensation claims they receive in hopes of paying claimants less or nothing at all. Because of this, car accident victims in Jamaica, NY, need a Jamaica, NY, car accident lawyer to take on insurance companies and compel them to pay what they owe.

Common Car Accident Causes

Car accidents have all manner of causes. However, a handful of them are more common than others. In most cases, negligence is the underlying factor, which means potential liability for the liable driver.

Common causes include:

  • Driving while distracted by texts, cellphones, rubbernecking, and other distractions
  • Driving while in a state of drowsiness or fatigue
  • Driving while consuming or having consumed drugs or alcohol
  • Failure to obey traffic signs and lights
  • Failure to yield
  • Driving an unsafe vehicle
  • Speeding
  • Following too closely

Knowing the cause of the accident is important because, in New York, negligent drivers can face a claim for compensation or a lawsuit if they cause an accident and serious injuries. If the injuries are not serious, it may not matter if negligence was involved since New York is a no-fault car accident state.

No-fault car accident rules require car accident claimants to seek compensation for their losses from their own personal injury protection policies except when they suffer a serious injury. Whether a driver was negligent is largely irrelevant for PIP purposes.

Damages for Car Accident Losses

Justice Through Damages

How much in damages you will receive is largely influenced by the following factors:

  • The seriousness of your injury: The more seriously you are injured, the more likely it is that you can pursue a negligence claim against the driver’s insurance company or sue the driver. Otherwise, you are limited to your PIP’s payout.
  • The experience and skill of your attorney: A seasoned car accident lawyer will know how to operate comfortably and confidently in the claims process or during a lawsuit. They will know how and when to use important tactics and can handle insurance company adjusters who try to pay less.

Regarding the second point, it is important to understand that your chances of getting maximum compensation are low to nonexistent without an attorney fighting for you. Insurance company adjusters and insurance defense attorneys get paid well to defend insurance companies against car accident claimants. Without a professional on your side to counter their efforts, you will likely receive less than you could have.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve got answers to your car accident questions. Please contact us if you have more questions after reading through the Q&A that follows.

  • How long do I have to file a car accident lawsuit?

    In New York, you have three years to file a lawsuit for damages after a car accident. Keep in mind that car insurance companies may have deadlines for filing claims that are far shorter than the three-year statute of limitations.

  • How much do Jamaica, NY, car accident lawyers charge?

    The car accident lawyers at Tucker Lawyers charge a contingency fee, which means you only pay if they win compensation for you. Additionally, you only pay at the end of your case and nothing upfront.

  • How long will my car accident case take?

    The precise circumstances will determine how long your case takes. If there are complex issues involved in your case, it will take longer than more straightforward cases.

  • How much in damages will I get for my car accident case?

    It’s not possible to say without first reviewing your case. You could be looking at a substantial payout if you have experienced serious injuries and other losses (such as lost income and pain and suffering). Minor injuries, on the other hand, are typically handled by PIP insurance, which provides a limited payout for damages.

  • Should I accept an insurance company’s compensation offer?

    You should not entertain any insurance company offer for compensation until consulting with an experienced Jamaica, NY, car accident lawyer.

  • Will my case go to trial?

    It is unlikely. Most car accident cases never see the inside of a courtroom. They are typically settled long before a judge and jury are necessary.

Don’t hesitate to reach out with your questions. An experienced Jamaica, NY, car accident lawyer is ready to help.
