Motor vehicle accidents are the cause of a substantial number of personal injury claims. Whether you are the driver, a passenger, a pedestrian, or a bicyclist, if you are injured in an accident, you should immediately seek quality medical attention. To protect your legal rights, time may be of the essence. New York’s no-fault laws have strict claim filing deadlines so it is imperative to have the facts of your claim reviewed by a skilled attorney as soon as possible. Kaye Law is adept at counseling clients through the complex process of establishing fault and recovering monetary restitution for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. While you focus on your recovery, we will exhaust every possible resource to help you collect damages to cover your losses.
Some important measures to take after a motor vehicle accident:
In Many Cases, Accident Victims Are Brought to The Emergency Room with Evident Injuries. However, We Recommend that You Seek Medical Attention Right Away Even if You’re only Experiencing “minor” Pain. While Doctors Explore the Possibility of Unseen Injuries, You Are Also Protecting Your Rights to Take Legal Action Later.
Kaye Law serves clients throughout the Queens, Bronx, Staten Island, and Manhattan areas of New York City.
Exchange information with anyone involved in the accident as well as potential witnesses. Ask for contact information including phone numbers and email addresses. Exchange driver’s license and insurance numbers. Use your cellphone to photograph the accident scene, cars, and any injuries. Call the police to the accident scene, and file a police accident report.
Insurance companies are more concerned with their financial bottom lines than with your welfare. At KayeLaw we have the experience to know what information they do and do not require and we will help determine what necessary documentation to provide.
