Motor Vehicle Accidents
Victims of motor vehicle accidents are often entitled to compensation for property damage, car replacement, repairs, medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In general, insurance carriers and adjusters handle these types of claims differently depending on whether the claimant is represented by counsel. When motor vehicle accident victims negotiate directly with insurance companies, full and fair compensation is very rare. The extent of the injuries is often not fully appreciated for weeks, months and in some cases even years after the accident.
At Sugarman Law Firm we strive to achieve the maximum recovery for each motor vehicle accident victim we represent. Even if you were injured in a motor vehicle accident that was entirely the fault of another party, the laws in the State of New York do not automatically give you the right to sue the responsible party for your losses. We understand the laws and cases which apply to this vast and constantly changing area of the law and we make sure each client we represent fully understands what they are entitled to. To fully assess your claim and the extent of your injuries, we thoroughly investigate the accident, take photographs and statements when necessary, and consult with accident reconstruction specialists, traffic engineers, economists, and vocational consultants. We work closely with your doctors to stay up to date on your medical condition, make sure your bills are being paid in a timely fashion, and gain a full understanding of your present condition and the long term problems your injuries may cause.
Whether the accident involved a boat, motorcycle, snowmobile, truck, car, or even if you were a pedestrian struck by a vehicle, we are familiar with the complex principles used to determine the causes of an accident, the medical evidence necessary to achieve a successful result, and the vocational and economic principles carriers rely upon to evaluate and calculate losses. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries in a motor vehicle accident, there is only one chance to obtain full and fair compensation for your losses.
