Car accident law involves both traffic and personal injury law. If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, an attorney will negotiate with the other drivers or their insurer to determine the damage or compensation for your injuries, and if necessary, the attorney will file a lawsuit.
The courts will make its decision through the use of police reports, photos, and other evidence, and then use the N.Y. traffic laws as well as legal concepts to determine who caused the accident and the proper compensation for the other party. Most common compensation includes medical and property expenses, as well as for harm such as lost wages and pain and suffering.
If you suffered an injury in a car accident and wish to file a car accident law suit, it is imperative that you contact an attorney before the statute of limitations expires.
