Manhattan Car Accident FAQ | Here’s What You Should Know

Car accidents are devastating, and after sustaining an injury in one, you likely have several questions about what happens next and how you should proceed. For this reason, our Manhattan car accident attorney has answered some of the most common questions concerning car accidents in NYC below.

Manhattan Car Accident FAQ | Answers to Your Pressing Questions

Just some of the most questions we’ve received lately regarding car accident claims are as follows:

Q: Do I Need to Hire a Car Accident Lawyer After Sustaining an Injury?

A: Though you technically do not need an attorney to file a personal injury claim, you’re always best served with a seasoned personal injury lawyer in your corner. We know how to negotiate with insurance companies, and, if necessary, take your case to trial in pursuit of the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.

Q: Who Do I Sue if I Was Injured by an Uninsured Motorist in NYC?

A: When injured in an accident caused by an uninsured motorist, you will likely sue your own insurance company under your uninsured motorist policy. This allows you to get the compensation you need, even in the absence of the other driver’s insurance.

Q: Can I Sue an Uber Driver for an Injury in NYC?

A: Yes, you can, but the laws surrounding Uber’s liability for auto accident injuries here in New York City are complex. Both when and how you were injured will play a significant role in your ability to recover compensation, so it’s best you retain the services of a knowledgeable injury attorney who understands the ins and outs of these accidents.

Q: What Does Compensation Cover in a Car Accident Case?

A: As long as we can satisfy the burden of proof in your car accident case (meaning we prove that you were hurt due to someone else’s negligence) you should receive financial compensation to help you deal with the monetary and non-monetary damages you’ve sustained. This can include the cost of lost wages, the cost of medical care, the loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, scarring/disfigurement, and more.
