NYC Car Accident FAQ

Should I Speak With an Insurance Adjuster After a Car Accident Without a Lawyer?

If you are injured in a car accident, you’ll likely be contacted by the other party’s insurance adjuster. You do not have to speak with this person. They may sound friendly, but the truth is, they are not there to help. They are there to save their company money. Always consult with an attorney before speaking with an insurance adjuster.

I Was in a Car Accident With a Bus. Am I Entitled to Compensation?

If you’re injured in a bus accident caused by a negligent bus driver, you should be entitled to compensation. However, ensure you file your claim sooner rather than later, as you may only have a matter of months to bring a Notice of Claim.

Are Pedestrians Entitled to Compensation for Injuries?

As long as a pedestrian can prove that they were obeying the rules and regulations of the road (such as by not jaywalking) and they were struck by a negligent motorist, they should be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries.

Can I Sue for a Wrongful Death Car Accident Case?

If your loved one lost their life in a car accident, you can likely file a wrongful death claim on their behalf. If successful, you should receive compensation for the cost of medical care prior to their passing, lost wages they can no longer provide to your household, pain and suffering, the cost of funeral expenses, the loss of enjoyment of life, and a loss of companionship or guidance, among other things.
