U.S. Has Seen a Spike in Auto Accidents Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic

Though the roads currently have a lighter volume of traffic, this does not prevent accidents from occurring–in fact, quite the opposite. Many states across the country have reported spikes in auto accidents and auto accident fatalities. If you are someone who has been injured in an auto accident, you must continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable New York City personal injury attorney who can fight for your right to financial compensation. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding the legal process ahead:

How do most auto accidents happen?

Sometimes, auto accidents are simply unavoidable, however, there are other times where auto accidents occur as a result of another party’s negligence. Some of the most common types of driver negligence are driving under the influence, texting while driving (or otherwise driving while distracted), driving while drowsy, and speeding. Oftentimes, if you were injured because a motorist was doing any of the above, there is a very good chance that you will qualify for compensation.

How do I sue someone for an auto accident?

If you are looking to sue someone for injuries sustained in an auto accident, the first thing you must do is reach out to an experineced New York City personal injury attorney who can gather and present all evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof. Our firm can work to obtain surveillance footage of the accident as it happened, pictures of the accident, witness statements, police reports, medical documents, and more.

How long will I have to sue another driver for an injury sustained in an auto accident?

If you are injured in an accident in New York State, you will have to file a personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is, generally, three years, you will, generally, have three years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party responsible. If you wait any longer than three years, you will most likely lose out on your right to sue. Do not let this happen. We can begin the claims process on your behalf today–all you have to do is give us a call.
